Whenever I’ve been fortunate enough to make it into the stadium — as opposed to passing out at my tailgate spot — halftime traditionally signals it’s time to make a rather epic, queues-be-damned trip to the concessions stand. Prior to all the second-hand smoke hysteria, I might even try to sneak in a quick, calm-the-nerves cig before heading back to my seat, but, alas, those days are long gone.
See, I’ve never been terribly taken by marching band-laden halftime shows. There’s only so much a band director can do with the alphabet, after all, and I guess my ears aren’t quite discriminating enough to appreciate the finer aural attributes one college and/or high school marching band may offer over another.
Then again, I’ve never been treated to the relative awesomeness of whatever school/group/organization came up with this display in Hawaii over the weekend. If I could just get more of this between the 2nd and 3rd quarters, my waistline — and lungs — would probably be very grateful.
The kick was good, by the way…
Thanks to DBJ for the tip
