While I listened to both, I prefered BSB. Still do actually. I've seen a Backstreet Boy perform in person. Kevin Richardson sang the National Anthem at the UK-UofL game in 2001. I couldn't see him very well as my friends and I were in the upper level and some 15 rows up. I loved New Kids on the Block. If I remember right, I had a few posters, almost all the cassettes (which disappeared somewhere) and a few puzzles. I was also a fan of 98 Degrees. When they first came out, I thought it was pretty cool that they were from a city that was roughly 2 hours from me (sometimes it doesn't take much to impress/amuse me :lol.
