For all of us who are still playing and over 60 or so.

Jack Charlton fals and breaks hip   Just saw this short BBC article on the web.  English football legend, Jack Charlton fell down the stairs at home and broke his hip.  Charlton,  brother of Bobby,  is 76 years old.  I've been out on the pitch in recent weeks with fellas that old and even more that are in a close heat to be that old.  Makes me appreciate every day I can go out,  put on my boots,  and kick the ball around. The article notes that when his son arrived after Charlton called to tell him of the fall,  the old boy was sitting in a chair watching the tv where he'd dragged himself.  That gave me a chuckle.
