Gritty's pregame show antics

No one is safe from Gritty.

The Philadelphia Flyers mascot was up to his old tricks again, this time dousing Los Angeles Kings broadcasters Jim Fox and Daryl Evans in silly string.

Fox and Evans were in the middle of breaking down the Kings power play on live television, but everyone's favorite big orange furball didn't seem to care.

The Kings broadcast team did of course chuckle at the scene, it's Gritty, after all, but were also certain to point out that Bailey, the beloved Kings mascot, was their favorite in the game hands down.

Gritty responded by standing in front of the camera and blocking the broadcast team's live shot for a few more seconds.
