Forgive my ego, but I'm 35, and I don't mind saying I'm looking good

    I have this theory about life.

    The average male life expectancy is 72 years. So, if you want to keep track of a lifetime the way you measure a ball game, each of our "innings" is eight years long (72 years divided by nine innings). These divisions correspond to some pretty significant milestone years.

    You know, 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, and so on. Anything over 72, and you're into extra innings.

    Having turned 35, you are still nicely tucked away in the top of the fifth. Starting pitchers should still be in the game. Lots of play left. Anyone can win.

    Especially when they have an ass as supple as yours.

    Someone needs to add "supple ass" and "fucking haircut" to the SportsJournalists.com lexicon.

    Oh, and happy birthday, Bubbler.

    Shit, Jonesy, by that theory (an interesting one to be sure) as of Monday I just headed into the bottom of the sixth! These days most starters are running out of gas by that point(hmmmm.....maybe that explains it).

    Is there an exchange rate on this for us Canucks?
  4. I prefer to look at it as a hockey game, whereby I'm still in the middle of the second period.

    Damn, that reminds me of the immortal Stompin' Tom Connors, and that wonderful, wonderful song that I never get tired of. :D

    Happy Birthday Bubs, and I'll be happy to fetch the beer of your choice. Also, does anyone know if his Wal-mart thread is still on the board because I was not around when it happened and never got a chance to read it.

    I turn 38 in less than a week. A lot of people also think I am younger than I am, but I can definitely feel myself slowing down--the last year, in particular, with some sports injuries. I'm definitely not in the shape I used to be in, and I have lost half a step, but I think I am doing well for a guy who is almost 38 (that sounds so damned old to me!).

    I'm 35 in 2 months. Does it go downhill from there? Do I need to inquire about drugs for arousal?
