Great job Utica- another successful event. But before anyone in attendance pats themselves on the back I have a simple question?

What kid anywhere wants a teddy bear for Christmas? It's not 1950. Why not change this event so that kids are actually getting something they will use- rather than a bunch of crappy stuffed animals left over from the Deerfield field days.

Maybe it looks cool and is a great photo op- But let's face it. No kid is gonna be happy with a cheap stuffed animal.

You are right! When they go to school and a their neighbors are talking about what they got for Christmas I bet they jump right up and brag about their used teddy bear.--/

I applaud the thought. Help those less fortunate. My point is simply that stuffed animals are lame. This is more about the promotion and the fun for the fans than it is about kids needing a toy!

All hockey teams around the world have teddy bear tosses. That's how We/Utica came about the idea. My question is,... how do they keep the stuffed animals from molding after bagging them wet? I did see many throw onto the ice in a plastic bag. It should be noted to do this because mold is bad. P.S. I am white and my first toy came from a hockey game. A stuffed animal means a lot to a kid that has nothing. But a moldy one will cause more problems. PEACE

Little africans use them as practice "white girls" so when they grow up to big africans they can do the job right.

Its kinda racist too, should be the teddy bear/can of sardine toss. Africans love their sardines.

Just saying. I think people like the spectacle of throwing the bears- But in reality it's a lame gift.

I get your point. It's better than nothing for a needy child. But my kids have never asked for a cheap generic stuffed animal. There are a lot of better gifts for 5-10 bucks that a kid may enjoy.

Screw crows anyway they shouldnt get shit. White people need to wake up. Their animals generation after generation. You mean to tell me they cant go to a dollar store and buy 40 toys for their 8 kids for 40 bucks. Yes they can but are just that dum and buy crack instead. Just imagine if you and I recieved 500 dollars a month to shop (ebt card) and sold drugs, got rent paid and heap. My kids would have a better holiday then they do now. White people need to stop babying blacks. They have been here 200 years now 200. Bosnians been here 15 years and are doctors, cops and business owners. And guess what skin pigment is not and excuse to say we don't like them its because they live and act like Animals so you can say i am racist against that way of life if you want.

You exhibit symptoms of depression, hate, jealousy and a large dose of attention deficit syndrome.
In addition, you have no idea of which you speak.
Happy Holidays:)

Why are you idiots making this a black/white thing! It was awesome that so many people brought not just one, but many stuffed animals. You haters always turn something good into a three-ring circus! Grow up!
