…and here’s what made me feel that way.
I just looked at the Italian World Cup squad on Wikipedia. Their birthdays are listed.
I am older than all but five of them (Cannavaro, Materazzi, Peruzzi, Inzaghi, and Del Piero, who’s five days older than me). That leaves 18 World Cup champions that are younger than me. This is problematic for me, because it means I probably won’t be able to get in shape for the next World Cup, and if I did, at 35 I’d be too old. Though I suppose my complete and utter lack of soccer-playing talent may be a larger obstacle.
Oh well. Back to my rocking chair.
