Baseball and Granny

Great-great-great Grandma Elizabeth Sullivan, who is 105-years-old, will be throwing the opening pitch on Wednesday at the Rangers/Seattle-Mariners game in Ft. Worth. Miss Sullivan has been a Rangers fan for 15 years and loves baseball. When you watch the video, she has a very witty humor about her and surprisingly, she's pretty healthy for a gal of her age. Dr. Pepper is sponsoring the game and chose her to send the opening pitch and by the way, she loves to drink Dr. Pepper. She's been practicing her throwing pitch, so we'll see how she does. Believe it or not the game will start at 1:05 pm which coincides with the number of her age.
FORT WORTH -- It's not every day a reporter gets to play a little catch on the job.

I am sure that it will be seen all over the news channels as Dr.Pepper is going to want to get the most of it for publicity!

Isn't that amazing @TiarasOceanView . I love her sense of humor too. We should all be that lucky to be in the good health that she's in at her age. I can't believe she drinks 3 Dr. Pepper's a day. That crap is absolutely loaded with sugar.

@nanette64 I know now that I dont get, but you know Nanette, I think along with diet, we should have that get up and go attitude like this lady..I think bad diet is not the only thing.

@TiarasOceanView Very true. A lot of older people when they hit retirement age think just sitting in a rocking chair is the way to go, but that's the worst thing they could do. You would think with having more time on their hands, they would go do all the things they couldn't get done when they were working all the time. Heck, even in my condition, I mow, weed-wack, take care of critters, garden and anything else I can do to stay mobile.

I only have all admiration for her, while we put much emphasizes on diet for longevity ( which is not bad and very important), at times we tend to ignore good attitude, humor, and proper mind set that goes hand in hand with it..

Yes, but don't forget she doesn't seem to have any diseases either.

Absolutely correct @louievill ; a lot of it 'is' in the mind.

@marlina Which is amazing since she drinks Dr. Pepper. That is loaded with sugar.

Good for her! I heard about a British man who will be 105 on Thursday and get his first tattoo. He will have one on his shoulder and is doing for a hospice charity. Last year he participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge on his birthday. That bucket of cold water sounds like it could cause a hear attack!

A good role model for those of us who will be older tomorrow than we are today. I wonder how far she'll throw. Probably not 60 feet 6 inches.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind having her genes @TheHorse . She's been practicing, so hopefully it'll be a pretty good throw. I imagine though that regardless of how far, the crowd will go wild.
