Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Thanks to Marie for reminding me of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association championship. This blog was written about wheelchair basketball competition before, but it is hard, as Marie points out, to keep track of the games because the media attention is so slight.

Of course, I would suggest that the teams bellow at their school SIDs to help get the word out. Not to mention the NWBA itself. Squeak, oh wheeled ones, squeak, and some of us will gladly pay attention.

Anyhoo, congrats go out to Alabama, who earned their first National Championship, defeating perennial powerhouse Illinois. Find out more about the Alabama program here and the Illini program here.

Note to NWBA - provide LINKS! Some of the teams have hard to find web pages.
