Teddy Bears and Hockey!

Here’s something to restore your faith in people. Last week the Calgary Hitmen minor league hockey team held their annual “teddy bear toss” game. In the 2nd period, Jordy Stallard got the first goal of the contest for the home team. That was the signal for plush toys to be tossed on to the ice. By the time the fans were done, the ice was littered with more than TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND of them! Officials say it’s a new world record. The bears will go to 50 different local charities.
