After a relaxing day at our company picnic, I made the decision to join some guys at one of our local churches for some pickup basketball. It was a fun night, but I am coming to the realization that I really shouldn't be trying to keep up with guys who are at least 20 years my junior. I believe that I am in good shape for a 45 year old. However, there's a reason why guys my age do not play in the nba. After playing for about almost two hours last night, I am feeling it in my joints today. The bad thing was that it forced me to shorten up my run this morning.
My wife is great to lovingly remind me that I am not 25 years old anymore. Now it looks like my body has decided to chime in with her wisdom.
Does anyone know a group of guys in central Missouri that like to get together and play some hoops and are a little more experienced (i.e. more my own age), yet still enjoy playing Naismith's timeless game?
