Obama Bemoans Growing 'Older and Creakier' (Yahoo! Sports)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Like most Americans of a certain age, President Barack Obama is starting to complain about the aches and pains of getting older.

Obama told retired National Basketball Association star Charles Barkley in an interview that aired on Sunday that he was limiting his basketball playing to about once a month because "things happen."

"One is, you just get a little older and creakier. The second thing is, you've got to start thinking about elbows and you break your nose right before a State of the Union address," the 52-year-old president said in the interview broadcast on the TNT network before the NBA All-Star Game.
