    In honor of my college graduation/Van Halen obession, I realized today that I've got to do something special to the ol' cap and gown. Well, as I'm driving over to commencement today, it's hits me. I decided to give the ol' cap the 5150 stripes. It actually looked kinda cool. Anyway, no less than 3 commencement marshalls, 2 people on the board of trustees and a good amount of graduates come up to me afterwards and say, "Van Halen fan, eh? They rock." Of course, a couple of the other students sitting around me were like, "That tic-tac-toe board on top of your cap is all messed up. Do you want me to fix it?" I wanted to show my love for my favorite band, but now I just hope I don't get sued!

    I don't know if my family got any pictures of me that show the top of my cap, but I'm heading home tomorrow so I'll see if I can get a shot of it.

    Cool idea.

    It reminds me of my graduation cap. I put on mine, "It's officially 5150 time!!!" Boy that was a long time ago.

    I wore a VH T-shirt under my gown at HS graduation.

    And at my graduation party I had a bowl of M&M's with the brown ones removed.

    Good times. [img]smile.gif[/img]
