11-year-old Boy Nate Smith Makes $50,000 Shot at Halftime of Charity Hockey Game
You know those halftime contests at hockey and basketball games where participants try to make a shot from midcourt? Yeah, well an 11-year-old boy actually made his shot from center ice last week during a charity hockey game at Shattuck St. Mary’s, Minnesota. KARE-TV has the story:
The kid sends a 3″ puck through a three-and-a-half inch wide slot from 89 feet away and he might not get to keep the prize. Can you believe that? Those insurance companies always find a way to get out of the prize. The kid won the contest. I don’t care if his brother’s name was called — give him the $50,000 prize!
But seriously, how awesome was that? The shot easily fits in with the amazing plays we’ve shown here at LBS. It probably was more impressive than this half-court shot a fan made at a Sacramento Kings game in Frebruary.
