    I had the same thing happen. And many were a chip off of the old block.

    The station we listened to most in HS was a Top 40s station, along with an album rock station as its companion station. Both are now oldies stations, playing the same music.

    Half the stuff on our cable’s “Classic Country” is stuff I played new on the radio in the 80s and even 90s.

    Ironically pop stations too. I heard "If you leave" by OMD on a pop station flipping through stations!

    I read something about MLB rosters and the only players on a roster that were born before 1/1/1980 are Ichiro (since retired) and Fernando Rodney (how does he have a job?).

    I first knew I was getting older, becoming a real grownup, when there started to be Major League Baseball players who were my age. Then, I knew I was getting older when the manager started to be my age. And then, I knew I was officially old when players my age were almost all retired. Baseball is a game people fall in love with in our youth, but, alas, youth doesn’t last forever. And eventually you hit the point when you’re older than everybody. It’s a sad day.

    Here are the stages, as I’ve established before:

    Youth

    All baseball players are older than you. They all seem eternal and massive, like redwoods.

    Peerism

    Rookies are your age; you watch up-and-coming prospects while studying for midterms. The world spreads out before you, limitless.

    Peak years

    This is when you are the same age as the superstars, mid-to-late 20s, when players are at their absolute best and you start worrying, "Hey, I should have a lot better idea of where my life is going than I do."

    Established veteran

    This is when the players who were rookies when you were in college started getting called "grizzled."

    Retirement

    It is incredibly disturbing when baseball players your age start retiring and you're still figuring out how to tackle that student loan.

    Manager

    "Wait, how in the world is Rocco Baldelli old enough to be a baseball manager?"

    Death

    Fortunately, we are all immortal and will never die.

    Baseball is, and always will be, a young man's game. Life, however, just keeps going. So here's a look at the oldest 11 players in baseball heading into the 2019 season. To qualify for this list, you must:

    I am certain that there are kids that graduate every year that were not born on 9/11.

    I think I understand what you meant.....
