Old Age

So we hosted a meet last night and we're hosting a meet tonight so I've been right out straight all week. Once more week until I get a little relief as we go on break in 6 days (remember we are Bates High School, after all...) Anyways I haven't had a whole lot of time to get fingers to keys on this fine instrument of communication. But I found this to be of particular importance. I distinctly remember Joe Monatana's last two seasons, which were with Kansas City. Those were the 1993 and 1994 seasons. Are you kidding me? That was 14 seasons, aka YEARS, ago. Bill Russell said famously, "You know you're getting old when you start talking about what you've done instead of what you're going to do." I'm no where near there yet, but, JEESH?! 14 years ago?

I have a Joe Montana autographed picture, though. With the Chiefs. Ah, memories.

  1. I also have an autographed Montana 8x10 from his KC days. This was during my phase of writing to SunSpots in the Sun Journal to ask for pro athletes addresses.

    I wrote Montana a particularly good letter, and about 2 years later (when he was already done with KC) got an 8x10 in the mail. I am pretty sure the autograph is fake, but I pretend like it is real.
