Men versus Donkeys. That’s right – men versus donkeys. The donkey basketball game scheduled at PCHS will pit the faculty against talented citizens of Pocahontas in a game that will be filled with “laffs,” thrills, spills and fun galore. We say “men versus donkeys,” because players on both teams will have their problems moving the stubborn donkeys toward the basket. They’ll have trouble staying on the donkeys, and this will bring much laughter to the fans… New cowboy stars will be born during the game…
Playing against the faculty will be Bob Mann, Jim Reep, Gene Simmons, Dr. Ernie Shaw, Charles Young, Tom Campbell and Phillip Cain. These men offered themselves as martyrs to the cause…
