    What the hell is that thing on his upper lip? It can't be a mustache, all of his hair is white.

    Pardon me now while I dribble. Unfortunately, I'm not talking about basketball.

    The one closeup shows that the "thing" above his lip is indeed a mustache. Maybe he dyed it

    In any case, I would be surprised if he got much actual play time. He seemed notably slower than the others. But it's still cool.

    How bad would that team be if the 73-year-old guy was as fast as the rest of the team?

    Funny.lol.

    He made the team probably because there are no tryouts. Not to be negative but sports have become so competitive in schools that now at the middleschool and highschool levels kids have to be good to make the team (around here anyway). So I can't imagine college level.

    But good for him for not giving up on his dream even at 73. Let's see where we are at 73. Probably not playing basketball like him.
