AC/DC does NOT rock Grandpa.

However he does rock in his own way to Mahler n'schtuff.

Yesterday to get him in the football spirit I made him listen to AC/DC's "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)".

Since we'd already had a field trip to Gillette Stadium in September, I wanted to convey how hair-raising it is to hear that song when you walk into the stadium. You really just want to start yelling.He gamely bobbed his head and pumped his fist a bit.

And I think he got it.
Though I think he would prefer "Night on Bald Mountain".

Well anyway, we then had a great breakfast at Doyles (blueberry pancakes!) and when I called him later he was watching the game all on his own.

So I guess AC/DC goes get him a little psyched for football.
