Josh Yohe tweeted someone stole his sock monkey from the press box.

They looked hilarious from the upper deck raining out onto the ice :)


my local ECHL team does a Teddy Bear Toss night where as soon as the home team scores the first goal you throw a stuffed animal onto the ice. it is absolutely hysterical every time. sadly one year they were shut out and we had to just toss them after the game. and yes, the bears are donated to a local children's hospital.

I think every team that participates in the Teddy Bear Toss is shutout at least once. Its like a right of passage. Happend to us here.

I was in Vegas for New Years and went to a Wranglers game (ECHL team) and they had fake snow inside the arena at different times and called it their Winter Classic. They even had a bunch of parodies about the NHL being on strike. We had a good time and it was amazing how much creativity some of these minor league teams put into the entertainment value.

They just shipped all the monkeys and hats to Kenya. Price is now 300 bucks.

Of course someone is seeing the demand and starting to sell them.

Of course that one doesn't look as cool as the one given out at the game.

Yes, one of the South Atlantic League baseball teams had a free vasectomy promotion a few years ago. :pop:

The lower the league, the weirder the promotions get.

A word of warning: I seem to recall that Lt. Dish was very eager to get her hands on a sock monkey and, judging from the picture she posted, she isn’t afraid of a knock-down-drag-out fight to get one.
