USA Wins Murderball Gold

New, 3 comments

The United States wheelchair rugby team beat the Australian team yesterday at the Paralympic Games in Beijing.

Murderball has gotta be really empowering for the participants. For one thing, it's a sport that able bodied people watch and think, "that looks like a lot of fun", because, to be perfectly honest, it looks like bumper cars. Is that bad to say? For another thing, it really must be fun to use a wheelchair, which can be seen as something confining, as an instrument of destruction, or at the very least, organized chaos.
