Gritty says yes! DC sports reporter proposes to Flyers mascot


The Philadelphia Flyers' popular mascot, Gritty, was in town for Hockey on the Hill event in Washington, DC.

The event was organized to spread awareness of the NHL and the NHL Players' Association Future Goals program.

The program is intended to help teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) using hockey.

While he was the nation's capital, Gritty got to spend time with fans, politicians and even WJLA sports reporter Erin Hawksworth, who got to ask the popular mascot a few questions.

Gritty joked about his parody of Kim Kardashian's photo, and even said yes when Hawksworth asked to marry him!

Hopefully the Capitals-Flyers rivalry won't be an issue for the couple.
