On Sunday night I went into Boston with some friends to see The Package Tour – Boys II Men, 98 Degrees and Boston’s own New Kids on the Block.
I first saw NKOTB at the old Foxboro Stadium (the old stadium that my beloved New England Patriots played in before they built the snazzy new Gillette Stadium that they play in now) when I was in the ninth grade. So, if you’re better at math than I am – we’re talking a little over 20 years ago. Imagine being a girl at the ripe old age of 14 getting to see her biggest crush…..let’s just say that at the time, it was pretty much one of the greatest nights of my life.
But some things never change.
Here is is 2013 and there were more girls there with crimped hair than should have been (for the record, that number should have been a big fat zero). I understand that that NKOTB were big in the late 80′s/early 90′s, but that doesn’t mean that anyone needed to dress up like they were stuck in that time period. You know what I mean? Besides, who the hell even still has their crimper from 1989 anyways?
Oh, and there was this chick with a banana clip. And again, I have to ask – who still has one of these in their house?
