Confronting my own old fogeyism

Today was opening day for my school's baseball team. A kid in my homeroom got the nod to start at catcher. I asked him something along the lines of his planning to be the next Johnny Bench. I was greeted with an open-mouth look of I have no clue as to what the hell you are talking about. One of his teammates redeemed the youth of today by saying, "Oh yeah he played for the Reds." I hope I'm aging gracefully.
