    Really?

    Blanda played Quarterback and Kicker in the AFL/NFL for 26 seasons and held several records in a plethora of offensive categories.

    Julio Franco is a baseball player who was playing last year at age 49.

    Chris Chelios is a defenceman for the Detroit Red Wings and is playing in his 23rd season at age 45. Arguably the greatest American-born defencemen ever in the NHL.

    Gordie Howe is Mr. Hockey.

    How about Minnie Minoso who played in 6 decades?

    Roger Clemens at high octane at age 45

    Tom Glavine & Greg Maddux both pitching well into their mid 40's and still going strong.

    Geez, now I am slipping forgetting about the Ryan Express.

    There was also Satchel Paige who was mowing them down at age 48.
