You are a wimp, and so am I.

For anyone who whines or worries about getting 'too old to play,' here's a bit of perspective:

World’s oldest marathon runner Fauja Singh finishes his last race in Hong Kong at age 101 - The Washington Post

So let's have a little smile.

Have you seen That Paintball Channel?

If I can still play at 72 I will consider my life complete, and what's left after that a bonus.

If you can walk, you can play paintball. Even if you can't, there's always camo rascals.

There's some seriously amazing people in this world, it's just to bad so many of them are surrounded by ****rats.

Doing something like that, given his age is CRAZY. If I can still play paintball, and ride a bicycle by 60-70, I'll consider that a victory. I played paintball with a broken nose and orbital once, probably the worst condition I've played through.

There was a guy on my softball team who was pushing 80. He was the funniest SOB on the team. He pitched and slapped singles.

My body feels like its 80 sometimes. I hope I can play PB for another 40 years.
