This is my confession: I'm a total band hag.
Like seriously? I can sit through an entire football game—one with the teams sloshing around in the mud, trading touch downs like kids do candy—and stay totally focused on the band. I love to watch them trade songs with the opposing team's band, and especially when the band leader has a little flavor and struts his stuff all around the field. And don't let the band play something I like; the band for Mazi's past football season bumped Earth Wind & Fire's "September," and the O'Jays' "Love Train" something lovely, and after halftime, they played a rambunctious, New Orleans-styed rendition of "Jesus Lifted Me" while they made their way back to the stands.
I loved every minute of it—so much so that at some games, I, a former flute player in my high school band, found myself taking way more pictures of the tuba players and the drummers and the band leaders than I did the football players and even Mazi. I thought it would be nice to show off my shots on Wordful Wednesday. Enjoy!
