I grew up an NCSU fan. My first recollections of watching ACC basketball was my father watching an UNC-NCSU game. Dad is a major UNC fan, but when watching that game, he pointed out David Thompson to me and said "there goes the best player in the country." So, I started pulling for State. Made for interesting family days during games, but Dad's team usually came out on top.
Van Halen, Van Hagar, you're right. The music of both was good. I just happened to attend a concert in HS, so it was Roth at the mike. Man, when I saw them when they were all in their prime, they put on a terrific show. Back when Eddie Van Halen still could move around all over the stage with ease, Roth jumping all over the place. And Alex, I dont know if his liver still functions. He went through an entire 5th of Jack Daniels during the concert, and then we found out that he generally drank an entire 5th by himself during EVERY concert. That cant be good on your liver.
