Teddy Bear toss .....

HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) The Hershey Bears annual teddy bear toss broke a record with 45,650 stuffed animals donated.

The collection is more than 10,000 stuffed animals than last year.

The Hershey Bears scored early in the first period and play was stopped moments later when people started throwing stuffed animals on the ice.

The game was delayed nearly 40 minutes while the donations were collected.

The stuffed animals will be donated to 40 charities in the area.

That’s pretty cool.

I am not a sports guy by any stretch but I have always thought hockey fans were among the best. I used to go to a game or two a year in Nashville with my dad and the support for whatever charity event they had going on always seemed overwhelming.

Can you imagine if they held a canned-food drive for the starving?

Yeah, that's classic.
