Roy Oswalt Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: Roy #Oswalt Retires. The pitching equivalent of a "hard out." Always liked how he battled.

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Mandela - Long Walk to Freedom: Bittersweet given recent events Tries hard but becomes the kind of hagiography the subject himself disdained
