Today is the official start of the National Senior Games in Cleveland! The basketball competition will not start until next week. There will be over 10,000 amazing athletes participating in the games - all over the age of 50! In addition to our favorite "grannies", the Fabulous 70s, there will be lots of women with similar stories competing this year. Another senior women's basketball team is the Connecticut High Fives starring Sheila McKenna. This team plays the Fab 70s in Granny's Got Game, so you can see Sheila in action in the film. Here is an article and video about her from a few years ago in the Boston Globe. Check it out.
This year the Connecticut High Fives are in the 70+ age division. I'll be cheering them on. Never too old!
