The Tri-City Americans have always found fun ways to utilize the slippery ice at the Toyota Center.

In the past couple of seasons,  the Giant Hampster Ball races have been one of the favorite events staged during itermissions.  Two lucky fans get to climb inside the giant hampster ball, like the boy in the bubble, and race each other across the ice for prizes!

The other night the Americans marked the return in 2014 of the races,  Watch our video of the brief but hilarious mayhem.

For more fun like this, make sure to take in an Americans game soon!    Call the Am's office at (509)-736-0606 for ticket information!   And listen in on Newstalk 870 KFLD.
