The Official Over-the-Hill Roller Rink Birthday Party Thread

    Who's over the hill today, you ask?

    Well, Moddy's birthday is today (and the big man can't deny it fits. Happy birthday, dude!)
    Yogi Berra's birthday is today, too (and no one would be surprised if I started a thread to celebrate him, I'm sure.)

    But today is the day my darling Cadet turns the big 3-0. :D

    And even though I couldn't count high enough to stick that many candles in her cake, and I couldn't even drive yet when she graduated, I still wanted to let her know that she's the best thing in my life, she makes every day a happier one and there's no one I would rather grow old with than her -- even if she gets there long before me! Hell, I'd even pick her over ... baseball. :eek: (You laugh, but it's true -- of course, what I neglected to mention was that she never, ever makes me choose. I am the luckiest man in the world, for that and many other reasons that I discover again and again.)

    So before she finally sends back all those AARP cards she keeps getting, I'd like to celebrate her final days of youth with the party of her dreams: at the roller rink. Her only request is that BYH be the deejay, because they have such great affection for all those crappy pop songs that came out when I was in diapers.

    I'll get the ball rolling with this, umm, classic: http://tinyurl.com/qvra8q

    So post your favorite roller rink tune and your favorite roller rink snack, and let's get the party started.

    Happy birthday, Cadet! :-*

    OK, it was the 70s when I was going to roller rinks, but this was THE song for the roller rink back then.

    Happy birthday Cadet, Moddy and Yogi.

    Is there a blushing smiley face? Thanks, everyone! :)

    ( :-* ... that's for you, buckdub)

    And I really have been talking for a while about how the best birthday party would be at the roller rink with BYH as the DJ. But it's too hard to get everyone together when we live .. everywhere. Although I suppose we could have rented out the rink in Tahoe ...

    As for my contribution:

    Time to par-tay!

    Wait a minute...Buckweaver and Cadet are a couple? Nobody tells me anything!!!! :D :D :D

    DJing your b-day party would be an honor. There is not a song on the planet that reminds me more of the roller rink birthday parties my sister and I used to have than this:


    Happy birthday to one of the truly great ones here, someone who is even cooler in person than online!

    Better BYH be the deejay than some of us others. His crappy taste in music is more welcomed.

    (Dead to BYH now ... :D)

    Ya gotta admit, Sam, roller rinks were all about bad music and nobody loves bad music more than the dickhead.

    Meanwhile, happy birthday, Cadet! I always figured you were as young as Buck. Didn't realize you were robbing the cradle ;D

    Hey fuck all y'all! And here's another awesome roller rink song released before Buckdubs was even born!!!

    (This is probably the worst "song" ever recorded, BTW)
