Sports has always been a social and athletic endeavor for me.  The biggest thing is that I don’t want to—as maybe a lot of folks know, when you’re disabled, a lot of folks end up letting that consume them, and being sedentary, and being inactive.  I’ve always wanted to be as active as possible, and I use sports now as an outlet for me to stay active and stay in shape.  I love to eat, I really love to eat.  So, I use sports as a means to give me the excuse to being able to eat, because it raises my basal metabolic rate, so I can eat more and still stay fit.  And, I also use sports as a means to socialize with others, and network with other folks that are adaptive athletes like myself.
