Speaking of "The Super Bowl Shuffle" ...

Here is a little piece of extreme cuteness featuring 7-year-old me and my 7-year-old friends (many of whom remain 28-year-old friends) rehearsing our legendary rendition of "The Super Bowl Shuffle" for the school talent show.



You know that's me rocking the saxophone.

I played back-up QB Steve Fuller. (Who else?) And I "rapped" (OK, lip-synched) the following lines: "My name is Steve and it's no wonder/I run like lightning, pass like thunder/So bring on Atlanta, bring on Dallas/This is for Mike and Papa Bear Halas/I'm not here to feathers ruffle/I just came here to do the Super Bowl Shuffle."

Feathers ruffle? That's using poetic license to drive directly into an 18-wheeler.

i wonder if we could do a lip sync reunion tour.. maybe open up for FF festival gigs..

This is Speedy Willie, and I'm world class.
I like runnin' but i love to get the pass.
I practice all day and dance all night,
I got to get ready for the Sunday fight.
Now I'm as smooth as a chocolate swirl,
I dance a little funky, so watch me girl.
There's not one here that does it like me,
My Super Bowl Shuffle will set you free.

i should mention..

We won two consecutive talent shows with that routine because of Mr. Hyden.

Steve stole the show with his saxophone. There's an interlude sax solo... Hyden would come front and center and rock it.. ending with a whaling, down on his knees, leaning back high note squeel routine that had Mrs. Kester and Foursland swooning and Mr. Goldsmith nodding in approval.. Steve Fuller only wished he had thunder like Steve Hyden.

Cool stuff. Mark and Steve are looking pretty cute. Is that Miller? I wish I could have seen the performance, although the 6th grade me might not have been been as supportive as I would be now.

Yes, Jen. Willie Gault, my favorite Bear as a kid.

I can't believe Packer fans were playing the Super Bowl Shuffle. I knew you guys were all secretly in love with the glorious Monsters of the Midway.
