Any talk about Gritty being a kid’s worst nightmare was erased this week when the lovable orange thing surprised young Caiden O’Rourke. Caiden was recently fitted with a Gritty-themed prosthetic leg. This shows the amazing power of a mascot in action. Yes Gritty went viral with this clip, but the audience of one will never forget the moment.
Reminder that some of your water cooler moments won’t come at the rink.
