    There's still time for some of us -- 80+ tournament

    BURNABY, B.C. - For a group of hockey players who gathered in
    British Columbia to try and set a world record, breaking a stick was no
    big deal - it was breaking a hip they were really worried about.
    Two
    teams made up of players more than 80 years old squared off at a
    Burnaby ice rink Tuesday and are now hoping the Guinness Book of World
    Records recognizes the achievement of the octogenarians.
    "There's never been a tournament for an 80-and-over group," said game organizer Denny Beaudin.
    "We
    have applied to the Guinness Book of World Records to indicate it's the
    first world tournament for players 80 and over, so it's something we're
    hoping we can establish."
    Dave, there's still hope for us

    True, but I'm sure they allow full face shields, and I've already got 4 kids, so ...
