Highlights from PETCO's annual Hamster Ball Derby. http://www.petco.com
Well, today is our annual hamster ball derby here in Poway. We're looking to have around twenty participants today, and if you can see behind me we have our track set up and it's a real exciting time for our small-animal customers. She did it last year when she was a little baby, and I found out about it when we came to buy her treats and bedding. It's heats of four, so we'll set it up, and it's just like our college basketball tournament bracket. So the heat of four, whoever wins will move on to a bracket, and then they'll play the winner of heat number two, and then so on and so on, and then we'll actually get our champion. Well, I didn't know what to expect with it, and when my son's hamster started winning, I was really excited. He won the hamster ball derby. What did you do to practice? We let him roll around the house. I won second place and I really hoped that she would at least take a place, and I'm glad that she did. I love working this event, especially seeing all the smiles on the kids faces. It's funny, and it's just fun.
