There are actually people who don't believe Bill when he tells them he has Alzheimer's?Otherwise, this was a very inspiring story!

I think some people (as he mentions, kids) might not know exactly what it is, particularly if they don't know anyone with it. Many of my relatives have had Alzheimer's, so I was aware of the name and the general idea of what it was from a fairly young age, but most of my friends (I'm in my 20's) don't know what it is.

I know some "kids" like my little bro would see it as some manner of "excuse" for not playing at his level; this kind of intolerance always annoys me.

The younger set tend to view things in absolutes, so it wouldn't be an uncommon thing for them to equate a genuine limitation to an excuse. The reasoning goes something like, "Good players's do X, therefore anyone who does not do X is not a good player." Unfortunately, that's also where the reasoning stops.
