Age

Youth and age–each has its advantage. The youth swaggered. He was bigger, faster, stronger. He smirked when his aged teammate muffed another play. The old man knew. He had been the youth half-century earlier. He played now to stay active. Not wanting to embarrass his teammates, he worked out regularly. The geezer smiled at the youth and wondered if the kid would be on the court in fifty years. Then the kid would understand. Time changes things.
