Chalk up another win for us old guys.
Helio Castroneves, 46, became a four-time Indianapolis 500 winner before 135,000 race fans in attendance May 30.
A week before, Phil Mickelson nailed a brilliant two-shot victory at the 2021 PGA Championship with a 6-under 282. The 50-year-old became the oldest golfer to win a major. He is a six-time major winner.
Of course Tom Brady – aka the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) – set the bar high by winning the Super Bowl in his first year at Tampa. At age 43, Brady became a seven-time Super Bowl champion.
Captain Obvious points out the clear trend here. We old guys have taken over the sports world. I’m a 66-year-old slow as molasses runner, but these achievements by seasoned veterans give me hope. I plan to continue running almost every day, and maybe someday I might get a second or two faster. I know now it can be done.
