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.

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'
