    What makes you feel Old? Young??

    Anything you see or go through every onceinawhile that just makes you feel old? Or young?
    Having a daughter that will be in kindergarten in a month makes me feel old.
    The fact that I'm coaching some kids right now that weren't even in HS when I was born is making me feel old.
    But when I go to the weightroom and they are blasting the same music that I lifted to, I feel like a 16 year old again.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: What makes you feel Old? Young??

    The fact that I am old makes me feel old.

    When I go tailgating and watch all the college girls walk by and they look like they are 13 years old, that makes me feel old.

    Actually having 2 kids in 1st grade makes me feel young. I love that they do all the same things I loved to do as a kid. Going on bike rides with them is fantastic. Makes me feel like a kid again.

    I found out recently that I could name every World Series champ (98%) since 1969. It was on a long distance trip with a coworker who thought I was some sort of baseball historian. As it turns out I'm just ****ing old.

    I saw Super 8 the other night and there was a scene with a kid and Electronic Football game. The other men who were 30+ in the theater laughed with me. Dead silence from everybody else.

    The fact many of my employees laugh at the fact I saw "Jaws" and "Star Wars" in the movie theater.

    I swear the age of college kids keeps getting younger and younger.

    I actually thought this too when I was a 5th year senior.

    Seeing a playground I once played on as a kid makes me feel pretty old.

    Maybe you can clarify the logistics of this for me, but why would you be coaching someone 15 years older than you?

    Maybe, competitive 50+ slow pitch softball team? Some people take this game very seriously.

    Re: What makes you feel Old? Young??

    I teased my dad when I was in HS about his hair loss. He bet that I would be bald by the time I turned thirty. Well I started losing hairline at 18- it was like a flaky scalp commercial, only with little strands of my buddies falling into the sink whilst I was combing.

    I am now almost 32 and I made the bet- but the bald spot in the back seems to be in direct competition with the hairline in the front.

    So, going to the barber makes me feel old.

    Telling kids about the days when movies actually had a plot to go along with the fx makes me feel old.

    Knowing that Back in Black is 30 years old also makes me feel old (although I am sure others feel REALLY old).

    Feeling my knees hurt from riding my bike reminds me of my football days, so I guess that makes me feel young again. I still remember my last football practice- it had snowed 8 inches the night before, we were preparing for the first game of the playoffs, and they didnt plow the practice field, so we did lineman drills in the deep snow. Perhaps the most fun I had in pads.

    The same theory can be applied to college girls.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    So are you saying that your avatar is a recent photo?

    And I don't care how old you are, but grey hair makes you feel old, cuz, well you look old.

    The fact that I know a few pro athletes that I played against in high school and one of my college friends will go pro next year makes me feel old. I remember being a kid and always looking up to pro athletes.

    Re: What makes you feel Old? Young??

    When I go back home with the weekend to drink with some of my younger friends (the sophomore and juniors in college) and I end up seeing some 16 and 17 year olds there at the same place I am. Just weird.
