(ESPN)   8th grader with Down's Syndrome gets in the game and drains a couple 3-pointers right in the defender's eye. Speaking of which... theres something in mine   (frontrow.espn.go.com) divider line 60

I love these stories. getting to document and report on these is about as an awesome a job as I could imagine. right up there with "official puppy player-with"

So ESPN is going to replace its Tebow coverage with "retard does thing" coverage?

I guess I'm ok with that.

You gotta block that shot, kid.

/good on ESPN for what they did

You might accidentally touch the Down's kid, and everybody knows that's how you get infected.

Why Would I Read the Article: So ESPN is going to replace its Tebow coverage with "retard does thing" coverage?

I guess I'm ok with that.


There's a difference?

If this kid had been playing regularly, that would be a worthy story, not a pitying "oh, let him on the floor for a couple of minutes HEY HE GOT A COUPLE OF THREES TWEET ESPN!" move.

"Replace?!" What did you think those Tebow stories were, in essence?

That was pretty cool. He wasn't good enough to play all year, obviously, but the team let him stick around to make everyone's life a little better. And to let him play at the end probably made his whole middle school career.

It's good people are getting used to retarded kids. Their lives suck enough as it is, they don't need to be shunned.

That's like, potato points! Way to go kid!

/am I the only one who thinks the coach is a douche for waiting until the last game to let him play?
 
2013-01-24 03:13:38 PM
Great job kid.  Six points, that's like eleventy potato!

No fair, you guessed.  I at least took the time to work out the actual sum.

Dude travelled before the shot-wave it off. Turnover!

Good... I wanted to be snarky in the ESPN message boards yesterday when i read this, but it would've been really out of place. Leave it to Fark to restore proper balance.

I noticed that all the people that whine about every amazing NBA play being a traveling violation aren't saying anything about this, which actually was. If the kid had Down's and was black, though, man, they'd be all over it.

Would have been even better if he had shot them into the right hoop.

Careful, if you reach any further you might hurt something.

Reminds me of when the coach would put me in at the end of all the blowouts.

Brap get in there and show them what you got!

Or when it came to little league, every time I came to bat... got the "bunt" sign.  Heh.

It was actually the "take" sign.

I can top that.

I wasn't even in Little League but in its bastard cousin "Stars of Tommorow:, which I'm sure some guy dreamed up in the back of his mobile home to get together Natty Light money.   I got on base ONCE the whole season when I was HIT BY A PITCH!    Granted we didn't play a lot of games but my point is I may be the most shamefully inept baseball player in the history of American youth.
 
2013-01-24 05:16:47 PM
Awesome. He finished the game with:

Potato points
Potato rebounds (potato offensive)
Potato assists
Potato steals

It was a quadruple potato

Well, the syndrome is named for Dr. Down, so it is commonly called Down's syndrome, per common grammatical rules. Now, Downs syndrome is right out, though.

That's great.  Did your league keep stats?  Back in the 80s, before "every kid's a winner".... we did.  My average was like .100.

Yep, both are correct.  Down or Down's.  Not "Downs" though.

What is the phrase "drains a couple 3 pointers" a euphemism for exactly?

Yeah, I started reading this story thinking it was a repeat of the one in your link. The fact that both of the kinds are from Rochester (although now I see it's a different Rochester) managed to confuse me.
