Has anyone seen this documentary? It has been sitting in our basement for about a month, because – I am loathe to say – I have turned into one of those people who lets that little red packet just sit there and sit there and sit there for weeks on end because I never find the time to watch it.
But last night we finally sat down to watch Murderball. And we were mesmerized.
These guys are amazing. And fantastic. And mean. And funny. And raunchy. And inspirational.
It’s the story of the United States quadriplegic rugby team (a game coined “Murderball” by the Canadians who invented it back in the 70s), the rivalry with the Canadians and their American coach… and the struggle that all quadriplegics go through.
They talk about their stories, their sex lives and even how they “do more now in a chair than they ever did when they were able-bodied.”
Truly amazing. Go rent it.
