What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Before you get all of on a snit, this isn’t about being handicapped, or about curling. Rather it is about a combination that should never be. Some things were made to go together, like pizza and beer. Conversely, some things weren’t, like full frontal nudity and Betty White. Wheelchairs and curling are the latter.
Specifically, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with either on its own, but together, they form something unholy. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the importance of remaining active, and due to having had several reconstructive leg surgeries in my life, I know what being confined to a wheelchair is like.
But this combination is just a monstrous disservice to both; it completely removes any of the skill from curling while finding a way to make being wheelchair-bound even less active. Honestly, I get more physical activity sleeping off a drunk than you could get here, and even worse, the dude in the picture above ISN’T EVEN HOLDING A BEER! Isn’t curling without beer a federal offense in Canada? He could strap a whole cooler to his chair and do this right; if you are going to adapt, do it in a positive way.
