Yesterday was the Padres home opener. Per annual tradition, the company I work for let us leave work early, tailgate and go to the game for free.


I don't care at all about sports. In fact, I have no idea who won. But it's fun to hang out with my friends, eat nachos and drink beer. There have been home openers in the past that have gotten pretty wild, but this one was very laid back. I did see the best mullet ever. So there's that.

Tailgate Best.  Mullet.  Evar.

I heard the song "Dreams" on the Howard Stern show the other day. I've never been a big fan of Van Halen, but I though, "Hey, this sounds good!" Based on that thought and [livejournal.com profile] 50poundnote's influence, I listened to the 5150 album a few times on Rhapsody. I was sold. $7 on amazon, free 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime.

Product Details

It's my understanding that 5150 is the first Van Halen album post-David Lee Roth.

I was going to say that I can only handle Van Hagar (the Sammy Hagar era), but I remembered a time a few years ago, when Howard Stern was still on rock radio. On my lunch breaks, after the show would be over for the day, I would listen to the station's afternoon programming. For a time, that station played a lot of old Van Halen. Panama and Running with the Devil. It was fun.

Are any of you Van Halen fans?
