I bet you've never even seen 23,000 teddy bears...(or at very least I hope there was a special occasion for it if you have!) So here's a clip of this year's 16th Annual Teddy Bear Toss hockey game at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada (December 12, 2010). Red Deer Rebels vs. Calgary Hitmen.

This was just the first goal in the first period by the Calgary Hitmen! (You should have seen what happened for the second goal... I'm not going to ruin it, but let's just say "Real Bears!")

Here's the clip:

There are several Teddy Bear Tosses around North America this time of year. The Teddy's are collected and donated to charities and hospitals all over the regions where they are collected. This is just one of many of these events this season, but it was certainly a big one. We might be known as an apathetic and laid back country...but we know how to do charity right!
Cheers to those Wacky Canadians and the things they'll do for a good cause!
