10,000 per day.  That's about how many of us leading-edge Baby Boomers, born in 1946, are turning 70.  There are now many stories showing up about us in the media, such as here and here and here.
I will not repeat all of the many interesting facts and figures that are reported in those articles, but rather will simply note that many of us turning 70 hardly feel a day over 69!!  More seriously, one characteristic of us boomers is that many of us are still quite active - biking, running, hiking, skiing and of course basketball!!!  Played nearly 2 hours of 5 on 5 full court last night at the Nederland Community Center, and can still walk today!  Contrary to what Arn Willems insinuated in the previous basketball post, my teammates and I won all of the games [I should probably mention that one of our fellows was a 6'4" forty-something fellow that played college ball] :-)  Below are some fellows that I would like to meet - maybe in our 70-and-over league!
