    "Honestly, when Dax was born, I was angry with God," Richard Crum said. "How can you send me a one-handed boy when you know my sons are going to be athletes?

    That quote makes me sick.

    Nice quote pops. Dick. He's just pissed he can't gravy train junior.

    Would he be as pissed if they were going to be, say, surgeons?

    Yeah, but he also says "But he's taught me that you can do anything," he said. "He's changed my life in so many ways."

    No matter what he said or believed for but a moment, good has come from it.

    I read this with a teacher's mind.

    I just want to hand a copy of it to every kid who whines about life not being fair and how they had excuses about why they couldn't do well.

    Dad sounds like a prick, but in the "drill sergeant/train you for life" kind of way.
