Minor League Hockey Team Invites Fans to Throw Underwear on the Ice…for Charity

After several years of hockey teams around North America running promotions in which fans bring stuffed animals to the game and throw them all on the ice after the first goal, it seems the demand for stuffed animals has run out. Thus, when the Bakersfield (California) Condors of the ECHL wanted to run a promotion, they had to think a bit and ask around for something that local charity organizations really needed.

As it turns out, the answer was underwear.

Seriously. “In talking with local non-profits, it is quite clear that there is a need of undergarments for the economically challenged,” explained Team President Matthew Riley. “We thought this would be a fun way to bring attention to that fact, and hopefully raise some significant donations…Teddy Bear Toss is obviously a great tradition, so why not start another one?”

Of course, before any perverts out there start booking travel arrangements, you should know that the team is only accepting new underwear. Apparently the “economically challenged” would rather go commando than wear somebody else’s used drawers, which is pretty understandable.

Also, they didn’t state this explicitly, but one can only assume they want normal, everyday underwear and not the novelty kind. So don’t run out and buy anything edible or crotchless. Just go to Target and get a six-pack of Fruit of the Looms.
