    I attended this again this year (3rd time out of the last 4). They generally get 17000 fans or so for a major junior game and collect about 25,000 teddies. In the stands its bedlam-- If you are lower down you immediately do your toss and then turn to start catching and throwing as fast as you can as bears rain down from above

    Nice Flubber. And what a fun and great way to get toys to kids during the holiday season.

    I go for my kids-- They get a kick out of tossing the bears all over the place and seeing the pickups being filled with massive piles of bears-- Its promoted heavily at their school and there are usually a few hundred students there all in a block of seats so they have a good time with their schoolmates.

    Seems like the people sitting up close are getting pelted with teddy bears.

    Wow. I thought it would end like two minutes before it actually did lol. It looks like everyone there threw at least 2 or 3.

    The spectator netting against flying pucks means that all the bears from people behind the nets have to be tossed up to where the netting ends. IT takes a while.

    WE always bring more bears than we have people
