Donkey Basketball Takes Over PA

Donkey Basketball is growing in popularity, and sweeping the state of Pennsylvania at the current time. Why? Who knows, just be glad its not being played at your alma mater. The game is played by hoopsters who ride bareback atop live donkeys, with baseball batting helmets tied tight to their chins, as the picture clearly illustrates. Any self respect a player may have once had for themselves, must be forfeited prior to getting on top of the mules, according to league rules.

From the Sunbury Daily Item earlier this month:

"For the second year in a row, donkeys will be heeing and hawing their way around the basketball court as 24 Shikellamy seniors play 24 employees of The Daily Item and radio station 94 KX in donkey basketball. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Shikellamy High School...Upon hearing about the game, Bucknell University men’s basketball coach Pat Flannery admitted donkey basketball has 'got to be pretty hard.' "

Agreed coach. That would have to be pretty hard. Chalk this up as a good reason to be from Ohio, why, because we don't play that here.

These are the same weirdos that root for the Steelers. Coincidence? I think not.

Ohio is just sad they didn't think of it first. From a state that honors wooly worms, I don't think Ohio has any room to throw rocks.
