One of the great writers about baseball.

I don’t know whether this is what inspired your post, but The New Yorker has just published an interview of Roger Angell by staff writer Willing Davidson ( https://www.newyorker.com/culture/the-new-yorker-interview/baseball-fiction-and-life-roger-angells-era-spanning-career-at-the-new-yorker ), with several excellent portraits by photographer Brigitte Lacombe.

I not only want to be Roger when I grow up; I want to look like him, too.

"Norm just turned 95. He's the guy I told you about who can still drive a golf ball 200 yards"

Amazing. I read a piece some time ago from some aging authority that a human body can go right up to age 80 and be reasonably fit. (if the things go well with some decent genes) This expert and I forget the source said after 80 the body ages quick. Maybe there is hope? (says the 65 year old)

When I was 10 my father , aged 56, died. I though he was an old man. Last year a good friend died aged 56. As Ive now passed my 3 score and ten I thought he was a young man. Its all relative.

Norm (95), photo (of), please.
