The game "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" was created because of how many movies - some great, some random, some bad - the actor has appeared in, and how many other actors he has worked with. Without a doubt, Bacon's breakout performance came in 1984's Footloose, which featured one of the most iconic dance scenes ever put to film. It don't get much more 80s than this...

The Evansville Thunderbolts hockey team is hosting one of their most popular themed games - 80s Night - on Saturday, and to share the excitement, they recreated the now infamous Footloose warehouse scene. Here we see the Thunderbolts game emcee, Dan Katz, doing what any sane human would do when the Moving Pictures song "Never" is blaring - you dance!
