Sid Hartman interviews Tyus Jones with recorder that might've been Fred Flinstone's [PHOTO]

Sid is so old, he was general manager of the Minneapolis Lakers! (Seriously!) And he's still working today. Kudos to him.
At 93 years old, Sid Hartman continues to write columns for the Star Tribune. He's 77 years older than 16-year-old Apple Valley basketball star Tyus Jones.

Last night, Jones's 23 points, six steals, and five assists led Apple Valley to a 62-55 victory over Eden Prairie in the state semifinals. Jones is currently rated the number two high school prospect in the whole country, and reporters, including Sid, gathered to ask him some questions following the game.

At one point, Sid -- who began using Twitter about a year ago, making him possibly the oldest tweeter in the world -- managed to squirrel Tyus away for a bit of one-on-one time. Here's a photograph of Sid, Tyus, and the prehistoric tape recorder Sid was using:

We'd really like to get a listen to Sid's interview tapes, if only because we suspect it might help us understand what brontosauruses sounded like back in the day.

All I want to know is where do you even buy tapes to put in that thing?  Lighten up people, it's supposed to be MN nice not Mn pussies.

Goddamn, you Minnesotans are boring. Anything even remotely critical gets called out for being a bunch of just a bunch of meanies. The fact is Sid is an out-of-touch hack who lives on platitudes and banalities. If Minnesota nice is cloying bromides, fuck that.

I wonder if the Long Island Mediums recorder can beat out Sids ? They almost look alike  lol

Apparently nobody here has ever heard of jokes.  Haha grandpa, Sid don't care.

Making fun of Sid shows a total lack of class. Good luck Aaron on having a career that is 10% of what Sid has accomplished.

In this post, we see Aaron Rupar display the professionalism he is known for, and that Citypages has nothing better to display on the front page.

We're all winners here.

Still milking the naked woman icon weeks after the issue? Can't say I'm surprised

@OliverTwist I guess I see what you're saying - that is, if you're a sadist who gets their kicks bashing others. Take it back to NYC asshole and you'll be a star.  We aspire to MN Nice here - you wouldn't understand. Jokes are fine but Aaron takes it a bit far in this article.

@scott.luse Being a blogger for a 3rd-rate "Weekly" is hardly what I would call a career.

@Wakka_Wakka Rupar is nothing but a wanna-be Liberal lobbyist posing as a blogger. He should take his talents elsewhere where they could be put to be better use. Such as becoming a non-biased reporter for Mother Jones or MSNBC.

@Wakka_Wakka  I thought it was a decent, interesting article until that last stupid crack about brontosauruses.  It's nice to see Sid still active and out there working at 93 - the guy is a living legend in MN. 

Hey Aaron, let's see if you even make it close to 93 years old and, in the unlikely event that you do, still be doing your job.

@MNjoe

Wait, I'm confused. You say we shouldn't be bashing on another, and in the same sentence call someone a sadist? At least get your own messaging right, ya rube.

@keny1 @scott.luse I'd be willing to bet City Pages is the most read weekly in the state, are you implying the MPS/STP market is 3rd rate then?

@keny1 @scott.luse  Come on at least he has a job and its a honorable one. If your lucky U will be his age. Its not that serious.    Home slice

@keny1 No problem with him being a liberal, just too many digs at Sid's age. A little is OK if you balance it with some positive stuff.  But what's really amazing is how morons like yourself drag politics into everything.  Must be a really sad llife to be such a hate-filled asshole. Maybe you should try becoming a non-biased reporter for Fox News.

@MNjoe Given that you clearly meant it as an insult and not an analytical description, I think I'm still pretty confused.

@OliverTwist @MNjoe I'm sure confusion is a perpetual state for you - a sadist IS a person who gets their kicks bashing others.  Learn to read. It's educational AND fun.

@keny1 @MNjoe Not seeing any politics in that article - why do you feel the need to bring it into unrelated subjects? Get help!!!

@MNjoe Hey, Rupar digs up politics everywhere he can. I am just trying to catch up with him. I mean, honestly, don't you find his Michelle Bachmann articles a little bit annoying? Yeah, fine, she's a moron, but Rupar just can't stop reporting on her. He's giving her the attention that she doesn't even deserve. I mean, the national media (yes, even Fox News) tries to ignore her, because even they know what a nut case she is. I read the City Pages because I want to read articles on the music, food, and art scenes in the Twin Cities. Not to get some idiotic articles on Michelle Bachmann or Grandpa Sports. If Rupar would find meaningful stories to write about, and would quit with the Liberal propaganda, I wouldn't be forced to call out his bullshit. I understand that CP is a left-leaning Weekly, and I don't have a problem with that, but when you have idiots like Rupar who turn this rag into the National Enquirer, its loses all credibility. Would you not at least agree with me on that point?
