I will follow some events showed on TV. For now all I know is that paralympic athlete Fabrizio Macchi got suspended for his contacts with Dr "doping" Michele Ferrari; I wonder if there is ANY sport in which there is no doping at all at this level...
Surprised after all their London fluff, NBC's only doing four one hour specials and a 90 minute highlight show. Oh wait, this is NBC.
I was pretty bummed about that. I follow the US Paralympics on twitter and so I'll probably watch the videos & youtubes they put up. They put the whole opening ceremony up just recently (they got Stephen Hawking!). I don't want to put it up since it is 5 hours and I don't know how people's computers and such will react to that, but their twitter name is @USParalympics.
When I was 6 years old, he made "The Pass" and instantly become my favorite driver. His accident in 2001 was heart-wrenching for me, and his return to Lausitz in 2003, his WTCC career and now the Paralympics gets me misty-eyed. No matter what he's doing, it's magic. His is one of the most amazing stories I've ever heard. If I had to produce one person in the world to exemplify the best parts of humanity, Zanardi would probably be that person.
Quit is something he's never considered, and can't is a word not in his vocabulary. Rumors in the IndyCar world are circulating that he's going to run the Indy 500 next year. if he wants to, he will; anything Alex Zanardi puts his mind to he works hard to accomplish.
