>It’s not unusual during Spring in Wisconsin to watched a little baseball and then go to a hockey game. The annual Teddy Bear Toss has become a family tradition. It’s almost, but not quite, a regular hockey game. You can tell it’s not a typical game because…
The passenger on the zamboni is stuffed, and not with popcorn.
The goalie, dedicated soul that he is, remains in his stance while surrounded by teddy bears. Fans throw new teddy bears on the ice after the Green Bay Gamblers (the home team!) score their first goal. They (the bears, not the Gamblers) get donated to a local children’s hospital after the game.
Volunteers gather the bears, bag them up, and get them ready for donation to a local children’s hospital. The Gamblers won, 3-2, and the organization collected over 5,000 bears.
>How totally fun is that? Great snaps!
>That’s gotta disrupt the game! But what a cool idea!!! I wonder which other sports could get into this? Not water polo, I’m guessing.
>WOW thats a really cool thing to do!!
>Wow, now that is a lot of bears and all for a great cause! Sweet!
>That poor Zamboni driver! (I love Zamboni drivers!)
>Wow. That is really cool! What a great idea! Your pictures are terrific!
