Happy Hocktober!

To celebrate the opening of the NHL season, I give you:

Bears Playing Hockey

Living in the modern world, we don't have a good idea of how dexterous bears are, and how capable they are on two legs. I've seen old film of them riding bikes and doing all sorts of difficult tricks. Trained bears were part of Russian circus tradition until very recently, although they're very rare now (for good reasons). This looks to be a mid- to late 20th century European show.

Not many skill players on this squad, but if you make it to about 1:50, there's a fight! Close enough for me.
