Yes or BS — Things That Turn 20 This Year

We are now officially into the year of 2017. So let’s look back 20 years. The year 1997 saw the Green Bay Packers win the Super Bowl, the Florida Marlins win the World Series, the Chicago Bulls win the NBA Finals, and the Detroit Red Wings win the Stanley Cup. We also had a split NCAA National Championship going to both Michigan and Nebraska.

So here is a Yes or BS about things that may or may not have made their debut in 1997.

  • The show ‘South Park’
    • Yes – The 20th season finale was last month, but the 20th anniversary of the show is this August. The first episode aired August 13th, 1997.
  • ‘Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery’
    • Yes – The movie hit theaters on May 2nd, 1997
  • The Starbucks Frappuccino
    • BS – They started selling them 22 years ago, in 1995
  • The McDonald’s Monopoly game
    • BS – That game has been around since 1987, so it’s THIRTY years old this year
  • ‘Tubthumping’ by Chumbawamba
    • Yes – It came out on August 11th, 1997
