One for the aged

So, how long ago was 1994?

Bill Clinton was one year into his first term as President.

Peyton Manning was a freshman at Tennessee.

Mario Andretti was still racing at Indianapolis.

Jeff Gordon was 23 years old, the Brickyard 400 was zero years old and no one had yet heard of LeBron James, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Twitter, Facebook, blogging, iPhones, the E*trade baby and the Geico gekko.

Oh, yes: And no one had yet heard of golfer Ken Duke, who turned professional that year.

Sunday, at the age of 44, in his 187th start on the PGA Tour, he finally broke through, beating Chris Stroud in a one-hole playoff to notch his first Tour victory.

If there's a better sports story today ... oh, forget it. There is no better sports story today.
