6 Signs You're STILL Burnin' Up For The Jonas Brothers

6 Signs You're STILL Burnin' Up For The Jonas Brothers

There’s always going to be a little place in your heart for these boys and the time spent (stalking) following them.

The year is 2007. You’re reading your “Tiger Beat Magazine,” taking a quiz on which brother you’re destined to marry. All of a sudden, you see the opening credits to "Hannah Montana" on TV. The Jonas Brothers are guest-starring.

You squeal like the pre-teen girl you are and freak out because Joe just flipped his hair, Nick did a scoff, and Kevin, well no one is really in love with Kevin, but he’s part of the trio so you love him for it. The Jonas Brothers are now the biggest boy band since Backstreet Boys and N’Sync. It’s the first time our generation has seen a group of family members.

Now you’re a young adult and you are long past the days of these quizzes, magazines, and religiously recording these TV appearances. There’s always going to be a little place in your heart for these boys and the time spent following them. You’ll always remember the time you spent obsessing over them, and now that you’re older it’s fun to look back at those memories. Here’s how you know you were a true fan.

1. You had one favorite but loved them all

You were either Team Nick or Team Joe, and there was no in-between. Kevin was always someone everyone loved, but nobody really wanted to date him. And don’t forget the “Bonus Jonas,” Frankie. You loved him too and knew all about their family dynamics. The curly hair that Nick sported had girls swooning over him, and Joe’s pre-Justin Bieber flipped hair was somehow…magical.

2. Knowing every song wasn’t enough. It was knowing every music video detail

Between the four albums they gave us, it was easy to know every song. Every order of the songs. And possibly the length of every song. But their music videos were somehow the best part. You knew all the dialogue to the beginning of “Burning Up,” knew all the actions and situations in “S.O.S.,” and knew exactly when the beat would drop in “Lovebug.”

3. You somehow still get a little emotional when you hear “A Little Bit Longer”

Of course, it was one of a few of the slow ballads they gave us. But if you were a true fan, you know that the story behind it was the journey and struggle with Nick’s diagnosis of diabetes. As a spokesperson for “OneTouch Ultra,” Nick has been an influential speaker with his personal testimony with diabetes. As a fan, you loved him that much more for his influence on the topic and his bravery through all he had been through.

4. There was a period of time you didn’t know what the color of your bedroom walls was

If you loved them enough, you probably took every magazine you could get just to get the free posters that were inside. You plastered your walls with these posters and various pictures you found. Now that you’re older, the thought of these faces staring at you is a little terrifying, to be honest.

5. When Camp Rock premiered, it was the best thing to happen to Disney Channel

It was as if Christmas and your birthday collided when you found out the news that these brothers would be starring in the newest DCOM. When it premiered, you stayed in on that Friday night to watch it and envy a young, new star known as Demi Lovato. And if we’re being honest here, the storyline was pretty good, and the music it featured was even better!

6. You knew who they dated and hated some celebs because of it

When Joe started dating Aly from Aly and AJ, you may have thought they were a cute couple. And when he started dating Jojo it was the best pair since Jennifer Anniston and Brad Pitt. And then Joe broke hearts everywhere when he started dating Taylor Swift.

That’s when we all realized Joe was the player of all the brothers. But perhaps the ultimate dating duo was none other than Nick and Miley Cyrus. Fans did all the stalking they were able to just to see photos of them in public. And the most infamous photo one could find was the pair on a rollercoaster at Universal Studios together.

Hopefully, the walk down memory lane made the inner 13-year-old girl in you, smile. Those boys brought so much entertainment and excitement to every young girl’s life back in 2007. With the news that the brothers are coming back together to reunite once and for all, we can’t help but think if we should dust off our old posters and bring out the old merchandise.

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.

Know The Current Squad
