haven't gotten to the end yet but my brother had downs and he wasn't nearly as high functioning

EDIT: definitely just started crying when they raised his hand. my brother would have loved that more than anything

Well compare him to anyone with down's that you just see when you're out and about... Very few of them seem to be at the level of cognitive ability as Garrett.

Though I did see a guy with down's at Carrabba's once that ordered for the whole table. True story.

Most of the people with Down's that I've met have been relatively high functioning. Garrett seems like he's towards the top definitely though.

Yeah that's what I'd assume.

Definitely.

People often talk down to sports, but then stuff like this shows how valuable they can be. There was also a story during the NCAA tournament this weekend about one of the players and his relationship with a little girl who had a massive tumor that moved me.

Yea, I love these kinds of stories. Anyone remember the high school kid with downs (or was it autism?) who got put in at the end of the teams last basketball game and drained like seven 3's? That story was awesome. Also, a lot of those Wake A Wish things that ESPN does.

I love playing sports because it's a great way to connect with people. You can build some awesome friendships. I mean, a lot of sports practically force people to connect by the nature of the game. Plus, I find them really fun.

I really can't stand the whole, "it's only for meatheads" mentality that populates this forum. You don't have to be a fan to know that that is stupid, and it completely ignores all the good they can do like this story.
