Who says you can’t live out your dreams regardless of how old you are?

Don Wiberg, proved that even at 76 you should never stop going for what you want in life. The Santa Cruz Warriors, held an open tryout on Saturday and not only did Wiberg show up but Bay rapper Lil B did as well.

Seventy-six-year-old Don Wiberg hadn’t played basketball in 20 years, having traded it in for beach volleyball, when he stepped on the court Sunday. He admits he couldn’t make his high school team and that he played one year at Cal Tech before deciding he was better at water polo.

Still, he couldn’t resist the S.C. Warriors’ claim that it would welcome anyone over 18 who was willing to pay the $100-125 entry fee.

“It’s on my bucket list,” he said. “You know, what the hell.”
