That photo of me was taken in 1991. As a proud member of the 1981 Indiana University All-Fraternity Championship squad -- the AEPi Lions -- all 11 members returned to Bloomington to take on the young members of our fraternity house. Of course the old-timers, the '81 Champs, prevailed. We won 19-13. In 1996, ranging in ages from 34-36, those same 11 members went back to Bloomington and, again, took on the 18, 19 and 20 year olds in our fraternity house. Again the 1981 Champs were victorious, this time by the score of 22-21. Now? Well, the 11 members of the 1981 Champs range in age from 51 to 53. We're done.

There ain't gonna be no more rematch.
