Every day is a holiday, but for Mean Girls fans, October 3 is special. Though the movie came out 12 years ago, it’s a film that’s stuck with pop culture in a very lasting way. We wear pink on Wednesdays, for example, and also October 3 is obviously the day Aaron Samuels asked Cady Heron what day it was. It was, like, a really big deal.
Plenty of sports teams celebrated what’s become Mean Girls Day on Monday with posts on everyone’s favorite digital version of high school: Twitter. The Golden State Warriors kicked things off for us by going right to the NBA’s reigning MVP. That’s right: Steph Curry knows what day it is.
The Chicago Blackhawks recreated the classic scene in the locker room, with goaltender Scott Darling taking the role of Cady and defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk doing an admirable Aaron impression. Well, he kind of just sat there, but it was still an admirable impression.
The Minnesota Wild integrated the Mean Girls reference in a tweet counting down the days until the season starts, which took some tweaking of a post they probably put in TweetDeck at least two weeks ago so we’ll give them credit there.
The Orlando Magic also know what’s good, getting their fans ready for a preseason game in the holiday spirit.
The Charlotte Hornets, meanwhile, acknowledged Mean Girls, but were more interested in showing off Frank Kaminsky’s dance moves.
Baseball’s social media managers are either preparing for the postseason or cleaning out their lockers today, so none of them appeared to participate. The NFL didn’t appear to care, either. That’s OK. They can’t sit with us anyway.
