Old guy is anyone older than me, until I'm that age, then it's anyone older than me at that point.

EDIT:
And everyone else is a damn whippersnapper! Which might make me an old guy.

I say an old guy is anyone who was playing before 2000. That's my general rule.

Pretty much anyone that is over the age of 30 is an old guy...or if they have been playing for more than 20 years...

Dang Legs....we're only a few months apart.

Old means everyone around you says "huh?" when you talk about something from the 90's.

I'm 25, so hardly old, definitely in my prime, but I had an "old" moment this weekend at the field this weekend. I was chronoing my Mag (hadn't been touched in three years and went 272,268,271 FYI) and the kid who was punching cards goes "what is that? I've never seen anything like it".... :facepalm:

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..

How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.
