……………………..

elite deaf auto racer

Greg Gunderson

Sprint Car racing

South Dakota

apparently he has retired from racing as there are no updates for
the past several years on his racing performances.

As a rising senior at Gallaudet way back in the early 1990’s, he
won the state sprint car racing championship, and paid off the
Gallaudet tuition with the prize money.

Remembering the movie – The Replacements

part of a posting today

Here it out: Falco did all of this — starting with a close loss to Detroit
and a heroic win against Dallas — with practically no viable offensive
threat. A makeshift offensive line with bodyguards and a sumo wrestler in
Jumbo Fumiko. A running back in Walter Cochran (Troy Winbush) with one
good knee. A solid, but deaf tight end in Brian Murphy (David Denman). A
wide receiver in Clifford Franklin (Orlando Jones) who needed Sitckum to
catch the ball.

note:
the dialogue in the movie between two coaches said that Brian Murphy
played at Gallaudet and that he would have been a NFL 1st draft choice
if not for his deafness.

British pro soccer history

Cupset and sent off for being deaf – the night Brighton shocked the Foxes

part of posting

Throughout the history of Brighton and Hove Albion, there have been plenty
of weird and wonderful red cards. But none has been more bizarre than the
time that Jimmy Case got sent off for Brighton away at Leicester City in
the League Cup for being deaf.

Even in his prime, Case had struggled with deafness.

Case of course couldn’t hear him thanks to a combination of the noise of
the crowd and lack of hearing aid, and so he was shown a second yellow for
dissent.

Case’s team lost 1-0 in that big game

Random DeafSports thoughts

The actor that played the deaf tight end in the Replacements
movie was a fake-deaf actor.

Why wasn’t a past Gallaudet tight end cast for that role?
