Today is a big day here in the Bay State. It was twenty five years ago (1989) that former Massachusetts Governor, Michael Dukakis, declared today, April 24th, New Kids on the Block Day.
At the time I didn’t know it yet, but that following summer I was going to be heading to the old Foxboro Stadium (before Gillette) to see the Boston boy band live in the flesh. At the time, it was the highlight of my young life.
So, in honor of NKOTB Day, go ahead and channel your inner 14 year old and celebrate.
