Ken Mink is a badass. The 73-year-old just made the Roane State basketball team. Roane State, by the way, is in Tennessee. He’s listed as a senior on the roster–not to be confused with a senior citizen (ohhhhhhhhh). Anyway, the Minkster played college hoops back in the day too. But, like I said, he’s a badass. According to the Knox news:
So Mink, whose playing career at Lees (Ky.) Junior College came to an unceremonious end in 1956 when he was dismissed – wrongly, by his account – for allegedly soaping the coaches’ office with shaving cream, wrote to several colleges in search of a place to play.
Oh man, there’s a prank that went out of style. Time to bring back soaping, ya’ll. But I digress.
Mink is nearly twice as old as the school itself, which was founded in 1971.
Look how intense he is in that picture! Sadly, in a one-on-one game, this septgenarian would probably kick my ass. And then out drink me at the bar. Whatev, he seems cool.
