Only Baby Boomers Would Think These Things Are Cool

Baby boomers love to complain about millennials, and here’s a shocker, the silent generation also complained about Baby Boomers. It’s a practice that likely goes back to the start of humankind. Each generation has their differences and those differences often focus on how we live our lives in very different and unique ways.

From wearing jorts to binge-watching 24-hour network news and HSN, these are things most people under the age of 40 wouldn’t admit to doing. But folks born between 1946 and 1964 insist that these things are still relevant. If you think any of the following things are significant today… you might be a baby boomer. Sure, millennials might not get it, but keep being you and never change!

They Throw Down On Racquetball

If you have racquetball rooms in your local gym, chances are half of them are always occupied by a couple of middle-aged men throwing down in the spirit of some good old-fashioned competition.

We can’t see why you’d want to give up the open space of a tennis court to be stuck in a sweat-scented room hitting a ball against the wall but at the very least, racquetball is a good calorie-burning sport, so there’s that. But really, you hardly see anyone under the age of 50 playing this game.
