Fun: March Madness for Women over 40 Who Play Basketball, Don't Keep Score

I loved this story from the Washington Post, about  a basketball league for women in their 40s through 60s that began in 1991.

"It's the game in its purest form. We love this game," Heather Stevens-Kittner of Arlington said as she sat in a chair waiting to get back on the court. "We love playing this game. We don't care who wins. We don't care who scores. When someone on the other team makes a nice play, we cheer."

Stay in the sweet spot, ladies.
