…WHEN 25,000 STUFFED ANIMALS FLY THROUGH THE AIR AND ATTACK CANADIAN HOCKEY PLAYERS!!!
I had to look up what was going on here, and it’s really good! Basically, the league designates a game shortly before Christmas, and when the home team scores their first goal on that night, everyone throws their teddy bears, which are collected for charity.
Guess it’s better than the San Francisco tradition of naked Santa Clauses.
The Syracuse Crunch (AHL team) tried this same “teddy-bear toss” last week. It, umm…, didn’t go as planned.
“The frustrated fans weren’t going to hold onto their fuzzy friends any longer. A torrent of toys flew onto the ice, even though the Crunch had not yet scored.”
Glad to see Calgary changed the team name. The “Calgary Murderers for Hire” had an unwholesome feel to it.
