Just read that Chris Cairns of New Zealand is retiring from International Cricket. Good for him. However, when I learned that he has been playing in the New Zealand team for 16 years that's when it struck me. I saw this guy on his debut. I saw his father Lance Carins score his fastest fifty. Man, the slow but sure realization of age is here. I am getting old. A fact I'd like to deny by exercising, changing hairstyle, wearing nice clothes, but its there and nothing can be done about it.
