With $30,000 on the line could you walk onto the ice of a packed college arena in your UGG boots and shoot a puck 3/4 the length of the ice into an opening only slightly bigger than the puck?

The odds are probably staggeringly low, but Morgan Ward did it during an intermission of Friday night's Minnesota State-Mankato men's hockey game. 

According to the Star Tribune, it was the first time MSU had ever held the challenge.
