"I think it was Carl Yastrzemski who used to say, `How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?' I'd be in my late 20s or early 30s, because that's how I feel,"

 

~Mike Flynt, 59-year-old and most recent addition to Sul Ross State's football team

Mike Flynt recently recounted his biggest regret in life as getting kicked off the college team before his senior year. And at age 59, he has now decided to do something about it!

 

Finding out he was still eligible, Flynt returned to Sul Ross State this month, 37 years after he left and could be in action as soon as September 1. His comeback peaked last week with the coach saying he's made the Division III team's roster.

 

It made me wonder what I would like to make a "comeback" in... and I think I'd go back and stick with soccer. Anyone else have any plans for an inspiring comeback?
