LT Homecoming – one for the ages | September 24, 2018




hey! i had fun.  almost too much fun.


-pep rally.  thanks for those that helped a lot.  you know who you are.  i walked in the building at 5:48 am.

-school song!  #yes

-friday night mr. veren and i both had different gigs.  stayed up super late.  got to lane no problem the next day.  set up some new things.  feeling good.  i loved the outfit i had on.  haters are going to hate.

-game – great time or greatest time.  we went over to say hey to LP because that is what you do when guests are in your house – you welcome them.  it is called “kindness.”  pause for a few off the mark comments on this.

-i had to go get the command center.

-SENIORS – i am more proud of you than ever! majorette captains, flag captains! THANK YOU!  when homecoming is early it is a challenge.  this was not a bad show.  adam, cordell, izuli, bernie. wow.  came through in the clutch.

-haters are going to hate.  i ask you – all of the sudden you care about band now?  what about all the other times some of you never showed up to rehearsal and/or cared?  you are going to criticize what i am doing?  lets focus on sounding good first! so help me if i take some time to chat with parents and enjoy myself.  i am sorry that other people wanted to talk to me and that i looked like a boss and had a saber.  we played before the game, we marched in, we played the national anthem, we gave the break between 1st and 2nd to LP, we played a show at half-time, we played between 3rd and 4th and we played at the end.  if we played a ton during the 1st half i felt there was a chance we would have lost all our juice!  during 3rd quarter i thought we needed a brief rest! it was sunny and we were right in THE SUN!!  asia felton had to ask her boyfriend to a dance!!  ALSO, we don’t really play a lot during the game.  the offense has REQUESTED THAT WE DON’T PLAY WHEN THEY HAVE THE BALL!! ALSO, WHEN THE BAND IS ALL THE WAY TO ONE SIDE, LIKE WE ARE, IT IS HARD FOR THE REST OF THE SEATING TO HEAR US!! When LP is on the other side the music comes right toward us.  I had a non-band student tell me that they could hear the other band more.  i said thank you.  i paused, and was about to explain to him the concepts of physics but made a judgement call and felt he was not worth my time.  could we have played more – yes.  could we have played less – yes!!  at the same time we were getting destroyed! we didn’t have much to celebrate! you know?  some other seniors in the band just left and walked around! some of them took their uniforms off.  haters are going to hate.

-so i ask of you – why?

-last football game (for some of you) is october 6th.  what do you want to be your last memory of football games to be?
