Whether it's Throwback Thursday or just me telling the world, I am ready, if asked, to participate in the rumored Backstreet Boys/Spice Girls reunion. this photograph should get the ball rolling on the grassroots interest in such an event.

If you believe all the stories, there's been some talks to have a mega geezer tour featuring Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys. How much is real and how much is wishful-thinking is hard to say.

But I was a Spice Girl in the 90's. I was Old Spice, the most popular one. This photograph is from a special appearance I made in 1997 in Kalamazoo, MI. It was a good time.

As the song says, "Put me in coach. I'm ready to play, today."
