Total strangers have invited me to play wheelchair basketball more times than I can actually remember. There are several issues with this. First, I am not in a wheelchair, which apparently is not really an issue they will provide me with one. Next, I am horrible at sports. The people I have encountered recruiting for such a sport do not like to take no for an answer and typically I would cave to the pressure. This is something I have no problem saying no too. One recruiting attempt stands out in my mind. My friend had brought me to the Hawks game. We were walking along talking and minding our own business when we got stopped. I gave all my arguments as to why wheelchair basketball is not for me and they just kept pressing me. In the end they gave me their phone number and insisted I call them. My friend could not get over that experience and we laughed about it all night. Every once in a while we talk about it and laugh. If you see me on the street, save yourself the time, I have no interest in playing wheelchair basketball. Thank you for thinking of me though.
