I have been actively involved as a volunteer for Special Olypics International since they brought their world games to Idaho back in 2009.

I made some great friends in that Organization, especially Edward "Eddie" Barbanell who played the role of Billy in the movie The Ringer which was actually endorsed by the Special Olympics and Tim Shriver was the executive producer.

To learn more, just use Google to search like this:  Google "The Ringer movie"

If you liked that movie and are in the LA area, a week from today, they will be doing a screening of that movie followed by a Ringer Re-union.  Eddie will be there along with Tim Shriver, Johnny Knoxville, and several others are expected to be there.  The Farrely brothers that produced the movie are sponsoring the event.

Speaking of Google, I need to give them a shout out for making Special Olympics International their background graphic today. 

 

 

ESPN is covering the week long event so please check it out on tv or online if you can't be there to show your support in person.

If you don't have ESPN, consider a one week free test of https://www.sling.com/programming  it will require a credit card, but you can cancel after a week if you don't find enough value in it for just $20 a month.
