Last night Joe Montana’s record of Super Bowl TD passes was broken by Tom Brady.
It’s OK. It’s good to break the records. It shows the game progresses, the players get better, and new stars emerge.
It’s hard for kid’s to grow up without feeling they are watching the best players ever. My favorite players were from when I was a kid. They were the best then and I loved them. Why shouldn’t the kids today have the best and remember the best and watch them play. It’s what keeps the games alive, it keeps them worth watching, and it does nothing to eliminate the memories and achievements of the past.
Tell stories of yester year. It’s what us old people do. We secretly know our time was the best time. Let the babies have their bottles.
