YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN YOUR 50S WHEN

Four and a half hours before the New England Patriots collide with the Pittsburgh Steelers, you're concerned that what ought to be a classic slugfest in the snow might just run into overtime and cause you to miss the first half hour of Desparate Housewives. I'm not embarrassed to say that if it comes down to a choice between the Steeler's Ben Roethlisberger and the Housewives' Terry Hatcher, well, I'll have my wife tape the rest of the football game on the VCR.

Maybe the title of this post should have been Desparate Geezers!!!
