ROD STEWART: Hanging it Up
Rod Stewart is retiring -- from playing soccer.
He says he's playing his last match this month and then "hanging up me boots. I've gotta think of my career -- the knees aren't getting any younger you know! I've had a very good run at it, you must admit, 69. There's something about Sunday morning football, it's an animal on its own... I'm gonna miss it a lot."
Stewart plays for his L.A. Exiles team, which is made up of mostly English expatriates plus a few celebrities, including Billy Duffy of The Cult. The games are held in Palos Verdes, California.
