All American Red Heads 1936-1986
I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this video! Found via Bless Your Hearts, a recent blog discovery that sometimes makes me chortle and sometimes makes me scratch my head and ponder a while.
Back to the video...this is just amazing. I'd never heard of a professional women's basketball team. Get back you Harlem Globe Trotter Fans and watch these women!
I have a tendency to want to do anything that looks like fun to me, thus my forays into Tai Chi and Yoga well into my second half-century of life, and my great desire and great regret that I really am to old to risk breaking bones in Roller Derby like my oldest daughter. I would have wanted to play professional women's basketball had I seen this when the All American Red Heads were touring.
Erin, they all dyed their hair red, so you would have fit right in!
I found lots of links on line if you are interested in more info. My thanks to Ms. Moon for sharing her sister-in-law's connection and the video! You go, Brenda!
