Hello, One thing I have noticed, is that, like a fine wine, Fm getting better with age. Most people are like that. Well, maybe not most people, just athletes. Like me. I'm becoming better at football than I wasover a half century ago. I don't play fantasy football. But I could. I don't bet on football games. But I could. I sit in my re- cliner and know what the coach should call. Never mind that as a 155-pound offensive lineman in high schobl, I' ididn't c~ll' many plays. This dawned on me yesterday as I was hauling a load of cattle down the highway listening to the Vikings game. They had a fourth and three inches. Really! Fourth down and three inches! And they punted the ball. They punted the ball! You pay guys millions of dollars and you don't think they can go three inches! They lost. They deserved to lose. Never bet on the Vikings. I quit lis- tening after the punt. Later that afternoon, I was talk- ing to an old, close friend. He was the quarterback on our nine-man football team. We were outstand- ing. We won nearly half our games. Which for us was really good. As we visited I expressed my dis- appointment to him about the Vikings. I told him how I could have made three inches. He re- minded me of how slow I was. He reminded me that I was the slowest guy on a very slow team. He re- minded me that sometimes we punted on third down because we Get the word.out .abOut your business!
