“That which is called firmness in a king is called obstinacy in a donkey”

John Erskine (American Educator, Novelist and Musician. 1879-1951)

TIME:  8:32 PM
PLACE:  High School
SUBJECT:  Donkey Basketball

My niece’s high school held it’s annual Donkey Basketball Game this evening.  The senior girls take on the senior boys in a fundraiser for the Student Council and yearbook.  Girls make one point if they hit the rim of the basket and two points for making a basket.  Boys score two points only if it goes in.  Several teachers also participated.  Last year, the fundraiser brought in $1,500 for each group.  Many years ago, when I was a senior in high school, I attempted to ride a donkey and play basketball – let me tell you, it is not easy.
