DEAF WATCHING OR NOT WATCHING SPORTS
    Many deaf people love to watch sports, the same
as hearing people.
    But do these deaf fans really watch the football
game or a baseball game at a stadium? Many of them
talk to each other with ASL and do not really watch
the action closely.
    Yes, hearing fans talk a lot with each other,
but their eyes are on the field and their ears
listen to friends’ voices. The deaf fans cannot
watch ASL hands and the action on the field at the
same time!

PARACHUTE JUMP BY A FAMOUS DEAF BOXER
    Dummy Mahan, a famous deaf boxer during 1930’s,
wanted to become a hearing person. Some people told
him that if he jumped from an airplane on a parachute
he could become a hearing person. They felt that change
of air pressure would help remove deafness.
    The deaf boxer was not a smart person; he could not
read well, and could not understand the instructions
on how to use the parachute after jumping.
    As a result, he fell to his death!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
In Vermont, we do not have a SSP service.
I have to use the agency that provides transportation service which
utilizes volunteer drivers.
Of course, they don’t even know ASL!
The other day I needed a ride for a medical appointment.
After my appointment I waited outside for my ride so that I could return
home.
Often the drivers will drive up and open their passenger window and shout
out my name.
Their assignment form mentions that I am DeafBlind!  What is wrong with
this picture?
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
