Donkey Basketball Turns Players Into Asses

PORTLAND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Basketball players are making asses of themselves.

Donkey Sports, Inc. is an organization that sponsors donkey basketball games, in which teams of five players shoot hoops against one another while riding bucking burros.

Company owner Bruce Wick says the sport is a good chance for people to look like an ass since there is no strategy to the game.

Wick explains, “I see people strategizing all the time, but nothing will ever work. You’re pretty much at the donkey’s mercy, which is what makes the game fun.”

But burro b-ballers have to make sure not to anger the animals.

Wick says, “Donkeys can get angry. If you don’t treat the donkeys right, they will get unhappy and come at you. Every once in a while we’ll have some guy who wants to be a jerk, but we make them leave.”
