What does it look like when 23,000 teddy bears go flying onto the ice at a hockey game? Kinda like that picture above and the video below. Up in Calgary (that’s in Canada, Jimbo), the Calgary Hitmen, who are a major junior hockey team (they really take their hockey seriously in the Great White North!), hold an annual event to collect stuffed animals for charity. So on Sunday, the Hitmen (who are owned by former WWF star Brett “The Hitman” Hart) asked their 16,000 plus fans in attendance to join in once again. The deal is, they wait for the first goal to be scored and then they throw all the stuffed animals onto the ice at once:

That was pretty cool, but this video taken by a fan sitting right on the glass is maybe even better:

If all that giving to kids that need it doesn’t get you feeling a little less Grinch-like, I don’t know what will…
