I had a recent series of post exchanges with some ANers, and I was a little surprised to find out how much older I was. This lead me to thinking about the age of the average ANer, so I created a little poll to measure the statistical range of ages of our fellows.
Along with answering the poll, I'd love to read what you remember as your first memory of the A's. I remember mine: as a kid growing up in the sixties, I remember how strange I thought it was that the coaching staff of the A's wore white caps while the players wore green ones. I know that's a pretty weird and insignificant first A's memory, but it's mine!
I'm old enough to remember...
