Here’s something that could make some NFL fans feel old: Dan Marino is a new representative for the American Assn. of Retired Persons.
The Hall of Fame quarterback who turned 50 last September has been appointed the AARP’s “Men’s Life Ambassador” and will share his thoughts on a variety of topics, including health, fitness, sports, lifestyle, entrepreneurship and community service. He’ll use the organization’s website, www.aarp.org, as his primary means of speaking to men ages 50 and older about those issues.
“We’re trying change a little bit how people look at 50,” Marino said in a phone interview. “It’s a little different than how our dads looked at 50.
“It’s an incredible platform when you think about the membership.... Our message is that age is only a number; it’s all about your attitude.”
