There’s a reason why they are called jackasses (aka donkeys) and those who took part in the charity Donkey Basketball game at Floyd County High School Thursday night found out why.

The recalcitrant donkeys proved more than a match for those who tried to ride and play basketball at the same time as a combo team of Floyd Moose Lodge members and FCHS class of 2009 alumni took the three-game elimination tournament by beating Floyd County Sheriff’s Department Deputies 2-0 in the final. An FCHS faculty team was eliminated in the second round.

Jackasses or not, everyone had a good time, even those who went home nursing bruises.  More photos in next week’s Floyd Press.
