A Century of Playing Sports
You may recall a recent post about aging, in which I recounted chasing "Roger" around the neighborhood on my Big Wheel when he would visit his grandparents, who lived across the street. Well, wouldn't you know, his grandfather, also Roger, though we call him Pepe, is featured today on Boston.com. He's 100-years old and still playing tennis as often as he can. Pretty amazing, eh?
