View 273: Old Tyme Hockey

I was asked to photograph a charity hockey game which featured teams of players aged 50 and over.  The oldest was 89.  These guys sure got me itching to get out my hockey equipment and lace up the skates.

Older hockey players proving age is only a state of mind as they play in a charity game at the War Memorial in Syracuse, New York.

The game raised $2,500 for the local Make-A-Wish Foundation chapter and was a very spirited game.  Tied after regulation, the Gray Wolves won in overtime, 2-1.
