The “Craziest Show On Earth” comes to town on February 24, 7:00 p.m., when it’s men vs. donkeys at Susquehanna Community High School Gym. The opposing team will be juniors vs. seniors in a game sponsored by the Susquehanna Fire Department.
The donkeys will be stubborn, as usual – sometimes a little contrary – and to put it mildly, sometimes a bit uncooperative. The rules of the game are that you can only shoot while sitting on the donkey and recover loose balls while holding on to the donkey. This is where the fun comes in. About the time the player goes to shoot, the donkey decides he has been on his back too long. The local “cowboy” will then show his skill as a rodeo star. Trying to move the donkey two or three inches when going after a loose ball, can sometimes seem like a city block. It will be a real challenge to the local men of strength.
There will be thrills, spills, laughs and more laughs. The local drug stores will sell their liniment stocks the day after the game. It’s fun for members of the entire family. It’s the basketball game of the year, where everyone goes home laughing. You won’t want to miss it!
Plan now to buy your tickets in advance at Gifts & More, Main Street, Susquehanna; (570) 853–3057.
