Has anyone ever asked you the question: What's something that no body knows about you??
Well, here's my answer to that question: I was a 'back-up'* dancer for Whitney Houston at the World Cup in 1994.
She said what? Yep, in 1994, along with thousands of other kids from LA County Schools, I danced at the final World Cup game. Kinda cool, and oh so RANDOM.
I remember spending some long ass summer days taking a bus to a football field in downtown LA to learn the dances and then the craziness that was dancing in front of thousands upon thousands of people at the Rose Bowl.
These are the only pics I have that document that time (I am the one on the right):
And through the power of the Internet and YouTube, I found a couple of the videos. You aren't going to see me- but I do remember being one of those dancers in front the stage wearing a purple skirt over our white outfits (see about 45 seconds in). The best part- I totally remember the dances and Whitney and Pele running by us holding hands.
I also remember that everyone accused Whitney of lip singing even back then.
Anywho, that's my random flash back Friday. Hope everyone is going to be cheering on the USA tomorrow at 2:30 EST. Personally, I am a bit obsessed for Donovan- can we say HAWT?
*I use back-up very very very loosely.
