hunters are just getting started

I'm going to have to stop reading sporting columns

"The New York Yankees will go on without all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera, who twisted his right knee in a freak injury during batting practice Thursday, tearing his ACL and meniscus. Rivera, who is 42 years old and hadn't been on the disabled list in nine years, likely will miss the rest of the season because of the recovery time involved — usually 6-9 months. He hinted in spring training that he would retire after the season and, as of now, he doesn't know if he will pitch again. Rivera was teary talking to reporters."

Well like Satchel Paige said, "Don't look back, something might be gaining on you."

Do I have to put up with this stuff about career ending injuries and bad knees. Heck, the guy is only 42 years old.
I had knee injuries before Rivera was even born, and I had to recover.

I better keep quiet about walking five miles in the last three days. Some medical specialist might declare me a paraplegic, just for my audacity. And I'll lie like hades, if anyone asks if I used a walker, once, for three days.

Baseball players retire at 42; hunters are just getting started.

And we do it while putting up with aches and pains because to miss an opening day would be worse than death itself. There are a few days when I wonder how much longer I can go hunting in the manner I want to go hunting, but then I take a deep breath and the wonder passes.
