'I can't hear, I can't see, but I can skate' -- worship this dude!
Nice story in the Orange County Register this past week on Alex Patterson, who at 80 is still playing ice hockey with guys many decades younger. Alex is blind in one eye and has hearing problems -- but watch the video. The dude can still motor around the rink.
My favorite part of the video: he brags about making a good pass, albeit one that his teammate couldn't snag. More people should worry about making good passes!
BTW, I know the annual Senior World Tournament in Santa Rosa at the rink built by Peanuts creator Charles Schultz has a 70-and-over division, as well as many other divisions for players 40 and over.
