Make Way For Murderball

Thanks to Chris Lynch for the pointer to this film that just debuted at Sundance:

A film about quadriplegics who play full-contact rugby in Mad Max-style wheelchairs – overcoming unimaginable obstacles to compete in the Paralympic Games in Athens, Greece.

Here’s an early review from Colorado, and I can’t be more stoked about his movie. Not only am I an ex-college rugger, I also came into contact with a team of these guys while I was working for a non-profit health charity in the early 1990s. Trust me, they’re as nasty as advertised. Get ready for some fun.

    I saw this flick last weekend and it was extreme to the max! I have a whole new appreciation for disabled sports and really want to check out this sport in person. You can see a video of the Wheelchair Rugby and lots more at http://www.quadrugby.com I’ll be seeing this one again when it hits theaters this summer!
