  • Worlds number one....SWEET!!

    David Wagner

    I was in a tournament, the Cajun Classic in Baton Rouge, LA.  We had a rain delay.  I thought I would be a cocky guy and challenge Wags to a game of table tennis.  Well if I would have known that he was a National Table Tennis champion I would have never put my foot in my mouth.  But I took my beating and thought to myself, geez he’s just good at everything.  If he took up curling he would be great at that too. 

    David Wagner is the very best Wheelchair Tennis Quad Player in the world.  More than that he is a great guy and WOW he actually watched me play.  This was a treat and I am very excited to introduce you to David Wagner.  You will end up being as big of a fan as I am of him after you hear this.

    Worlds number one

  • One more for today

    Posted by Jason Miller

    There are commercials that run that are like ho hum...(yawn).  If this doesn't make you want to get out and do something, then you need to be examined by a doctor right away.  By the way before we get to the latest Paralympic commercial that I LOVE.  Let me tell you that yet today we will have an interview with Kurt Greniger and the great career he continues yet today.  So make sure you check back later for that but without further a due here is my latest favorite Paralympic commercial.

  • Great athlete and person

    There are those guys and gals in life that when you meet them you think one thing.  However, after you meet them your opinion changes greatly.  Well I had that experience with my guest today.  There are few things in this world of sport that humble me, but Kurt Greniger is one of those.  He got hurt at a young age.  He didn't let that keep him down, in fact the only thing that went down was one of the best wheelchair athletes was born.  Through all of his athletic greatness and accomplishments he continues to be a great person and still, as you will hear, has a hard time talking about himself.  He showed his greatest moment in sport when the wheelchair softball team he is on won a National Championship - not too soon before that weekend he and his family lost their son and brother.  There is not a more humble man I know and I am privileged to call him my friend.  Please take a listen to my interview with Kurt Greniger.

      

    Hall of Famer Kurt Greniger

  • He trains the best

    Posted by Jason Miller

     

    We usually talk to those who play disabled sports.  But I thought we would change it up.  Here is a guy who trains those athletes who perform at a collegiate and international level.  He is so very important to the success of the program at UW Whitewater but will never admit it.  I am so pleased to introduce you to Mike Lenser.

    He already has accomplished so much and needs to prove nothing to anyone.  But my friend Eric Barber keeps impressing and showing folks there is nothing that keeps him from reaching his goals.  He is the only guy I know that has beat Michael Jordan in a game of one on one.  I am pleased to introduce to you Eric Barber.
