    That was just weird to me. I don't think I would have allowed either of my kids to participate in that match. Practice, yes. Match? No. I would like to know what the venue was. If it was a legit tournament then it is a little rediculous. I mean, if the kid's dad would have laid him on his back instead of his stomach then he would have pinned himself.

    I used to lifeguard for the special olympics. I also got to see how those kids enyoyed getting to do stuff. But they were capable enough not to drown when you put them in the water. I think this kids parents should be looking more toward those baseball legues where you can play in a wheelchair. It is more geared toward CP kids.

    So did the cerebral palsy kid practice sprawls and half nelsons with the rest of the wrestling team? What'd he do when they got to sprints? The kid is apparently able minded, so let's get him into something he can excel at. Like a wheel chair and half baked ideas about light speed and time.

    I think when the "Make A Wish" foundation needs somebody to kick dying little kids in the face, you'll be the goto guy.

    I think the thread title would be more accurate if the quotation marks were around the words 'wrestling match' instead of 'Throws'.

    Every kid wants to feel like part of something larger. It's human nature. I think that this is awesome. For the kid with cerebral palsy, it demonstrates some brass putting himself out there. And the other kid showed some serious empathy. As a general rule, I don't like other people's children, but seeing stuff like this reminds me that there are exceptions.

    Second thought - maybe I would let my son participate. He could crossface the **** out of the kid and give him the DX crotch chop after the easy W.

    Seriously though - I'm all for being nice to the chirruns. I just don't think this is nice. I think it's disrespectful to everyone involved to put them into this fucked up spectacle.

    You have no clue what I meant do you? It has to do with going to get old posts, that fit their current complaint, that show some hypocrisy. Not posting my opinion. This is why you continue to get ****.

    To Tom and Azatdawn, you realize you are arguing two different points?

    Interesting responses to this thread. I myself, cannot imagine, were I in the position of having a child of similar abilities, NOT allowing my kid to do this, if it's something he wanted to try. You all telling me if you had a kid with those abilities asking to try, and telling you he wants to try wrestling, and you'd look him in the eyes and say "sorry, you can't do that, you're not able to do that." Do you punish your able bodied children if they don't win the little league game too? At the age of 12 some schools don't even let sports teams win or lose (which is admittedly ridiculous).

    It doesn't seem set up to me as a Hallmark moment. The Dad said in the article his son just wants to do what other kids are doing, so they got him involved, and recorded his match, like any parent would record of photo their kids, then he put on FB and it took off from there (this is the internet, that's how these things work). I have to imagine I'd encourage this kind of thing myself, especially something with a team atmosphere as I can only imagine the kid doesn't often get opportunities to experience something like that.
