Just Pray for a Hat Trick

As we are busy lighting the third candle on this year’s Hanukkah menorah, a brilliant fan event and PR move comes out of – believe it or not – the National Hockey League.

In what Yahoo! Sports calls “simply one of the greatest fan giveaways in sports history,” the Florida Panthers are handing out a special team yarmulke to every fan at this Tuesday’s home game.

December 7 is Jewish Heritage Night at BankAtlantic Center, and is a celebration of Hanukkah, on ice.

Presented by none other than The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co., the celebration will also have a giant menorah lighting, Jewish music, Kosher food available throughout the game, and post-game, on-ice slap shots. It should be quite a party.
