What is "I'm not that old, Alex"

If you watch Jeopardy, you know that they're currently running the College Champions. In the past I've always sort of liked it when they did college and high school tournaments because I would occasionally actually know an answer (question).

Last night while sitting at my mom and dad's house (avid Jeopardy watchers) there was a category selected called "Pop's Music" with the premise being that all of the answers pertained to music these kids parents would listen to. These college kids.

And I knew every - single - one.

The Beastie Boys, Flava Flav, Led Zeppelin...

How is it that my music is actually considered some college kid's dad's music?

Sometimes life is just a kick in the mouth.

That's ridiculous!! Although I suppose . . . doing the math . . . if I were in college when that music was popular (I was in 7th grade in 1986/87 when "Fight For Your Right To Party" was my favorite song!) . . . then . . . say it ain't so . . .but it COULD be true! oh no!!

I think they're pushing the limits there, though.
