There you are cruising through your Monday. Everything is going well. You haven't spent a second thinking about how you're two decades removed from your glory days or how much weight you've put on since you were rockin' the plaid shirts and going to Pearl Jam shows.

Then someone emails you a clip of Kentucky freshman Willie Cauley-Stein saying he's never heard of Christian Laettner or the former Duke forward's famous shot to beat UK in overtime in the 1992 East Regional final.

Suddenly you're worried about the gray hair creeping in, the retirement account, your kids' college funds and if you will ever actually make that trip to Fiji.

"That's before me," Cauley-Stein said in the video posted by the Louisville Courier-Journal. "I don't know. I don't keep up with it."

Thanks for making some of us feel old, Willie.

Kids these days.

Laettner's shot is an obvious topic anytime Kentucky and Duke play as they are schedule to Tuesday night (9:30 ET) in Atlanta as part of ESPN's 24-hour college hoops marathon. Both teams are 1-0.

Sure, Laettner's shot ripped out the hearts of Wildcats fans a year before Cauley-Stein was even born, but it's perhaps the signature moment of all time when it comes to March Madness. It's right up there with North Carolina State coach Jim Valvano running around the court at The Pit in New Mexico in 1983 after Lorenzo Charles ripped the national title away from Akeem Olajuwon and Phi Slamma Jamma with a last-second dunk of all things.

Next thing you know, some kid is going to say "who?" when asked about the Fab Five.
