Ah, man some of these are so wrong! People came to our football games to see the band and would leave after our halftime performance because our team sucked, usually. Or maybe because our band was pretty big for our small town, so half the crowd that left were band families. We didn’t have orchestra, though, so no fudes, but our marching band was military with corps flares and we TOTALLY got snubbed my senior year for NOT being corps. I loved it, and I miss it. Instead of a middle aged dude reminiscing about football, I’ll be reminiscent of my years playing trumpet.
