I've tried to follow the paralympics but I've failed dismally. C4 is OK but the constant ads drive me (even further) nuts.

I've never seen wheelchair rugby bit I have heard it's a sensational sport.

So I'll watch.

But although I shouldn't say this for personal or PC reasons, the paralymics don't grab me like I'd like to think morally they should. They are 'good' in the social sense. But I can't get impassioned.

Same here if I'm honest, maybe if it had been on the beeb I would have felt differently towards it.

The coverage has been poor at best, which is a shame.

If you’ve never seen Murderball you’re in for a treat, I love it and would love to have a go at it, but that probably wouldn’t be PC.

Although this is not on the Beeb, anyone know if there is an 'iplayer' type catchup available ? My son & I would like to see it.

At the end of the third quarter, USA lead Great Britain 41-32. The highlight of the quarter was when GB's Aaron Phipps was sent to 'the box' to serve a one-minute penalty after he launched himself into Will Groulx who tried to cross the line. The American ended up on the floor."
