Blue deals with humorous and serious sides of disorder

Josh Blue pokes fun at cerebral palsy for laughs, but he’s actually pretty serious about the neurological disorder he was born with.

Blue is active on the U.S. Paralympic Soccer Team and competed in the Paralympic Games in Athens. According to his bio at, Blue refuses to bow to any of the challenges that come with living with cerebral palsy.

“I realize that people are going to stare,” he jokes on his Web site, “so I want to give them something to stare at.”
