    I'll be playing in the Special Olympics district basketball tournament on February 17th. We had a game last night so I got some practice in. But just like last year, the teams will be rough and tough. So it's not going to be easy.

    Good luck to you and your team, Tyler. You've done this before, right?

    That's right I have. For about 10-11 years now. And just last March, my team got our third consecutive gold medal in the state tournament.

    Thanks. Even if I don't get gold, the challenge is what makes it all worth it.

    Thanks Mandy. I've been doing Special Olympics since I was about eight years old.

    My friend Eric has known people with Downs Syndrome his whole life. His brother's life-long friend has a sister with Downs.
