So with the Olympics going on, I have been thinking about sports for Dakin. Granted, he's probably not going to be on the local soccer team, but that's ok. Know why? Because there's...
Yep, that's right. Soccer in a power chair. Just for your information, the USA Power Soccer Team are the reigning World Cup champs. So cool, right?
All you need is a little bumper thing on the bottom of the chair and a little bigger ball and you're good to go. Well, I guess you also need a team, of which there is a major paucity in our area, but fear not. We'll just start our own. I won't tell you the name, though, because it's too cool and someone will steal it.
Ok, maybe I will. I can't resist. The East Texas Rolling Thunder. I know, right? AWESOME. Let it be known that if someone steals our name, they suck. But I digress.
Anyhoo, once we get Dakin's power chair, we are going to work on soccer. I think he's going to have a ball (tee hee) pushing around a soccer ball in his chair. You can even go to power soccer camp. Awesome!
We also have a winter sport picked out. Turns out that the only paralympic sport in chairs is curling. I found some neat pics, but I can't upload them for some reason, so check them out!!
So not only will he be a genius hedge fund manager, he will be an Olympian and a soccer star.
Ok, so I know there was a lot of 'awesome' in this post, but I'm excited!
