Through the years I guess I was too cheap, or maybe to lazy to get updated photos taken, so I stuck with the photo of me when I was 35 years old. Today I'm 58 years old and I laugh at the guy who I see in my Avatar all over the net. He was a good man, a good father, and a good husband--but he's evolved. That man doesn't really exist anymore. I have taken his place.
So I thought it was about time to come clean. No more using photos that are over 25 years old. I thought this was a good place to do it. So today I'm revealing the real Mike McMillan. He ain't much to look at, but it is me. I haven't gotten a haircut since my wife passed away six years ago. I got old--but I still feel like a kid.
I still go out to a football field where I played as a kid. I take my football, my tee, and a forty year old pair of Riddell football cleats. On a good day with a great wind I can still split the uprights from 35 yards out. On a bad day it really ain't pretty.
But somehow I did get old. So I'm changing my image today. I'm replacing my Avatar here with my new one. On a good day, it looks like me. On a bad day I look much, much worse. I'll probably keep the new, long-haired Avatar up for the next 30 years. Get used to it!
