I have just a smidgen of difficulty with the idea that Carol Alt, fresh face of the Eighties, is now 50 years old.

Then again, 50 is the new [pick an integer from, oh, 29 to 47]:

Carol Alt, 2008

This particular shot dates to 2008. And speaking of dates, Alt is romantically linked to Alexei Yashin, who used to play center for the New York Islanders and who still lives on Lawn Guyland, despite currently playing for a team in St. Petersburg, and I don’t mean Florida.

    As far as I’m concerned 50 is still 50 it’s just that there are more of us now and especially in the “will never grow up” category.

    Yeah, what a deal Yash has got going for him… not only is he playing in Russia and sleepng with Carol Alt, he makes *$4.75 million* from his former stateside employers, the Islanders, who bought out his contract several years ago. In fact, this season he is their highest-paid player, and he’s not even on the team!

    It gets better – they’re still on the hook for another $8.8 million, paid out equally over the next four years.

    Ironically, they bought him out because they felt that his production did not measure up to his salary, and he had become increasingly unpopular with the fanbase, largely for issues outside of his control.

    It’s HARD to root for my boys, it really is.

    who is she, exactly?
    [I don’t know who Yashin is either – is he a hockey player? don’t know how good he is as such, but he is good with the money/negotiation, obviously…]

    What happened to her husband, former NY Rangers defenseman Ron Greschner?

    They split in ’96; last I heard, she was suing him for half the take from some investment that he claims didn’t make any money.
