Murderball: is a new documentary about Quad Rugby, a brutal sport played in wheelchairs on a regulation basketball court. It's gotten rave reviews from many different critics, and today on Fresh Air, Terry Gross interviewed director Dana Adam Shapiro and Murderball bigshot Mark Zupan. The NPR link also has the trailer to the movie and a video clip of Zupan in action.

Thanks for the link Ufez. That looks sick. I'll be looking for that movie.

I can't wait to see this movie. The Paralympics are inspirational, and kind of neat. This, on the other hand, is just flat-out ass-kicking awesome. I have no pity for these guys. In fact, I'm a little scared of them.

I just watched the Real Sports segment on this. Sheesh, that looks pretty hardcore. Honestly, if I ever wound up paralyzed, I would be all over this game. It looks like a ton of fun.
