The older generation

I saw this piece from WBUR, one of Boston's NPR affiliates, and thought I would post it as a kind of tribute to all the older athletic women in my life with whom I have had the privilege and pleasure of cycling, and playing softball, tennis, and golf with and as well as just hangin' with.

And because when I was at the Gay Games in Chicago a few years ago I watched some of the 60+ women's b-ball tournament and was really inspired. So I think more people should know that older women are active and actively creating their own sporting opportunities. Many may not have benefited directly from Title IX, but they certainly are advocating on their own and others' behalf in the spirit of Title IX.
