The Special Hockey International tournament is an event for the developmentally challenged – this year it took place in Kitchner, Ontario. You can check out their website here, where they describe the event as such:

The annual SHI tournament brings together teams from across North America and Europe once a year for a major gathering, attracting more than 70 teams. This tournament traditionally alternates between a Canadian and American City, but has also been hosted in London, England. The SHI tournament is not a traditional tournament, however. There are no elimination rounds, no one team is crowned champion. In our eyes they are all champions. Every team plays 4 games and every player on every team plays equally.

The goal above from the event is amazing. Just pure patience, earnest goodness and love. Hope you enjoyed it – there’s some more background on it here.
