21 Fucking Years Old

1988…what a year. The world was captivated by the Battle of the Brians, riots narrowly averted after Boitano’s close victory. George Bush I proved that anybody in America could pull themselves up by their bootstraps and be elected president. The Last Emperor shocked Hollywood by becoming the first action movie to win Best Picture. Celine Dion won the Eurovision song contest and launched a career that flooded the world with tears. The Dilemma was only twelve years away from his first kiss. “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” showed that suburban moms were finally ready for urban music. And a sparkplug named Punky Brewster exited our lives just as another named Murphy Brown was entering.

And the NBA scoring champion was born.

Congratulations, Kevin. You’ve reminded us all yet again that the unstoppable march of time will not only rob us of our youth, but rub it in as well.
