Last Friday I wrote about 11 year old Nick Smith of Owatonna making a shot from 89 feet at celebrity hockey game at Shattuck St. Mary’s in Faribault. For his efforts he won $50,000.
There is one small problem.
It wasn’t Nick that made the shot. It was his twin brother Nate. When Nick’s name was drawn, he was nowhere to be found, so Nate stepped in.
The decision whether to award the $50,000 to Nate Smith now lies in the hands of the insurance company that was used for the contest. I’d hate to have to make that call.
