CARTER COUNTY, Tenn - It's a four-on-four (technically, eight-on-eight) charity basketball game for jackasses. No name calling here, it's a donkey basketball game for charity.

The riders are certainly the stars of the sporting event, but the donkeys are the ones in control. The only real rule? Players must be holding their donkey to have the ball.

One of the riders, Tristan Clawson, said, “There’s no controlling the donkeys. They go where they want to go. They’ve got a mind of their own.”

The real winners aren't on the court, however. The non-profit TLC Community Center gets the money that is raised to help feed children in need.
