    Default ADKOT Promoted At NBA Game

    I was at the Rose Garden Arena here in Portland, Or. last night, for Heat vs. Blazers game, and during a time out the p.a. announcer says "hey Blazer fans, Van Halen is back with a new c.d., ADKOT, etc..., and we're giving away the c.d. tonight...", then a blimp is flying around and dropping envelopes with vouchers for the c.d., with the album cover art displayed on the big screen and "Outta Space" blaring over the sound system, pretty cool. Has anyone else seen something like this? I wonder if it had more to do with ESPN televising the game.

    Probably more to do with ESPN promoting the new record if anything, but hey it involves two of my favorite things in life: Van Halen and the NBA! The Lakers should use Bullethead as their opening theme if they make it to the Finals! lol

    My favorite NBA team is the Celtics... This year, I'm thinking that they could appropriate "Beats Workin'."

    ("Blood and Fire" would've been my ideal, but it doesn't seem appropriate.)

    Down in Flames would have been appropriate for the Blazers last night. Lebron was NASTY.

    Nice having the Vanilla Gorilla back on board though. He was a +10 in that game.

    Yeah, why I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this in another city. Heck, VH isn't even stopping in Portland on this leg. Poster who said it probably had more to do with ESPN may be right.

    Game was on TNT not ESPN last night...so that must be something the Blazers did on their own.
