Top Sport Songs and Friday Toy Memory

Happy Friday y'all! We made it through the oppressive heat yesterday and we have a great weekend ahead. I seem to like talking about the weather don't I?
Here's a random tidbit about me. The other day I was talking to my dad and he told me when I was really small child, I had one of those animals sounds toys where you pull the string and it makes the sound of barnyard animals. Apparently I was a big fan of cats first, then goats, the cows. I stuck with the cow obsession well through the 80's when it was popular to decorate everything in holstein cow print. Just a tidbit about me. Don't know why I decided to share.

(Some of the songs on this list are weird to me. Nothing says, "Yeah, I'm a fierce athlete" like Thriller! Just sayin. I've highlighted the ones I think DON'T belong on the list)

Friday Toy Memory: I was older than this but I remember this being a craze that I couldn't understand. Remember POGS? They were like little round discs that for some reason people thought it fun to collect. Why? Still dunno.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PogsHere's a video (I didn't preview it so I hope there's no objectionable language )
