Rick Mercer tries wheelchair basketball

Several weeks ago, Seeker sent me a video of a sledge hockey team and I think we can all agree how inspiring it is to see people with disabilities play sports.

Here is a video from the Rick Mercer Report that features Canada's wheelchair basketball team - the 2-time Paralympic Champions. AND the three-point man is from my home province (the Maritimes gets all the best athletes. Sid, Brad Richards, Russ Howard, and now this guy!)

Rick Mercer > Jon Stewart

Maybe later I'll post a video of Rick Mercer diving with Alexandre Despatie. Absolutely the best YouTube video ever.
