Considered a disabled sport?

Most people with a physical or mobility disability will frown on taking up a sport, mainly due to a fear that they wont be able to do it, they will look silly or that they won’t be able to compete at a reasonable level. As a disabled person myself I can relate to all of these.

But get over those barriers and you may well find the reward far greater than you realised, firstly remember that you are not alone, every disabled person that has taken up a social activity or sport felt the same on day one

There are tons of disabled clubs dedicated to enjoying a range of sports, hobbies etc and most (if not all) will be there to cater for your needs.

A few disabled sports (click the link) to consider are horse riding, swimming, archery, basket ball and all offer great benefits, socially and of course physically to help improve your mobility as well as being great for rehabilitation. I’m not here to preach, just to show you some of the disabled sports out there waiting to be enjoyed.

One bright day in the middle of the night

Just had to share this with you.

One bright day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back they faced one another,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
One was blind and the other couldn't see,
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came and shot the two dead boys.
A paralyzed donkey walking by,
Kicked the copper in the eye,
Sent him through a nine inch wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all.
(If you don't believe this lie is true,
Ask the blind man -- he saw it too!)
