Seems to me like an awful lot of old folks are in sports today. You noticed? I don't mean your decrepit 30-something-year-old players, who are invariably called "aging veterans," but the actual AARP geezers who are still breathing and pulling the strings. Senior citizens, oldsters, who are -- ugh -- many years young, graybeards who are -- ugh -- up in years.

But look back in olden times. What aged wimps. Old

Of course, the Methuselah of all sports was another Philadelphian: Old
The commissioner of baseball is Old
Now basketball: Old
Sometimes these days, sports look like facilities for the assisted living or ... the United States Senate.
