Featured Video: Donkey basketball at Wilmington Area High

NEW CASTLE — Donkey basketball.

Bringing the ball up the court is the easy part.

Getting your donkey to come? Well not, so much.

On Wednesday night, Wilmington Area High hosted its 9th annual Donkey Basketball game.

Believe it or not, the contest actually went into overtime, with the Camo team winning it all with a final score of 6-4.

Fans saw plenty of scoop shots during the action, but those were mainly from the players cleaning up after their animals.

Rickie Cutlip, the man who drives the truck full of donkeys, said that “the only animals getting hurt here are the two-legged ones riding the donkeys.”

And he should know. The donkeys weigh more than 500 pounds each!

Watch the video below to see Wednesday night’s outrageous activities.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
