Do you remember when the original “Rocky” movie came to theaters in 1976? If you do (it won an Oscar for Best Picture that year), perhaps you feel old.
But don’t despair.
This month, “Rocky” turns 30. But that’s also a reason to give you hope in your old age. This year, Sylvester Stallone is both reprising the uplifting “Rocky Balboa” role that made him a star (in “Rocky 6”) AND turning 60. We think he is in very good shape for his age, judging from this December photo . . . especially with roughly one “Rocky” installment per decade of life and a lot of bad movies in between.
Sly Stallone and the Buffalo Bills’ Marv Levy, both up there in age and both making comebacks. Very refreshing in an age where the Lindsay Lohans and 20-somethings of the world rule.
