Today I spent the morning at the park helping with the finals for the Special Olympics. There was bocce ball and soccer going on - what a blast! I'm not a big sports fan, but the special olympics are so different. There were 3 soccer teams and I think the 3rd place team cheered louder than the other two when they got their ribbons. When one of the players screwed up and made a goal for the other team, no one got on his case or made him feel bad. My favorite was when one of the players standing along the middle line was having problems tying his shoe - one of the defenders over by the goalie ran over and helped him get it tied before running back to her position. The sportsmanship and support is unbelievable. If you ever get a chance to help at a Special Olympics event, I highly recommend you do so. You'll have a wonderful time.
