The Atlanta Hawks have got some GUTS. CBS Sports has reported that the basketball team is hosting a special ’90s Nickelodeon-themed game night.
The game, Hawks v. Bulls, will be held on January 9th.
The game night will “feature fan activities based on the network’s shows from the 1990s.” Attendees will be able to participate in challenges from classic Nickelodeon shows like GUTS and Double Dare. The former’s trademark slime will feature heavily in the proceedings.
’90s Nick is in vogue at the moment. Recently, the network announced that they’re considering revivals for shows like Rugrats and Hey Arnold!. And last month, Variety reported that Nick would be reviving Hey Arnold! for a television movie.
From the Atlanta Hawks‘ website:
The Atlanta Hawks and Nickelodeon will bring activities based on the network’s most beloved iconic ‘90s shows to Philips Arena, giving attendees a chance to live out their childhood dreams of participating in challenges from GUTS andDouble Dare.
“A significant part of our fan base, millennials, grew up in the ‘90s on Nickelodeon and have great memories of shows like Salute Your Shorts and Hey Arnold!,” Hawks and Philips Arena CEO Steve Koonin said. “Now those fans have their own kids that they bring to the games. This night gives them a unique way to share a little bit of their childhood with them, creating new memories.”
Alongside meet-and-greets and photo ops with Nickelodeon costume characters like Rugrats’ Chuckie, Tommy and Angelica, and the Temple Guard from Legends of the Hidden Temple, expect Hawks Alumni, including Dominique Wilkins, Theo Ratliff and Duane Ferrell, who ruled the boards in the ‘90s to be on hand. The evening’s festivities will include special in-game giveaways and a few secret treats round out the theme night.”
