When I was 16 Nolan Ryan was a rookie with the Mets.

Dontrelle Willis was one of the ROY's when I was 16. Nice.

Bobby Crosby and Jason Bay were ROY's when I was 16. Interesting that neither is in the league 10 years later.

Ah, I see one other person has joined me in the 42-47 bracket. The old fogies.

 

For the record, I JUST turned 42 a few days ago.

3 of us in the bracket so far 44 and holding.

First MLB game was 1979...Gary Templeton and the Cardinals played at Wrigley.

 

 

Do those 45 and older get a SoxTalk member discount or at least a discount card for Arby's or something?

This poll makes me feel old. I'm at the top of the 36-41 range.

 

What makes me feel really old is when I look at when some of the young Sox players were born. I was a year out of high school before Rodon was even born.

The first white sox game I ever attended was the last year of Old Comiskey, and Ivan Calderon(RIP) waved at me from left field.

Also, 64-0 M-F? Jeez. I knew it was bad, but that's really bad.

It's because women aren't allowed to vote. #badsexistjokes

With Konerko retired, this is the first time ever that I’m older than every single player on the White Sox 40 man roster. :(

I'm a little surprised no one has voted that is under the age of 23. It's crazy because that's the age range a ton of us were when this site started... But I know it's early in the day - maybe they are all still asleep.

 

Edit: Looks like it took 26 votes to get someone in that age range.

I think forums are going the way of the dodo bird unfortunately with the younger generation. I hope I'm wrong, but they seem to get their discussion fix via social media more than not. I started when I was 14 here, and was on the espn sox forum probably when I was 11. Seems to be the case for a lot of members.

Nothing makes someone 40 feel old quite like someone who is 24 talking about the younger generation.

Yeah, I wondered about that. I couldn't think of a reason why, but I guess the social media aspect makes sense. That's sad, though. I don't think you can get near the quality of discussion on some social media site as you can on a message board like Soxtalk.

 

I was on WSI, ESPN, MLB forums all in the early 2000s before finding SoxNet and then eventually SoxTalk.

 

Dasox24 was a screen name I picked in 6th grade - I used it on WSI and maybe ESPN. I remember because 24 was my jersey number in football that year. I can say this: Dasox24 would not be my screen name if I were to choose one now. And yet, as long as SoxTalk is around, I'll never change it.

Tex hasn't completed poll yet....65+ is still at 0.

 

Thank you for making the cutoff 53 :angry: Put me in an older category. It is weird when I think of some posters and realizing my kids are older. I forget when I was older than everyone on the 40 man roster. I do know that we have never had a president younger than me. (Obama is two weeks older).

 

When I see how many kids were in high school when they started posting here I realize I could be talking to one of my students. That is really weird and something I would prefer to avoid.

When I was 16, the White Sox debuted their new free agent catcher, Carlton Ernest Fisk.
