Thousands of projectiles will be launched into the air at Friday’s Vancouver Giants game, though avid hockey fans needn’t worry about wearing hard hats.

On my own personal note, I have personally attended the Teddy toss for the past 3 years; seeing thousands of bears flying through the air at a single time brings tears of joy to anyones eyes (including myself) and the overall good moods and enthusiasm that come from the participants is amazing. It is inexpensive (~18.00 max a ticket) and totally worth while. Spread the word peple!
