Barenaked Ladies Play Hockey For Charity

Last week, the Barenaked Ladies took a break from touring to suit up in full hockey gear and equipment to play a charity exhibition game of hockey in Montreal. The event, which helped raise $10,000, was held to benefit a charity group called Club Optimiste St. Lazare. I haven’t been able to find anything on them so far, and what I found was written in French, so I hope any of you could help us out with this bit of detail.

Anyway, the Ladies are apparently huge hockey fans, so the chance to play the game for a good cause was a great thrill for them.

“We played Sault Ste. Marie last night and we arrived in Montreal at 11:30 a.m.,” said a visibly-tired Tyler Stewart. “We spent a lot of that time planning strategy and set plays that we’re famous for,” he said, tongue planted firmly in his cheek.

The Ladies, long known for their sense of humour, turned serious when discussing the game — which took a big hunk out the band’s day off — a rare treat when on tour.

“It’s a great thing to do, though. We love playing hockey and it’s a great treat for us to get to play for a good cause. That’s why we came,” he said.

Now that’s a good way to spend their day off. The band’s not only known for charity work, but also for their support for the environment. Here’s another interview wherein they talk about their new album and their efforts to spread the word about environmental issues.

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
