First off, in 1973 ABC aired a show called “Superstars,” in which 10 athletes from different sports competed in a series of events to determine who was the best all-around athlete. After defeating heavy-weight boxing champion Joe Frazier in a weightlifting competition, Olympic Champion Pole-Vaulter Bob Seagren won the inaugural contest. Fast-forward to June 23rd, 2009, when ABC will air the remake, with some tweeks. Athletes will be paired with celebrities (seriously? we already watch them dance and work for Donald Trump), but Brandi Chastain is in it, and ever since she took off her jersey I’ve been in love with her.
Now the more unbelievable part:
What do Taylor Hanson (Hanson), James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), and Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick) all have in common? Tinted Windows. That’s what. Kevin will hate this band if only for the sheer fact that Taylor Hanson is in it. While I might not like their music, I gotta say they are, at the very least, interesting.
