Ducks Off the Ice by Adam Brady
The (Ice) Bucket List
If you've been anywhere near Facebook or Twitter in the past few months, you're aware of the concept of the Ice Bucket Challenge. In case you haven't, it's a social media initiative in which people challenge friends, colleagues or others to record video of themselves dumping a bucket of ice water over their heads. If they don't accept and complete the challenge within 24 hours, they are asked to donate to the ALS Association or a charity of their choice.

Of course, they can always dump the water over their heads and donate to ALS research if they so choose. The ALS Association is a national non-profit fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease through global research and providing assistance and care for people with ALS.

Admirably, a number of Ducks have gotten into the spirit, dousing themselves in ice water and challenging teammates and other NHLers to do the same. Not surprisingly, Ben Lovejoy had probably the best one, sitting on a dock and getting his baby daughter Lila involved, with warm water poured only over her leg (she cried anyway). You can't really hear what he says at the end, but ...



Ryan Getzlaf, Emerson Etem, Cam Fowler, new Duck Dany Heatley and others have taken part. Take a look at all of the videos here.

The Ducks staff, led by Executive Vice President/COO Tim Ryan, got into the spirit today too (see below), after being challenged by the staff of the Nashville Predators. The Ducks and Honda Center are also making a donation to the ALS Association. 


If you'd like to get involved, simply post your own video on your Facebook or Twitter and use the hashtag #IceBucketChallenge.
