Donkey Basketball in Terrell, Texas

Saturday night the Terrell ISD PTO Council put on a donkey basketball show at the Terrell High School campus. If you have never seen a game of donkey basketball, I suggest you check it out. There was a lot of laughing and a lot of grimices when players fell of or got thrown off their donkeys. Click on each picture for a larger image.

Jump ball?


To score you had to be on the donkey. A clown was on site with a
shovel for any mess, and cheerleaders were on hand to root the
players on.


Not everyone was able to stay on their donkey


Terrell Tribune sports reporter Cliff Gibson tries to beg or maybe
bribe his donkey to move.

I have to ask: How did y'all keep the donkeys from messing up and tearing up the gym floor?

What happens when they have to go to the bathroom? I have NEVER heard of this before. Could this be a Texas thing? what a hoot.

How very odd. Wouldn't they damage the wooden court?

Oh Gosh, I feel my hips, knees, elbows, legs, breaking at the thought of falling off a donkey on a gym floor!

Way to go, Jim! Thanks for this series of fun photos. I've never seen donkey basketball in person, but I sure would like to do it some day.

Thanks for stopping by Portland Oregon Daily Photo.

We had a local donkey basketball game canceled recently because of outrage from people who said it was unfair to the donkeys.
