Special Olympics

The local Special Olympics softball team (go Arlington Eagles!) here is getting ready for a regional competition on Saturday.
I'm wondering if Megan still participates in the Special Olympics? She handled Puppet beautifully!
All the best,

The election (and congratulations!)

Congratulations for winning the Webby Awards!I think The Specials is the best reality show I have seen. Have a great time at the award Ceremony.

You are so famous now that you are on Wikipedia!

Did you all vote in the election on 6th May? Are you happy that Brighton has the first ever MP from the Green Party?

Love From Claire.

P.S. I am looking forward to hearing about your trip to the USA

hi claire

You have a lovely name! wow we are on wikipedia. i wonder who did that? i voted conservative... not very good about the green party wish it was a conservative.
love lewis

Thank you Lewis.

Thank you Lewis!
I like your name too, I have never met anyone who's first name is Lewis but it is my best friend's surname.

If you are conservative, you must be pleased David Cameron is the Prime Minister. I voted lib dem.

I think David Cameron will be a good advocate for people with learning disabilities because of his son Ivan. It is very sad that he died.

Love Claire

The Title of The Show

Hello from Chicago, IL!

My friend in my program sent me an episode to watch, and I've been hooked ever since! I love the series, and I think it was long over-due :)

I have a question about the title of the show (The Specials). Who came up with the title? What does 'the specials' mean to you?

A fan,
Elizabeth M.

The Specials

Hi Elizabeth,

Everyone gone for Christmas now !

Hilly is with us of course. Thought I would add to Hilly's comment.

The name the specials was one of a few of the names that we had an idea of. The guys all chose which one they wanted. It was 'the specials'

The idea behind it is reclaiming the word and stopping the phrase being sometimes used in a negative way. We think it works.

From all of us here we want to say thankyou for watching. The show really has raised the profile of learning disabilities in the UK. Without people like yourself watching that wouldnt happen.

Well till season two bye for now.

Have a Merry Christmas.

Dafydd and Carol

The Specials
