I second that Go Pats, Go Sox, Go Bruins.

We both forgot the Celts !! I still mourn the days past of watching the dream team of Bird, McHale, Ainge, and Parish doing their magic on the parquet floor of the old Boston Garden.

Ah, I was a fair-weather Celtics fan from those days. I did get to one game and had the privilege of seeing Michael Jordan play. Spectacular.

My final goal was to retire! Now I don't need to set any goals. Just enjoy my retirement however I please.

I didn't forget them. I haven't watched any basketball since the strike season. I just don't relate to BB any more.

That was when I liked basketball. But I honestly was keen on the game even then. I would follow it but if the Bruins were on the same time as the Celtics I watched the Bruins. Basketball the game was a distant 4th then but now it ranks below watching my lawn grow weeds.

Heh. I love baseball, always did. A fan of the game itself. I realized that one reason I don't like hockey or football is you can't see the players' faces. Maybe it's a girly thing.

LOL, IMO even with his helmet on Tom Brady can keep his slippers under this old lady's bed any time he wants.

A great many people avoid living by following plans, goals, and objectives. They experience life as it happens. I am not one of those and instead my modest successes in life have been due to goals and plans. It should be no surprise that we approach retirement differently. Some of us are happy just to reach retirement with a measure of financial security. Instead I had a list of goals. Those included selling the house, taking off full time traveling in an rv, developing skills as a photographer and visual artist. Those goals included achieving a level of recognition and having my work accepted by galleries and museums. I have another whole series of goals involving life long learning and take a lot of formal courses as well as teach. I have simpler goals regarding my hobby, archery and am starting to win competitions. At any age and stage of life I believe in setting goals and striving for a level of achievement and excellence.
