All things must be fair

So, if you go vacationing and head to the hotel pool, it might be closed. Seems a federal law went into effect requiring pools to have wheelchair lifts.

You know, I don’t notice a lot of wheelchair bound people playing basketball. Someone should get on that.

    Great, now fill is going to get expensive due to all the pools that are going to be getting filled in.

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just hire a burly dude to pick them up and throw them in?

    This country is circling the toilet and it has handicapped access.

    I wonder if those guys that play Murder Ball need an elevator.

    Are you kidding? Wheelchair basketball is huge — probably the most popular “handicapped” sport (if you don’t count horse racing).

    But they don’t have dunk-lifts.

    I don’t see them in the NBA. And it must be fair!

    I’m guessing most wheelchair users call ahead and adjust their expectations accordingly. No pool lift? I’ll get shitfaced and chase skirts instead!

    Too busy playing Murderball.

    Do they have to also have one for the ocean in case someone wants to go scuba diving?

    Srsly, Unk, wheelchair basketball is not a good example: it is actually quite popular, requires NO mods to a regulation basketball court, and as near as I can tell, players purchase their own equipment. Even the basket height remains the same.

    It is pretty much the opposite of the swimming pool foolishness.

  11. SayUncle Says:

    can they dunk?

  12. Ohio Shawn Says:

    No they cant dunk, but murderball is pretty awesome to watch.

  13. Roberta X Says:

    Dunking. Ruined. The. Game.

    +1 @13. And. Pat RULES, ’nuff said.

    Unk, wheelchair basketball is hugely popular and requires no changes to regulation courts. It’s one of the few games that able-bodied and disabled people can play on an equal footing (so to speak)– as long as everyone’s in a chair. No we can’t dunk, but neither can most women players. Will go one-on-one with you sometime (you can borrow one of my chairs) if you’re so inclined.

    And FWIW we’uns do not consider ourselves *bound* to our chairs. We aren’t tied in and can get out as needed. We use them for mobility same as you use you legs.
