Murderballesque Activities At Abilities Expo In Anaheim

Is it just me, or does this commercial make the Anaheim Abilites Expo look kind of cool?

I mean, a dude in a wheelchair flips off a half pipe!

The event starts today at 11:30 a.m. and runs through Sunday. It's intended for anyone in the "disabled community," including caregivers, vendors and people with disabilities. But... it's free, and there's a "wheelchair lacrosse" demonstration. Sounds a little bit like the totally crazy sport of wheelchair rugby that starred in 2005's acclaimed Murderball documentary. I don't know why you wouldn't want to witness that in person, even if you're not in the market for a new mobility-enhancement device.

Plus: wheelchair fencing, soccer, dancing and tennis demonstrations are on the schedule. Could be a recession-proof way to spend an afternoon. Details here.
