He's a great guy and the article is accurate in that he'll talk to anyone and is incredibly friendly, but I'd be lying if I said I think his on-air game hasn't been slipping lately...and he has his share of detractors who thought he didn't have much on-air game to begin with.
And time IS short. My dad is 64 going on 65, healthy in many respects but plagued with back miseries that are only getting worse. Once you get into your 60s, you don't really know how long you're going to be able to do the things you've always said you'd "hope to get around to" someday.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
