Breaking: Jamie Moyer's Hip

Get it? Because Jamie Moyer is old! Jack McKeon managed Moyer's first game! It was played in New Amsterdam! They would have starved if those nice Cleveland Indians didn't teach them how to plant Cracker Jacks and/or marinate buffalo colons long enough to make the perfect hot dog! Jamie Moyer is old!

But, heck, it's still funny. We're simple people. And over at Getting Blanked, Drew Fairservice has a roundup of Twitter jokes and facts related to the revelatory news that Jamie Moyer is still old:

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!

And over at Value Over Replacement Grit, we have a collection of fun facts:

when (Moyer) made his Major League debut on June 16, 1986 ... at least 276 players in all had not been born yet.

It's the wasn't-even-born-yet angle that never ceases to surprise, and it caught Ben Lindbergh's fancy:

Thinking of doing a retroactive liveblog of 8/16/86. Yu Darvish: /cries, has umbilical cord cut. Jamie Moyer: /strikes out Vance Law.

Jamie Moyer is still old. You read it here first. Unless you read those other places first.
