    I think I found it. Eddie and the boys always said it was just the latest name they had bounced around in the studio from a license plate. Well, I was watching Cheech & Chong's Next Movie last night, and if you look closely at the license plate of the red sportscar Chong and Cheech's cousin take off in, guess what it says. I thought it was the coolest thing since the number 5150 was in my accounting homework. That movie's from 1980, so it could be it.

    Makes sense.
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it had to do with Dave's album.

    Ok that would be FAR to petty. Ya I know - this is Van Halen we are talking about; but I seriously doubt that this would be in repsonse to EAS.

    The Cheech and Chong thing makes far more sense.

    You gotta remember that Roth was king in those days. WB wanted Ed to fold the VH name after Dave left. They might have gotten the idea from a movie or whatnot, but they were just saying 'we're just as big and bad with Dave as we were with him'.

    The VH FAQ is one of the BEST VH sites around. No bullshit rumors there, anyway.
