We went to the stadium to watch the drum corps competition, part of the Hall of Fame festivities. A storm blew in right after intermission and we had to head for the parking lot to wait out the lightning. We ended up driving home because the show was canceled.
Band shows are popular here; I guess it’s because of high school football. It’s kind of like the TV show Friday Night Lights around here, except I think we take football more seriously. We have a live tiger for a mascot. We got Chris Spielman on a box of Wheaties when he was 16.
I wish I could stay for the first game, but we’re starting school earlier this year and we have to be back. I guess I’ll just have to follow it online and on Twitter and Facebook.
