- to continue the "Things I've been enjoying recently that aren't hockey" theme (Finals start tomorrow) I'm seeing Van Halen tonight.
An extra ticket came through through a bunch of buddies of mine, and I decided to go. I was excited about it all morning, and then I had a depressing thought.
I saw Van Halen 20 years ago.
I'm not 35 yet, so it's slowly becoming a more common occurrence that I can say that phrase. It was one thing when I said things like "I haven't been on the monkey bars for 20 years!" But when it's things that I still like to do, that's a milestone, there.
Not to knock the monkey bars, but you know what I mean.
Yep, I saw Van Halen 20 years ago.
Of course, it's better than "30 pounds ago," which also applies, but still- Ooof.
Granted, when I saw them last time, it was on the "Monsters of Rock" tour, but times have changed. You know,other than that whole "guy named George Bush in the White House and a new Indiana Jones movie coming out" thing.
For one thing, in 1988, the Bruins were in the Stanley Cup finals.
