I have to admit, when Gritty first came out I was very anti Gritty. I hated everything about him. I said things like…
“This is what franchises do to distract you from the decades of no winning”
“Stanley Cup winners don’t do this”
“If Melissa McCarthy was a mascot”
“This fucking stinks out loud”
“This stinks on ice”
Clearly was not a big fan of Gritty at first, but now I’ve changed my mind. I am fully on Gritty. In fact I pity those who don’t love Gritty. He is so bad, so ugly, so dumb that he is likeable. I don’t know how but everyday he has changed my opinion and my mind. Most of all he has changed my heart. I hope Gritty can forgive me, I hope he can let go of the hate I had for him and the disdain my heart-felt, because now I love Gritty and I think he’s pretty.
Let me wobble back to my corner, Joe Pa knew.
