We’ve seen hats, teddy bears and sea creatures fly from the stands onto the ice after a goal. Yes, we’ve seen underwear before, too: Remember when Taylor Hall scored his “bra trick”?
But Bakersfield Condors fans weren’t content to throw a single undergarment. Watch as they litter the ice at Sunday’s ECHL game against the Las Vegas Wranglers with nearly 6,000 pieces of clothing:

Undie Sunday brought a rain of underwear, socks, bras, diapers and socks down onto the ice. Nearly 6,000 clothing items were collected, including 1,096 pairs of socks, 2,773 pair of underwear, 1,747 diapers and 55 bras, among other items. The items will be donated to the Mission at Kern County and the Kern County Network for Children.
