Teddy Bear Toss !

Not being a Hockey fan though I have relatives who are, this was a totally new thing for me.

What thing? you ask.

Well, it seems that there is a hockey team in Canada, the Calgary Hitmen, who each year hold a Teddy Bear Toss.

This is truly an amazing sight to behold !

23,096 Stuffed animals were tossed onto the ice rink during the 2010 Toss!

But rather than rattle on about it, you need to see this 1 minute 32 second video and read about how, when, and why it is done.
