    MLB: World Series, game seven, the program started with "ERUPTION."

    NFL: Denver and New England, "Right Now" was played.

    NHL: San Jose and Chicago, a fight broke out, when it was over and the two were in the penalty boxes, the played "Somebody Get Me A Doctor."

    What was funny is that I didn't even notice it, my son caught all 3 of them. He just turned nine.

    This just proves that Van Halen music is TIMELESS!
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Ive got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Yes I was pleasantly surprised to hear Eruption (in it's entirity!) before the game last night.
    I had several thoughts going through my mind at the time:
    1. Not bad for a piece of music recorded 25 years ago. There's probably not another instrumental that can deliver the power and fury encapsulated in that little timespace.
    2. Seeing the Orange county references made me think how cool it would have been to see Van Halen back in the pre-signed club days.
    3. I had a vision of Ed, Al, maybe a few buddies, sitting around the Big Screen watching this at the same time I was - what the hell goes through Ed's mind when he hears his signature piece?
    4. As the last note faded out I was thinking what a revolution that created and how I miss the fact that as music gets farther away from guitars there will never be anything like it again.
    5. Play ball!

    I was going to make a comment about this a few weeks ago. When the Kansas City Chiefs played at San Diego, I heard Van Halen playing at the stadium after almost every commercial break. They played "Right Now" quite a few times during the Denver/New England game. It seems the might VH is being played alot lately. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Speaking of sports and Van Halen:

    Friday night I was at the Lakers - Kings game and when the Lakers hit the floor before the game, the intro to "Right Now" comes on (as it has for years before every Lakers game), then on Saturday I was at the UCLA - Stanford football game at the Rose Bowl and before UCLA hit the field, again "Right Now" intro was played.

    L.A. area teams seem to have a thing for Van Halen!

    I went to the Jets/Vikings game two weeks ago, and after every Jets TD, "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" blared through the stadium (the "hey hey hey" part).

    I saw a preseason game too this year, and they played parts of 3 different VH songs at select points: ATBL, HFT, and one other one that I can't remember.
