PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Bryce Harper isn’t the only Philadelphia icon to break out a headband supporting another city idol. The Philadelphia Flyers have joined in the fun, now offering Gritty-themed headbands ahead of their home opener Wednesday night against the New Jersey Devils.
The Flyers shared a photo on social media Tuesday with some of their players rocking the Gritty headband.

Harper broke out the Phillie Phanatic headband during the Phillies’ 7-6 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 18.
The Phanatic headband then became available for fans to purchase and instantly became a fan favorite.
With Gritty quickly becoming everyone’s favorite mascot, the headband certainly should be a hit among Philly sports fans.
