They will find something in the wording that prevents them from having to give her the truck or whatever. They always do. Then they will settle for something like a free hot dog. With chilli, but she has to pay for the cheese.

No, they will pay out the vehicle...but it's usually a weird one, colors, options, ect.
Dealership has insurance to cover this promotion.

Can we get her to tutor mezaros? He can't even hit the net from the opponents blue line!

Carter would kill at this.

Just cover the hole with a thin paper emblem of the opposing team. He used to put it right in the middle of the goalie all the time.

However, if he took the shot from about 5 feet out he'd miss it.

That's truly amazing.

One year I was selected to take a $10,000 shot at a Phantoms game from center ice. I can tell you that from center ice you cannot see the tiny hole that can literally fit 1 puck. While this one is different, the one that I did, the hole looks bigger (maybe 3-4 pucks), but there is clear plexiglass that makes the actual 1 1/2 puck wide hole. I know this because I hit that piece dead on and it knocked the piece off. When Phlex came back with the puck to give to me, he said I literally missed the center hole by less than an inch.

That's pretty cool man. But for a 59 year-old, overweight woman who can barely stand on the ice (who they make wear a helmet in case she falls) to make a shot from the far blue line there really is no comparison. As the article states, pro hockey players are highly unlikely to make that shot. But she makes it with awful posture and slams her stick on the ice! That's why this is basically a miracle.
