PHOTO: Backstreet Boys visit Alabama's weight room
Your joke goes here.
Via longtime Tuscaloosa News reporter Cecil Hurt -- who surely didn't wake up this morning thinking "you know what, today feels like the day I break a story involving one of the most famous, most successful and arguably most influential groups from the height of the late-'90s boy band craze" -- none other than the Backstreet Boys took a tour of the Alabama weight room Tuesday.
From left to right, that's Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, two individuals who are not founding members of the Backstreet Boys, and Kevin Richardson. (If you're wondering, Richardson's "Engineer Football" T-shirt is from his Kentucky alma mater, Estill County High School. Thanks, Wikipedia!)
The news of "BSB"'s visit of course prompted a Twitter lyric-referencing frenzy. (Here's our contribution, such as it is.) Some of the highlights:
