These little shitheads got no respect for us old fogeys!

You all may have heard about Jay Bruce, the kid (and I mean it when I say kid) in Cincinnati that made a hella impressive MLB debut on Tuesday night.

I'm happy for him and all, but there's one problem: he makes me feel old.

For those that don't know, Jay's from Beaumont.

What most of y'all might not know is that I watched him playing little league alongside my little brother.

You see, up until now, I was used to seeing ballplayers in the majors that were older than me. This is the first time I know of that I've been put in my place, so to speak, and watched a player that's younger than me out there on the field.

Nevermind the fact that the person who does it to me is someone I watched play in little league.

In all seriousness, I wish all the best to Jay (whenever he's not playing the Astros of course)

RANDOM FACTOID: The Astros are 75-41 against the Reds since 2001, and have won the season series in every year of that span except 2006.

Wow. I'm going to go pick up my cane and start shaking it at people now. (I'm 28. And sad.)
