The uplifting documentary, which was a crowd favorite at Sundance, follows Mark Zupan, 30, as he leads the U.S. wheelchair rugby team to the 2004 Athens Paralympics. Zupan (left) was a soccer star at Florida Atlantic when he was paralyzed in an auto accident in 1993. A year later he discovered murderball--a form of rugby played by men in heavy wheelchairs. Zupan, who has been on the U.S. national team since 1996, says the idea behind the jarring four-on-four sport is basically "kill the guy with the ball."
Summer Redneck Games
Will Jeff Foxworthy light the torch? More than 10,000 spectators are expected in tiny East Dublin, Ga. (pop. 2,574), where events include bobbing for pigs' feet, the mud-pit belly flop and a mullet contest. There are no gold medals for the winners, just trophies made from crushed Bud Light cans.
