    Derek Jeter 1996 vs 2013

    What a drag it is getting old…

    This is Derek Jeter circa 1996 compared to Derek Jeter today. I find it kind of sad that my kids, soon to be 9- and 11-years old, will never remember the “young” Derek Jeter. Heck, how many of us remember him that way…? (And, I say this as someone who was 33-years old when Jeter was a rookie back in ’96.)

      I definitely still remember “young Jeter”.

      Separately, wow, I understand why the fade haircut had to go but I didn’t realize that he was going so bald. Makes me feel old to see Jeter looking more and more middle aged.

      Bucky Dent sez: “Hey, I might not have 3,000 hits; but, I’m 61 and I still have my hair!”

      Seriously, Jete is not alone. I started losing my hair in my late 20′s. And, by the time I was 32, it was time to start buzzing my head, ala Matt Lauer, to get in front of it.

      And, now that I am 50, if you told me that I could take a pill and it would cause me to not have ANY hair, anywhere, on my entire body, I would take it, in a heartbeat.

      It really sucks when you don’t have hair where you want it and you have too much of it in places that it requires constant upkeep to get rid of it.

      @ Steve L.:
      Sounds like someone is constantly having to shave their ass. :-)

      Sometimes I think he looks a lot like a tan Quagmire these days. I think he pulls off the shaved head well, but honestly it doesn’t make a difference b/c the man can still take down 99.9% of the female population of planet earth with the pickup line “Hi, I’m Derek Jeter.” Remember, any regrets said female conquests may have afterwards is immediately assuaged by the discovery of a signed ball in the town car taking them home :)

      @ Garcia:
      No issues there. But, having to constantly groom nose and ear hair is not exactly a perk of aging.

      There’s always the Wade Boggs route… :D

      I was in the crowd during his induction ceremony, I was like “I coulda sworn he didn’t have as much hair.” Also didn’t realize how much of a twang he had when he spoke.

      I don’t get why guys are so against getting hair plugs. If it makes you
      look and feel better about yourself why not?

      @ LMJ229:
      Do hair plugs for men = breast implants for women?
      I don’t know, just asking.

      @ Steve L.:
      Good question! Don’t know the answer. It seems there is a stigma related to hair plugs but not so much with breast implants. I think it’s the whole man vs. woman thing. Women are supposed to be into their looks while men aren’t. Of course, with the new “metrosexual” age, things certainly are changing!
