I wish ESPN would spend more time on stories like the original and the followup than 4 hours of Dwight Howard talk and another 4 of Stephen A Smith and Skip Bayless yelling at each other.

I hope the people running the new FOX Sports channel have seen all the criticism the last couple years of ESPN and go in a different direction.

We live in the richest, most powerful nation in the history of humanity. NO ONE inside our borders should have to live like those boys did. It should make anyone ashamed.

I usually make fun of the Syrupy Tom Rinaldi Feature but this one was particularly good, the follow-up and how the producer on the original (who left ESPN several years ago) stuck with them was really great.

A guy with no legs wrestling? He has a clear competitive advantage.

Yeah, but what if it was an ass-kicking contest?

Guess it all depends how far up his legs got amputated.  Hard to kick the ass of someone with no ass.

/Result is a tie, in the most depressing/entertaining match of the day.

Is it considered bad form to finish him with a Leg Drop?

I generally hate these idiotic Tom Rinaldi pieces, as the majority of them are focused on a rich white kid who was able to overcome a bee-sting with a three day regiment of Benadryl, who comes back and smacks a first inning double in a game his team loses 10-3.

But this one was really well done.  All three protagonists in the story are incredibly likable, good people, and you really, really want to root for each of them, those two boys especially. I'm glad I watched that video.

If this guy wins Gold in 2016, the other guy is still talking to him, and Lisa still working with them then I smell a Disney movie.
