Leave it to Chicago radio to come up with unique promotional events, this time at the expense of the state's troubled governor.Some passersby on Michigan Avenue braved the cold temperatures and had some fun throwing shoes at a life-size cut-out of Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

The event was held just outside WGN Radio's Tribune Tower Showcase studio. The promotion was dubbed "Pay to Play?Throw a Shoe at Blagojevich."

Participants had to make a donation to take part. All proceeds are being donated to the Neediest Kids Fund.
