Last night at a women's basketball game the Band was challenged to a halftime basketball game versus the student spirit group called the CIA (Crazy and Insane Anteaters). Of course there was trash talk on both sides but they were expecting the band geek stereotype. We lost 2-3 but in the end they were surprised by the skills we were throwing down. I'm also not disappointed becuz they had 6 footers on their team giving them a vast height advantage when rebounding. I had a few assists and shot the ball twice. First time it hit the rim and rebounded. The 2nd time was when one of our team mates got greedy and tried going into a heavily defended key. Then when he finally passed it outside to me the defenders got on top of me pretty fast. Damn ball hogs...hehe.

I have known band members that could whomp on football players, and they were not wussy football players either.

Who ever said all band members are weak...

Nothing can beat a line (O or D) of burly, crazed TUBA players. Big, strong, and completely out of their minds with an obsession for destroying an opponent...

:twisted:

You see, our tuba players are all 5 foot 5, about 150 lbs. Its all about our Euphoniums. We are the big athletic buffs of our group. I personally play B-Ball, and am glad to hear about Mike's victory (in context of the post) over the band geek stereotype. Not everyone sees the band "geeks" who play sports and have a good time doing it.

This weekend, I was playing B-Ball, because I play for a league, when I went to go for a block, I dislocated my shoulder. I popped it back in, but it was so cool, and hurt like a mother. I am now in a thing called the "IMOBILIZER." So I am typing write now and it sucks. However, I love this site. But it was cool, because I hurt myself severely, and it was no where near the band. Oh yeah, LOW BRASS ROCKS!!!
