Five minutes of funk. 1984, the 6th seeded VCU Rams squared off vs. Reggie Lewis and the Northeastern Huskies in the 1st round of the NCAA tournament. VCU wins on a Rolando Lamb jumper at the buzzer but the final 5 minutes features Lamb v Lewis in a great back & forth:
Meanwhile in 1984, the Peppas weren’t yet the Peppas we’ve come to know & love but a few hundred miles up rt 95 in Brooklyn, Whodini was releasing their “Escape” album with the classic track “5 minutes of funk”. Players riding to these games w/ headphones, heads bobbing…yeah, pretty sure this was on repeat mode for most of em:
All of this made us wonder. The VCU athletic band (Peppas) and bandleader Ryan are known for being unconventional…and they already have a DJ. Might we hear them play some Whodini at the 2016 Atlantic 10 bball tourney? Imagine the Gold Rush Dancers moving to this? OMG.
