Perhaps returning the favor Broadway did for tennis earlier this year, two-time Paralympic Quad Doubles Gold Medalist David Wagner and three-time Paralympic Gold Medalist Esther Vergeer met the cast of Spider-man: Turn off The Dark last night.

Suffice to say Ram and Ehrlich’s celebration is exactly how the Frenchmen would’ve done it.
