Main Question or Discussion Point

Just been watching a bit of them this morning after I came home from school and I have to say they are as exciting to watch (if not more so) than the normal Olympics.

The paralympic judo that was on this morning was far better than the judo at the Olympics. There was no walking round in circles wasting time and some of the moves where pretty damned impressive (Ben Quilter's (sp?) hip throw for the bronxe medal qualifier was superb)

I've just heard that the paralympics aren't being shown on TV in the USA, instead there will be a summary show after the event is finished :bugeye: whaaaaaaaa??

I would have loved to watch wheelchair rugby. Shame it isn't being shown.

The blind football is awesome, it makes rooney and his other 100 thousand pounds a week friends look like amateurs.

Also why did NBC say they aren't showing the games?
