    Default Official Card Carrying Member of VHLINKS

    All right. Here's the deal. I've been waiting to see the Mighty VH with the Diamond one since I was 9 yrs old. Saw opening night in Charlotte with my buddy J, one of the better nights ever. Saw them in KC, not as stellar, but still a blast, 6th row. Tonight is different. They're in my back yard. I keep picturing my brother seeing them here in St. Louis in 84 when they ruled the planet. Tonight they are here. Point is, I couldn't sleep. I watched 84 Montreal boot and Philly 07 night 2 boot last night with some beers, woke up about 5:00am thinking about tonight. So I'm all jacked up with VH thoughts. Keep that in mind...

    This may be the gayest idea I've ever had, or it may be the coolest. I'm sure you guys will let me know real quick. WHAT ABOUT A PLASTIC CREDIT CARD TYPE THING THAT SAYS OFFICIAL MEMBER OF VHLINKS? There it is. That's the idea, for better or worse. Tonight I hope to meet bsbll4, cokemach1, mojavebassmann, etc... How clutch would it be if we had 'fan club cards' with our names we use on em. Another example where it would be cool; when we were in Charlotte, we ran into some guys from Arkansas. Dude had almost the same VH tatoo I do. So we took some pics and hung out for awhile. He belonged to eddievanhalen.com and was meeting up with a bunch of people from that board at some bar. How cool would it be if I could of showed them my card from vhlinks? Another part of my brainstorm is that we could pay for them as donations to Brett and or the preservation of the vhlinks in general. You could have a premium member logo on the card just like we do buy our names when we post. We could put the year on the card so you have to keep renewing to keep current. I'm sure someone on the board could figure out a kick ass design for it. The single guys out there could use it to pick up chicks. When one us gets pulled over for speeding, 'accidentally' pull out your VHLINKS card instead of your license. If the cop is a VH fan, maybe he'll let you off with a warning.

    All right, enough. You get the point. By the way, if for some reason they don't show up for the concert tonight, forget I ever typed this post. (just kidding, I think) I'm well aware that I've put way too much time thinking about this. I'm also aware that I'm probably too old to be rambling on about Van Halen, but fuck it.

    I knew it was dorkish, but I'm excited. VH is probably sitting in a hotel 20 minutes from my house; that's my excuse for weird posts.

    Yeah, that's pretty much how I'd expect it to go.

    $5.50 for a Waborita? I wish. Is that a shot-glass size price?

    I commend your enthusiasm. Don't know about the card. I don't even want to own up to my drivers license sometimes.

    And wouldn't it be cool if we could get discounts with the card like at Guitar Center, Karate Depot or at the supermarket for M&M's (discount doesn't apply to brown ones).

    Interesting idea. Not sure how well it'd fly outside of this place tho.

    btw - if you come up with actual cards, I'm so in.
