“Walking around like he’s 50 years old”

That's how GU basketball coach Mark Few described one of his banged-up players in a story by Jim Meehan this morning.

I hadn't realized that 50 was the point at which a person's gait begins to resemble that of Grandpa on “The Real McCoys.”

Guess I'm overdue to begin showing signs of having a hitch in my git-along. Or whatever.

So anyway, if you are 50 or older and thought you walked normally, you might want to check again.

Few makes a lot of money, so I guess we have to assume he knows what he is talking about.

Maybe 50 is the new 80.

You've heard of “walk like a man” and “walk like an Egyptian.”

Well maybe, in Spokane, “walk like a 50-year-old” can be a thing.
