SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Shock are on a roll - of sod, that is.  Members of the team joined up with the Spokane Children's Miracle Network on Thursday to get their hands dirty for a good cause.

Instead of tacking Rattlers, Sharks or Battle Wings - just to name a few - Shock players rolled out new grass around this year's Miracle House. The new house in the Eagle Ridge subdivision will be put up for sale later this year, with all the proceeds benefiting local children.

"During the season it feels great because we're so focused on football," said head coach Rob Keefe, who also helped spruce up the house. "It's a good time to step away from football, and it's a good time to reflect on why, exactly, we're doing this - especially for all the people who are coming to see us and watch us play. It's the least we can do, I think, to help the community."

The house the Shock players were landscaping is the third Miracle House built in Eagle Ridge. The new house is expected to be finished by mid-August.
