Down syndrome team player.

My older girls who played basketball for the first time this year, will appreciate this story about a basketball player with Down syndrome, who saved the game.
"Patrick made sure his opportunity counted, scoring a 3-pointer with just his second shot. Then, with one minute left in the game, fans stood and chanted Patrick's name. The coach put him back in the game and he delivered -- sinking another three-pointer at the buzzer.
Patrick's teammates swarmed around him, and carried him off the court."
OK moms, were you crying when you read that? I sure was!
