If the autistic boy was really any good at making basketballs he would have still been playing in all the games after that and he'd be in the NBA by now.

You are really a scum. How can you rip on a kid with a serious medical problem? You must know or are related to RacistBarnSlutScumPigDumbA$$. What the hell is wrong with you?

What's the matter with all you name-calling people? As great as that one shot was, it WAS a once in a life time thing for Jason McElwain and it would had been once in a life time for ANYone. When teammates first passed the ball to McElwain he attempted a three-point shot and missed. This was the first time he ever got to actually play and that's what should make parents of kids with autism angry.

I say give that vaccine damaged guy props. The fact he can take part at all with vaccine-caused brain injury is positive. Most vaccine damaged autistics can do little but suffer, but Pharma just doesn't care. It only cares about $$$$$$

Maybe the women's soccer team should find an autistic girl to take Abby Wombat's place and then they might actually win?

Off topic. This has nothing to do with vaccines and if it does, then Jason McElwain famous hoop shot couldn't had been done had it not been for a vaccine.
Thanks.

Why have you lost all hope of Abby ever winning a soccer game too?
They only tied in todays game. I think a team of autistic girls could have a better chance.

Man you people are sick. Here is a kid with a serious medical problem, gets into a game, makes some great plays, has a smile a mile long, and you people rip on him. Man, that's really cold. Give him credit for even trying to play. The odds were stacked against him to do good, but he did do good, he did very good. Hopefully he will remember it for the rest of his life.

Autistic girls would actually fit in well on the Women's soccer team, cause I believe the majority of autistic kids turn out to be gay and lesbian.

It's Neurological, not serious medical.
Credit for trying to play? He has played hoops since little and was able to make those 3 pt shots in practice alot. He was team manager and went to all the practices and practiced himself. He is not Physically disabled.
BTW - the other coach was in on it too. once the game was out of hand, he was inserted and the other team was told by their coach not to guard him too closely or try to block his shots.
He's been able to meet Dumbya Bush, hang with the Indy Colts, go to the ESPYs, and work at Weggies.

Ask him about the Indy-Buffalo game 2 years ago, where he was on the Colts sidelines flipping off the Bills fans in Rich Stadium.

I hate to tell you, many with autism can do something very well, it's their focus and basketball was this kids thing he could do very well. Autism didn't prevent him from making that shot or making that shot; autism may had prevented him from playing on a 'team' sport. That one shot, that one day wont carry that kid for the rest of his life, either and it's almost really sad that everyone makes autism the focus for that kid, than the cool shot he as a kid made.

I'm not going to read anything or even click on those stupid links. I'm not interested.
All I know is that an Autistic girl could play better soccer then Abby Wambat.

No matter what a person posts, someone has to find something wrong with it. He made more than one shot, I think it was more like 6 or 7. And even without being guarded closely he made 6 or 7 3 point shots. As far as flipping off the Bills fans, that I don't know anything about. But I doknow Bills fans, and they cry about everything and anything.
