Things you'd prefer to not hear...

Played a scrimmage game this past Thursday - our coed team vs. a local church/school team. They had about 29 players, most seemed to be under 20 and they had about 30 fans, singing, chanting and cheering. It was a blast. We won the game but I don't think anyone cared. It was the type of game I love; people just out to have fun, enjoy the sport and play as a team.

To get to the title of this post: At half time the other team's fans were heard over saying:

"Man, even that old guy can spread the ball around the field."

Me = old guy

I don't quite remember what exactly it was that was said about my age many years ago at a MS testing event...but I'm definitely smiling to myself reading this post.

I recently had a member of my team characterize the members of the group of people that we were travelling with. I was described as, "...like the father of the team". Ugh.

Uh oh. Did I say something in MS? I don't remember! What was it?

Had a woman in a Thai restaurant look at me after ordering wine and shrug, and say...

"Yeah, no need to card you."

Sigh.

It was the old "bald" guy...

Hmm. In that case maybe they were referring to you...?

Nope.

I was the old fat guy who out ran them all but couldn't shoot...
