How to tell if you're old or not


It occurred to me yesterday while I watched all the post-Super Bowl sports chat shows and read all the stories about how Tony Dungy (above) is the first African-American coach to have won the Super Bowl.

Prior to Sunday's game it was all about how the game featured the first two black coaches to have ever led their teams to the Super Bowl.

Guess what?

The only people who find the above facts of interest are old.

No one under 20 knows these are remarkable milestones — because no one under 20 notices — or cares — if the coaches are African-American, American Indian, Inuit or Lapp.

I find it remarkable, all the noise about the coaches' race.

And I'm glad young people neither notice nor care.

That's the future — and it works.
