This Week In Sports with Calder Hodge! (E2)

If you're like us, you're CRAVING SPORTS….. ANY KIND OF SPORTS!!!

So we created a show to help you get your fix - filled with great moments in sports, your favorite players and teams, and even super fun trivia... all hosted by our friend and a budding young athlete himself, destined to be part of sports history!

Welcome to This Week in Sports with Calder Hodge!


We all want to get back to live sports, but in the meantime, get fantastic reminders of what happened in sports history during the week of May 30th - June 5th! In this episode, Calder looks back at great moments and little known facts including the winning driver in the first Indianapolis 500, the "lightning fast" world record exploits by the world's fastest human, and the only pitcher in franchise history to throw a no-hitter for the New York Mets!

Host Calder Hodge is like most teenage kids growing up in Texas - he loves sports, especially football. What's different about Calder is that he was born without tibia bones and plays football with two prosthetic legs! He shared the quarterback position on the JV team last season, is known to be driven and a fiery leader, and is already working with his coaches to prepare for the upcoming season. While there are other football players in the country with prosthetic legs, he is the first double amputee QB to have his very own Sports Show!

Non-Profit Matches Veterans with Therapy Dogs for Life Changing Support

** In celebration of "National Pets For Vets Day", we wanted to share this heart warming story about how a service dog is helping a Vet with PTSD **

Brett Simon was a veteran K9 police officer who went on to work as a contractor for the Department of the Army as a bomb dog handler. However, after serving two tours in Iraq, he returned home suffering from PTSD.

Led by his Mom, Shari Duval, who had worked for veteran's charities near their home in Jacksonville Florida, Brett's family undertook two years of research to find a solution to help Brett and others with this condition.

Their research focused on canine assistance for PTSD. Ultimately, they started a non-profit organization. K9s For Warriors, dedicated to providing service dogs to warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of their military service (post 9/11).

The Lonesome Boy And The Blonde Haired Angel

When Alex Fischetti thinks back to when he was 9, he realizes how he was different from other kids. "Some people can say that you are odd," he remembers. "Some people can say that you are a little out there." Diagnosed back then with Asperger's Syndrome, a condition that made it hard for him look people in the eye and interact normally, Alex missed many parties and other social events and often felt isolated. But if you look at him today, you see a completely different person.

Now 27, Alex has learned to deal with his condition with the help of some very special people along the way. He works a regular job, has written a personal memoir of his experiences, and has now become the self-described "social butterfly" of Ridgefield, Connecticut.
