S.J. Sharkie Teaches Flyers Mascot Gritty a Harsh Lesson After Sharks' Rout

The Sharks took care of business on the ice Tuesday, and S.J. Sharkie did the same on Twitter.

The target: Gritty, the Flyers' new yet quickly beloved mascot, who was feeling himself a little too much before Tuesday night's game in Philadelphia.

As the Sharks finished their 8-2 rout of the Flyers, S.J. Sharkie had some words for Gritty. You see, Gritty had visited a local aquarium and decided to talk trash, angrily clearing a rack of plush sharks in the gift shop and posting a video of him trying to catch an actual shark with fishing line.

Now, it was S.J. Sharkie's turn to teach the new kid in town a lesson. And he took some big swings, first at Gritty's very familiar-looking arena entrance, then on the staying power of his rivals' boasts.

At this point, you might be shouting, "That man has a family!" But S.J. Sharkie, a veteran of the rough-and-tumble hockey mascot game, wasn't done with Gritty yet.

So far, silence from Gritty. Which might be the smartest thing he's done the last two days.
