    For real. It's about time he let his son go play with the other big boys.

    On a Caribbean cruise my wife and I took a number of years ago, the ship hosted a free-throw shooting contest the first day at sea. There were a lot of men in their 20s and 30s such as myself, and one guy who looked to be 75. I told my wife before the contest started that the old guy would win. And damned if he didn't.

    My wife asked how I knew. I said a 75-year-old who willingly chooses to compete against people half his age or younger is pretty damn confident he's got game.

    Where's Starman? This is the perfect example of the gritty, scrappy, experienced white guy. :D
