    Well I knew he was in this 40s, but - wow!
    He definitely looks and acts younger!

    I only hope I age that well...

    51 today is approx. what late 30's was a generation ago. There are pro football players, (not soccer), in the US who are in their 40's and they're not kickers.

    Look at Entwistle and Steve Swallow, for instance. They'll smoke people half their ages off the stage.
     
  4. Doug's from Braidwood? That's 10 miles from where I grew up! Damn!

    What's more, I didn't know that black people were allowed to live in Braidwood back then. It's a pretty redneck area :(
