How time flies

I am amazed at how times flies. Usually you can’t truly notice how time goes so fast when thinking of your own life. But when you are seeing old buddies, or when you read news about people of the past, then it really becomes clear. I was reading that Greek basketball player Rentzias is now stopping basketball at his 30 years of age. I remember Rentzias from the days that he was a kid and was promoted as a big hope of the sport (I was following basketball a lot while in Greece ;) ). And now, he is already 30, and he is stopping the sport… How is it possible for time to fly by so fast? Rentzias, Galacteros, Alvertis and all the rest of that golden era of the Greek basketball are still teenagers in my mind…

The golden era of the Greek basketball was from about 1987 to 1995. These teenagers I mentioned started to become known in the beginning of the 90s. :)

I had exactly the same feeling when i saw Luís Figo and Pauleta announcing that they where leaving the Portuguese National Soccer Team.

We people only notice that time really has gone by, when some of our icons go away. :)

I have to agree with this. Life has seemed like a whirlwind, especially this past year. I’m getting closer to that big 30 (years of age) as of April this year, and it’s amazing to me how so many of the friends I’ve had in the past, and the events of the past year still seem so recent in my mind.

It’s really odd sometimes to bump into people I know when I was much younger, because I can’t quite shake the image I have of them being so much younger.

It is more evident if you live away from the country you were born in, only because you do not really keep in touch with daily life there and all you have is memories of years gone.

I thought the golden era of Greek basketball was the previous generation, with Gallis, Yannakis, Fasoulas, Christodoulou (sorry if the spelling of some names is not correct).

And the current generation won the European championship last summer !

Yes, time goes by very fast when we look at the past. Or just when we grow older. With sport stars it also happens to me that when I was a kid they seemed to last forever, and now their careers seem to pass so fast !

But even the summer that seemed so long when we were kids will soon be over…
