Before Wahlburgers. Before "Ted" and "Ted 2" and "Transformers" and "Boogie Nights." Even before his stint as a Calvin Klein underwear model, Mark Wahlberg was called Marky Mark, and he was a one-hit-wonder hip-hop star.
These were simpler times. "Seinfeld" premiered on NBC. Jon Hamm rocked a bowl haircut. The Super Nintendo was released.
This week, it seemed, albeit briefly, that we might return to those times again.
During an appearance with his daughter on "The Dan Patrick Show" Wednesday, Marky Mark was asked to rap for the first time in, well, a really long time
"Dad, I want to hear you rap right now," his 13-year-old daughter Ella said on the show.
