Lucky Teens Headed To Final Four On Mickey D’s Dime


Here’s a bit of pre-Final Four happiness. Remember Patrick Thibodeau, the Down Syndrome kid who played, and scored, for his high school basketball team? Well, he’ll be at the Final Four and you won’t.

Thibodeau and another Maine teen with a similar story (autistic team manager, scored 9 points in his team’s final game) have been sent to Detroit by a bunch of McDonald’s owners to see the Final Four up close and personal. Maybe it’s their way of making amends for the McLobster. Whatever the reason, it’s yet another reason for us to be jealous of kids with Down Syndrome and autism; they get all the lucky breaks.
