OPP: Living in the Past

Yi! OPP is from Charlotte:

Yi Slacker and Steve,
My man is a 41 year old sales rep, he has a son, and plenty of friends, but all he ever does is talk about his “football days.” Anything anyone ever says somehow has a tie to something that happened to him when he was playing. Thing is, he wasn’t that good. He played in high school and sat on the bench for one year for a small college that won two games. I’m getting so tired of hearing about it. I need him to realize that life moves on and no one wants to hear about his glory days! What do I do to get him to live in the present?

Slacker says that he thinks this happens to a lot of people that were popular in high school. The more popular you are, the harder it is to move on when you graduate. He said there are a lot of people, like himself, that spend high school looking forward to getting out and aspiring to be more...not looking back recalling the glory days. Both Slacker and Steve agree that something needs to be done or this guy will start projecting his achievements on his son.

What can Charlotte do to get him to move on from his days on the field?
