Getting older. Not old, just older. Thankfully, I get to hang around a bunch of teenagers who keep me up-to-date on what is hip and cool. Not that I can keep up on everything, nor do I want to. But it is nice to have an idea on what is going on.

Coaching and listening to high school hockey players offers me a chance to help the kids understand things as they used to be. I often reference things and events the boys have no way of knowing...things that happened before they were born.

As the boys go back to school, check out the frame of reference college freshmen view life through.
