Among the many varied traditions of peoples all over the world, throwing 23,096 stuffed animals onto a hockey rink has go to be one of the two or three dumbest. But it looks pretty impressive.

16,844 fans of the Calgary Hitmen tossed the animals as part of a fund raiser for children's charities on Sunday, as they have for the past 17 years. Don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure I saw a kid get tossed down there.
