OBLIGATORY HOMETOWN POST! Sorry, everyone, but I’m compelled by the power of nostalgia and the sudden vague stench of my old volleyball knee pads to post this clip of a flash mob dance party at my former stomping ground, Lyons Township High School in La Grange, IL. (That’s French for “The Barn.” Jealous?) Students and faculty busted a move to “Thriller,” Gaga, Beyoncé, “Don’t Stop Believing,” and more at an all-school assembly. It looks to be the biggest event at LTHS since a young David Hasselhoff (sadly our most famous alum) practiced eating cheeseburgers off the South Campus cafeteria floor.
I’m freaking out, man! I used to hang out in that multimedia booth (where the camera is) after the varsity girls basketball game and then pretend to help out with color commentary for cable access channel LT-TV during the boys game but really just eat a giant pink-iced smiley face cookie from Kirschbaum’s bakery. What? It was Pack the Place! I’ll stop now. Go Coach Weth.
