God bless him and all the raiders. Found this interesting article (written a couple years ago). The story of the goblet tradition is pretty cool (at the bottom of the article).

I was saddened to hear this.

And then saddened again when I realized I was getting old.

I remember when I first realized I was getting old. I was a standby medic at a high school football game. Halfway through the game I discovered that I was checking out the moms in the stands rather than the cheerleaders. Then recently I went to a senior community to help a little old lady who had fallen and could not get up, and I suddenly realized I was old enough to live in the community!

Alas, the whole generation will soon be gone.

I'm not saddened by getting old. I hope to get much older. We all know what the alternative is....

Time will wait for none of us.

As my dad always says in regards to getting old, "it's better than the alternative!"
