Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick has a secret he’d like you to know and, frankly, it is quite disturbing coming from a 24-year-old guy taking part in the World Series.
After we won Game 1 of the World Series, I texted some of my buddies, guys I grew up with back in Seattle.
â€œYou won’t believe this, the Backstreet Boys were here,â€ I told ‘em.
I was standing on the third-base line at Tropicana Field with my teammates when they sang the national anthem. It was pretty exciting for me.
That’s right, Mr. Kendrick could have chosen anyone to gush over and chose Howie, other dweeb, older dweeb and the guy who allegedly beat up Paris Hilton.
Kyle isn’t done yet with his lovefest for the prissies.

Let it all out big guy…
I’m only 24, and as a kid growing up near Seattle, boy bands were popular. I always thought the Backstreet Boys were the best out there, better than ‘NSYNC. I was a freshman in high school when they came out with their big CD, and my buddies and I used to listen. The girls always thought they were cute and I liked their music. They were just good.
This is our first glance into how America’s youth were stupidified (is that a word?) by record companies in the late 90s.
Thankfully we don’t fit into this generation of pussies who listened to 5 grown men cry over failed relationships, torn button downs and throwing your hands in the air like you just don’t care.
Shall we take a look back at some classic BSB lyrics.
Now throw your hands up in the air
Wave them around like you just don’t care
If you wanna party let me hear you yell
Cuz we got it goin’ on again
Am I original?
Am I the only one?
Am I sexual?
Am I everything you need?
You better rock your body now
