Classic commentary on the Channel Ten news from the coach of the Australian volleyball team tonight regarding the deaf side.

Words to the effect of,
“They’re just as competitive as able bodied athletes”

How is a deaf athlete not able bodied? I know where he’s coming from but it’s still a pretty shonky thing to say.

And bonus points to the people behind the Comedy Channel who five minutes later played the episode of Family Guy where the deaf team miss the opening of the “Special Games” because they can’t hear their alarm. It’s all coming together.
