That was outstanding and inspirational, Ron, and it brought back some wonderful memories of my late Father-in-law who played since he was 13 up until a month before his passing of 75.

Thanks for sharing

cool story about your Father in law, that's awesome.

Glad you liked it, a friend sent it to me, so had to share. Looking at that guy, you'd think he'd have trouble being coordinated then he goes and does that! Stereotype negative!

I also like how doesn't just play it, but you can tell by the look on his face at about 25 second mark, he's 'into it' too. That's what counts, not just playing but he STILL enjoys it

I have seen that before and it's quite inspiring as it's on youtube. It may have been posted on here though as Im not sure.
