Shoot the Boot

Rugby in Albany's been getting lots of attention lately, most recently in an AP story by Michael Virtanen about the Albany Knickerbocker's Old Boys team. When you reach a certain time of your life, you love hearing stories like this one, about graying guys who still go out there and kick some butt. That's what makes Roger Clemens so cool; when you're his age and can still throw a scary ball there's hope for the rest of us. Darcy Downie, whose 43 year-old husband plays on the Old Boys squad summed it up neatly:
Old age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill.
