Super Bowl XL Pregame: Disabled Kids Play Football

Posted by Edwin Soto Categories: Championship, Super Bowl, NFL,

In an attempt to tug on America’s heart strings, ABC and Disney put on a feature about disabled children playing football.  I am trying really hard not to call it a “puff piece” and seem unsympathetic to the disabled.  It’s possible that they put this “story” on to get people to think that ABC’s coverage of Super Bowl appeals to the average American lifestyle.  I’m sure this is just a ploy to assure parents that there won’t be any wardrobe malfunctions this year.  The question on my mind the entire time was “Who’s the audience for this?” Surely all the beer drinking bar men don’t want to see this.  Leave the tear jerking for Barbara Walters and 20/20.

To be honest i think i'm going for the seahawks. cuz i'm getting sick of the Big Ben oh hes soo great hype. I hope polumanu gets an INT and takes it to the house cuz his hair is awesome. archie manning vs Big Ben's dad fight during halftime would be dope.
