A legend at 94

I was lucky enough to be able to interview Negro Leagues legend Buck O'Neil earlier today. During the course of the 10-minute chat, I learned several things but none more important than this: Age really is nothing but a number

O'Neil is 94 but you wouldn't know it by talking with him or hearing his plans for the summer, which include a trip to Cooperstown, N.Y., and the Baseball Hall of Fame.

If I'm lucky enough to make it to 94 (still got about 70 years until I get there), I sincerely hope my mind is as sharp as O'Neil's and that my life has been as fulfilling.
