Senior Games Embrace Life!

Audio: 

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!

Missouri State Senior Games, an off-shoot of Missouri Show Me Games, is filled with positive people who do not let their age define their joy of participation. People in this area are fortunate to have venues close to them in the Franklin County Silver Games

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.

The Cardinals fell to the Mets 3-2 in Grapefruit League play. St. Louis mustered little offense except for the third inning when Jason Heyward notched an RBI triple and Matt Holliday added a sac fly. Lefty Marco Gonzales calmed down after a rough start, pitching four-and-two thirds innings and allowing a run on three hits. Five spring games remain for the Cards, who host the Nationals today.
