MUSINGS

Age and a nice walk
Being 61 years old,
and damn near, kind of,
semi-retired, I told my
wife I was going to walk
every day.
“Join a gym,” she
said. “You can join a
gym for $10 a month,
and you could go during
the day when there are
not too many people
there.”
“The only gyms I Marc Dion
ever liked were boxing
gyms,” I said. “They’re
dirty and comfortable, and they don’t have lime
green treadmills.”
“Go to a boxing gym,” she said. “There’s one
in that old factory a mile from here.”
“I can’t go to a boxing gym anymore,” I said.
“If I get in the ring with some kid, he’s going to
knock me around like a tether ball. I’ll end up to
dead.”
“So, go and do all the boxing stuff except
fight,” she said. “Hit the bag, do some weights,
whatever the other stuff was you used to do.”
“No,” I said. “I can’t go in a boxing gym and
not get in the ring.”

Barring ties, NFL
playoff picture is
clear, AFC muddled
By BARRY WILNER
The Associated Press

Barring ties in Week 17 — and there are some
wild scenarios should certain games end in draws
Sunday — the road to the playoffs is quite straight
in the NFC. The path to a first-round bye in the AFC
has a bunch of curves in it.
Already in are NFC division winners Dallas
(East), New Orleans (South), Chicago (North),
and the Los Angeles Rams (West). AFC divisions
clinched belong to New England in the East and,
well, nobody else. But there are clear leaders.
Seattle owns an NFC wild card, and the LA
Chargers have one in the AFC, though they can still
win the AFC West.
“You either believe in something or you don’t,”
says coach Pete Carroll, whose 9-6 Seahawks made
