The “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” has really taken on a life of its own as millions of dollars have been raised and much attention focused on fighting the awful ailment that is ALS. Athletes of every sport, musicians, models and actors have taken the challenge some really creative ways. From Carrie Underwood to LeBron James, countless big names have answered the challenge that all started with former Boston College baseball star Peter Frates. The latest and one of the most noteworthy came from Hollywood Bad Boy Charlie Sheen.
Rather than water and ice, Sheen, in typical Charlie Sheen fashion, poured $10,000 over his head and pledged that amount to ALS.
Sheen then issued the same challenge to former costars and producers, all of whom he has had “bad blood” with in the past. The cherry on top of the donation and humorous display by Sheen is that he was answering the challenge from Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller.
Miller, who is married to Sheen’s “Anger Management” co-star Noureen DeWulf, challenged Sheen last week. If Miller can be as good at stopping pucks as he was at getting Sheen to help such a great cause, the Canucks might just challenge for a playoff spot.
With all due respect to the former Rick Vaughn, while his donation will surely do great things to combat ALS, free agent winger Paul Bissonnette won the ice bucket challenge once and for all.
No word yet if “BizNasty” and “Ma-Sheen” will be combining their amazing ingenuity on joint projects in the future. We can only hope.
