Appreciating Old Athletes

I guess it's probably just a reflection of my own autumnal age, but I find myself rooting more for an 'old' Tom Brady than my own local Seattle Seahawks, just as I used to cheer for a vintage Peyton Manning. And I really delight in seeing Leo Messi play a match, Phil Mikkelson or Tiger Woods play a great round of golf, LeBron James dominate a basketball game, or Roger Federer or Serena Williams win a tennis tournament. Rampant reverse ageism.

I know what you mean. Enjoyed watching the skill and guile of bowlers Anderson and Broad this summer and Alistair Cook is still a great batsman. Ronnie, Williams and Higgins are still keeping the young whippersnappers at bay in the snooker world too.
