50-year old writer surprisingly hates modern sports trend

Don't you hate this?

A trend comes out, people around the world embrace it, enjoy it, copy it, and make it their own. Then some guy in his fifties gets interviewed about it, goes off the handle, and bashes it like it is the worst thing in the world.

I have to agree, it is quite sad. I'm not sure why it happens, but the same demographic always seems to be responsible.

We aren't talking the end of the world here.

So to Ramachandra Guha, suck it up holmes, cheerleaders are here to stay.

To the rest of you baby boomer-type people (not all, but most), let me put this message in a context you might recognize:

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

That's a little Bob for ya, Mr. Guha and Mr. Bissinger. You're welcome.
