“[Insert player] would suck in today’s game.”
Sometimes it's fun to needle your dad by telling him that Willie Mays had the skill set of JD Drew, but old timers didn't fly first class, sleep in hyperbaric chambers, and freebase cougar testosterone.

In the future, there will be a loudmouthed whippersnapper hell bent on smearing your favorite athlete, too.
