Special Thursday Thirteen

"10-11 DAYS OF HOCKEY, 39 GUYS, SELFLESS ACT TO RAISE MONEY FOR PEDIATRIC CANCER RESEARCH---COME AND SUPPORT THEM! OR YOU CAN ALSO MAKE A DONATION ONLINE www.worldslongestgame.com."

A friend of my family is playing in this for the third time. Fingers crossed the weather holds out for them! Its supposed to get COLD (-20/-30) for the start of the game and Saturday.


Thirteen Pictures & Facts from the last Worlds Longest Game





I tried for 13 pictures, but blogger is being a p.i.t.a and won't let me upload more

so...

6. The last game they played 240 straight hours of hockey, equivalent of an NHL season

7. Since they played for the Guinness World Record Book, once on the property they were not allowed to leave for any reason

8. Only one guy dropped out due to injury

9 - 13 coming soon

Wow, intense. Did they raise much money? I'll bet they had fun.

I think last game they raised over 100K. The goal this time is 500K :)

Yikes! Here's hoping the weather isn't too brutal for the game ~ and that blogger let's you upload the rest of your pics!

Happy T13!

240 HOURS? Yikes! I can't think of anything I'd do for 240 hours. What a great thing. I hope they break the bank!
