    The rules of the contest were simple: The winning $10 raffle ticket drawn at random earned one lucky contestant the right to shoot a puck through a tiny target from half a rink away for $50,000.But what if it was your twin brother who took the shot? And what if he actually made it? Would you take the money?Those questions arose after 11-year-old Nate Smith strode onto the ice at halftime and made the 89-foot shot, stunning even the NHL players in attendance at the "Shattuck Vs. The World" charity game last week in Faribault, Minn., about an hour south of the Twin Cities."I probably couldn't have done it," said Kyle Okposo of the New York Islanders, according to the Faribault Daily News. "There's maybe five of us in (the Shattuck locker room) who could have done it. That's a tough shot."But as remarkable as the feat was -- the target was only half an inch wider than the puck itself, according to the Faribault Daily News -- the drama was just beginning.
