The Jackie Moon special.... Whose got $100,000???
Last night in Orlando, at an ECHL Solar Bears hockey game, a man from the crowd was called out to make a shot that most NHL players probably wouldn’t sink on one attempt. But what did this Thursday night hero do? He sunk this shot from what is about 160 feet into this 1/2 a foot wide frame at the bottom of the goal mouth. (Shown below)
What did he win you might ask? $100,000……
Yep you didn’t misread that, 100 grand was awarded to Nick Giovanelli. I can’t imagine the Solar Bears are just going to be able to pull 100k out of their asses. Considering I looked it up and glass seats to their games are $45…. This make me flash back to the scene in Semi-Pro where Jackie Moon has the hippy guy shoot the “moon shot” conked out of his mind. Great night for this guy not so much the Solar Bears, other than the fact they did go on to win the game in OT.
PS I really wanna know if gets the money or not like I'm really concerned for him, and like the ref says in the Jackie Moon clip, does the beer company really pay for this? That sucks for them if they have to...
