I really hope I'm not one of those who live to be 100. My father turned 80 this year and just last week he has had so many issues that they are now putting a 24 hour a day person in his house and they put him in depends. A few weeks ago something happened with my mother and she is now seeing a psychiatrist and a therapist and her hands are so gnarled with rheumatoid arthritis. My luck as a Jet fan, I will probable inherit all this. Very sad to see parents get old and it really makes you think about getting old yourself. I have to hope my wifes retirement covers us both too.
Native Americans (look at me being politically correct) used to go off by themselves or stay behind when the tribe moved once they knew they were not able to contribute any more. I'm thinking, for myself, I like that idea.
And guys. the Jets aren't winning the superbowl in my lifetime so you will all have to outlive me
