    Why did no one tell me about this when I lived near the 'nati?

    I have a pair of Duke mesh shorts that I got my freshman year. Probably at The Duck Shop on Ninth, though I think they were still going by their other name at the time. That makes them 31 years old. And they still fit, albeit they are short on thigh length. I'm still trying to figure out if I can work them in to a conversation, "Well, I've got shorts older than you."

    My high school basketball team had short shorts that were replaced the year after I graduated. I felt like a Solid Gold dancer in those shorts.

    Weezie - I still love you but I'm pretty ticked at your Lions right now. What were they thinking - actually winning a game? Knocked me out of Survival Football, darn them.

    Other than that, I'm happy for you.

    I have the greatest pair of gym shorts ever, a knit pair from the University Store bought no later than 1988. I would still be wearing them regularly except the elastic dry-rotted, and I have not yet figured out how to replace it. I WILL do it, though. BEST shorts ever!
