Celebrating my "60th" birthday ...

    The deal is, I turn 50 next week.

    No great novelty – I think the baby boom peaked in 1957, so there are millions and millions of us.

    I'd say I don't feel 50, but there are days when I do.

    Anyway, inspiration struck me earlier this week ... I'm going to start lying about my age.

    Not younger – older.

    Wednesday is my 60th birthday. when I tell people how old I am, they're going to say, "Damn, he looks pretty good for 60."

    Happy birthday and congrats on the milestone.

    Alas, we have a forced retirement policy, both here at [fill in name of your paper here] and SportsJournalists.com. You have five minutes before your desk is deposited into a shoebox and your account here is nuked.

    Hey, can I have a piece of that cake?

    I knew the birthday cake would distract you from our kicking your 60-year-old ass outta here.

    WTF? This isn't Carvel? Damn you! That's a fireable offense. Well, except for you.

    Geez, Henry, don't you know 60 -- which JR and I are rapidly approaching and Casty has already hit -- is the new 40?

    You're just a kid at 50.

    Coming from you, I know they will fashionably coordinate with the rest of my wardrobe.
