During last night's Steelers-Bengals game, I tweeted that game referee Mike Carey is 64 years old. This stunned many of my followers, as you will see below. Several people were even skeptical, as if they were questioning my journalistic integrity.
This amusing video (sent by @PeterSowards) of a conversation between Carey and Brett Favre from three years ago is undisputed proof of Carey's age.

In Monday's P.M. Hot Clicks, I linked to Richard Deitsch's roundtable discussion about NFL announcers. I contributed to the piece and defended Joe Buck. Clearly, Packers fans have a different opinion. They've started a petition to get Buck and Troy Aikman banned from calling Green Bay games. (Thanks to Jim, of Minneapolis, for the link.)
