More Harvard Band: The Next Generation

"Nerd Alert?" Couldn't be prouder, thanks Fox Sports.  (The exploding White House from the movie ad is a bonus.  And as Rick Minard '77 noted, it would have been cooler if it had been Lowell House exploding, but nobody who watches Fox would have gotten the joke.)  Plus the kid got his first quote in The New York Times.

Harvard Beats New Mexico, (29 + 39) - (29 + 33)

That's our son holding the baton at the bottom right of the photo.  Better quality (and the caption) available here.

We now await the Harvard vs. the-Harvard-of-Tucson game on Saturday.

The Old Band Returned (Video Finally Available)

Here's the Harvard Band pregame and halftime show from the 2012 Bucknell game when The Old Band (we're no longer just Crusties, and the Seventies Will Never Die!) returned to march with the callow undergrads who refused to get off our yard lines.  The HUB blog claims this show was posted on October 31 but that's, dare I say it, wrong.

The Old Band credo: Past performance is no guarantee of future results.



Not necessarily the worst show ever, but one that certainly deserves consideration, and proof that raising the drinking age to 21 wasn't an entirely a good thing.  I helped spell those words only 4 months ago and I can't tell you what most of them were (I got 2 out of 9. What's that translate to an SAT Verbal score?)
