On Friday, I took one for the team and went with my wife to the New Kids on The Block Edition. Normally, I wouldn’t mind too much, but I had to give up seeing the end of the Red Sox playoff game. When you watch something around 120 regular season games, you kind of want to watch the playoff games. Anyway, the New Kids played all their cheesy boy band songs while I text messaged anyone and everyone I could think of to pass the time.
If you’re a New Kid fan, I’m sure you thought it was great. I have to give them a little credit for pulling off a strong 15 minute finale. They pulled out the Boston Celtics on the large screen (completely unexpected when you are in San Jose). They followed that up with Queen’s We Will Rock You and transitioned into Hanging Tough. I didn’t think I’d be excited by the time Hanging Tough came on, but I have to admit, they finally worked the crowd.
The other notable part of the concert was that with a 100:1 girl to guy ratio, it would have been a good place to pick someone up. For me though, the ratio just meant that I had a 100 person bathroom to myself.
Anyway, here are some links while I turn my attention to the Patriots-Chargers game.
