What's your oldest piece of sporting equipment that you still use
My softball glove is 26 years old. It's older than most of the guys on my team. It's so old there's a letter G written on it because when I got it I had a big crush on Barry Gibb.

I found this picture on the web - except for the Redsox logo, this is pretty much what it looks like.

4. tennis racket
I have no idea how old it is, but I think it is a hand-me-down from my sister. If so, that would make it at least 40 years old, possibly 50.

7. a 40 year old tennis racket
that I once used to backhand a rat in the kitchen into oblivion against the dining room wall.
Ugh, what a mess.
(it was the only "weapon" I could find)
