As a 15 year old I was lucky enough to score match tickets to a few games in World Cup 94, including the famous Italy vs Ireland game. I found the photos the other night in a drawer and was just freaked out by how young we all looked. It didn’t seem THAT long ago but simple maths tells me it’s 25 years ago last week.

A third of a lifetime ago ! That’s a bit of a kick up the arse. It doesn’t seem that long ago.

That 70s Show was first broadcast in 1999, 20 years after the year in which it was set (1979). We're now 20 years on from 1999.

I work with a lad who wasn't born last time Ireland played in a world cup. I watched the Spain match in a pub and went drinking for the day afterwards. I was older then than he is now.

Lads signing their date of birth on the astro-league registration form at the start of season.
Loads of 1996 and 1997 dates there.

Jaysus lads I was married with kids before ye were even born.

I make a point of signing near the end of the form..

When I bend down to tie my shoelaces I wonder is there anything else I can do while I'm down there.

When a sports star is regarded as a veteran, and you remember him/her making their debut.

Taking an active interest in the local death notices.

When you look forward to an early night.

I am guilty of all the above. And shouting at 'the damn kids of today'
