    Stand and get rowdy through timeouts and then once the game starts back up and we've still got momentum, sit back down and shut up?

    Why do we have to bail young people out of the messes they've created so often? It's like they're stupid or something.

    Students are the only fans we can criticize right now from the students not there all of the way to the students who are there.

    Well since most of us are so busy with our big and important jobs we earned by studying our assess off at all costs (except for Dance Marathon weekend) at ISU, we have to sit back down and respond to emails. Its all about time management son.

    If you didn't cheer during the time out, your wife would think it was OK to talk to you about purchasing a new juicer/mix master/shiny object.

    Because we're old, dagnabbit, and we've earned the right to do whatever the hell we please. Now shut up or I'll hit you with my cane.

    Why back in our day, we didn't have any fancy Niangs or Ejims. We had Bryan Heger and Fallencheck and Uthoff .... AND WE LIKED IT!

    No cell phones to check with our buddies if they were going to the game. If you wanted to hook up with your friends, you posted a note on a bulletin board at The Hub a week before the game and hoped they saw it.

    And forget about Clone Cones. We could get three things from the concession stands. Pop, popcorn and polio.

    Needless to say, pop and popcorn were the most popular items.

    Well,......my body aches all over, all the time. Getting old sucks but beats the alternative. You'll see.

    Young guy calls out old people at 1:45 AM, goes to bed....ensuring that other than the few young people still up, a whole bunch of old people will light him up for the next 6 hours since they're the only ones awake early enough to have time to be posting on the internet.

    Why do young people wear pants falling down and shorts to their ankles? Someday your kids will see you in pictures and point and laugh and you'll say to yourself, "What was I thinking?"

    Signed, Elephant bell bottoms and disco shirts that showed midriff - on guys.

    Back in my day we could outsmart the old people. The current younger generation is going to fail pretty hard.

    You forgot #BOOM, otherwise this current generation won't understand your joke.

    Some day you will be old too. Then maybe you will be able to answer your own question, or answer it when some other young smart *** asks it again.
