Circa 1987.

Jamie Moyer is nearly 50 years old. Fifty! This is not unusual on its own. Many people are even older than that is this very world. Not many of the 49-year olds I know or see sign minor league deals to play professional baseball for the Colorado Rockies, however.

That is exactly what the Rockies did last night when they inked Moyer to just such a deal, with the requisite Spring Training invite on the side. A proud moment for zoomers everywhere! Strike a blow for the silver foxes of the world. Show them the terrible affliction known as “old man ass” is no longer a hindrance in professional sports!

Twitter went to work trying to bring perspective to Jamie Moyer’s advanced age. It isn’t easy. He’s REALLY old. A sampling is below the jump.
