Iowa's Granny Ballers Rock!!

At the insistence of my little friend Katie Sherwin, I am posting this article about a Granny Basketball League that's winning hearts in the Midwest. It's a six-on-six basketball league for "older" women (the oldest member is 81 years old), and from what I can tell they're playing the kind of basketball my grandmother played when she was a girl--making it somewhat of a history lesson for those who are keeping score. You can learn more about the league by visiting Frankly, the best part about it to me are the uniforms: bloomers and stripey tights!!! Plus, the rules clearly state that neither running nor jumping are allowed. I KNEW there was a sport out there for me!
