when mark and i went to watch the phoenix suns recently, i was reminded of the last, and only other, suns game i attended. 18 years ago. i think. it was a finals game. with all the hometown favs: danny ainge, charles barkley, tom chambers, k. j., thunder dan, kurt rambis, etc. it was thrilling.
when i saw all those old favorites' retired jerseys on display, i felt really old.
the suns current lineup - nash, stoudemire, richardson, barbosa (these are the only ones that stand out to me right now) - is impressive, for sure, but nothing like the glory days of the early 90's. is it just me? is anyone with me here?
don't get me wrong. the game was so fun and i loved cheering for the suns with my utah jazz boy. but i am now older than most of the players. i could be their...aunt? maybe steve nash's slightly older sister. it's just sort of surreal. when did this all happen?
