The drug store is reported to be running low on liniment as hearty, local residents prepare to ride real, live donkeys while playing basketball. All team players have been training extensively for this event. Team coaches want to be ready, physically and mentally. Rumor has it that teams have had aprofessional rodeo bronc rider come and give a few tips to team players. Donkey Sports, Inc. of Entiat, Washington will be providing the donkeys and the officials. Donkey Sports officials will be strictly enforcing the rules against players abusing the donkeys in any way. However, there are no such rules applied to the donkeys abusing the riders.

You’ll smile; you’ll laugh, at what seems to be an odd pairing, but is guaranteed to bring an evening full of fun and laughter for the whole family. You can meet the donkeys up close and personal during halftime. There will even be a “Kiss the Donkey” contest featuring some of your favorite school faculty and administrators.
