Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

NOT GETTING ANY YOUNGER

No matter what you want to say about him, Jim Leyland is, most definitely, an impressive manager. He's authoritative, he isn't afraid to make serious demands and tough decisions and he has tons of character. Maybe it comes with all the tobacco he consumes or the black coffee that's stained his gear, but he comes across as a man's man. Of course, by this point, he also comes across as very old, a tale which is told pretty distinctly in this photo, taken during a blowout loss. Take note: Mommas, don't let your babies grow up to be nicotine fiend aging baseball managers. (Jeff Roberson/AP)

It happens to most of us eventually (the alternative is not pleasant). What I see in that photo is wisdom and experience.

what I see this as is "mommas don't let your babies grow up to be pansies that have to answer to someone like this"
