For a family that just got stiffed out of $50,000, the Smith family seemed pretty chipper today when national TV asked them to get up early in Faribault.
One of the Smith kids made an impossible hockey shot in a contest for $50,000, but the contest underwriters wouldn’t pay the money because the a twin brother subbed for the one whose name was drawn.
“Being honest and truthful, it turns out good in the end,” Kim Smith, the boys’ mother said.
“Some people wouldn’t tell the truth, so it’s kind of cool that we did,” one of the lads told NBC’s Today Show.
The underwriters are donating $20,000 to youth hockey programs in the area, instead.
