I had a conversation with my wife on Saturday as the AACC marching "band" came on the field. To me they are the worst marching band I have ever seen in my 42 years on God's green Earth. Worst ever, high school or college. She doesn't think they are that bad, bad, but not worst ever. "You like an all brass band, they're not all brass" she says to me. My contention is this, if you still need flag lines and/or baton twirlers you suck. Leave that shit back in H.S.. This is big time college stuff, not tinkertoy time. I also believe the "musicians" shouldn't have the music clipped to their instruments(their band may or may not do this, but it is another band pet peeve I have). Again, it is big time college stuff, memorize that shit. It has nothing to do with being all brass or not. Granted, I have been spoiled over the past 20 years watching excellence every week. Every band sucks next to TBDBITL, but TSUN's takes it to another level. I won her over when she saw the "guy" in the flag line. I pointed out he was the skinniest one of the flaggers, wondering out loud how they trained the pigs to walk on their hind quarters AND twirl a flag.
So, my question to the commentariat is this. Of you who have seen this dog and pony show before, what are your thoughts?
