We're getting old

Ken Griffey, Jr., retired today. He is only 40.

This feels very strange to me. I wouldn't think I'm alone in saying this either. What 10 year old kid in the early 1990s DIDN'T love Ken Griffey, Jr.? He's probably the first real superstar to retire that happened to have his heyday in our generation. (It shoulda been you, Griff!)

It makes me feel nostalgic. But I think this means we (and by "we" I mean anyone born between about 1982 and 1992) are officially adults now.

This was my childhood.

I have nothing against Griffey, but I did when I was younger. He seemed smug and super slick in those teal Mariners uniforms.

Plus I was a Sega man, not Super Nintendo, so although I've played my fair share of KGJB, I didn't like the bulging muscles and swagger.

I meanwhile was rooting for the Big Hurt.
