The "kicked out of band" story
It was the fall of 1988. I was a sophomore. Not only was I in band, but I was a football manager with my cousin E.
So, homecoming comes around. Band director wants us to march in the homecoming parade. We decide to hop on the football team float, instead. No big deal, right?
Apparantly this ticked off the band director so much that when we went to get our instruments near half time of the game, he told us we wouldn't need them, because we were kicked out of band.
He also wanted to give us F's for the semester for doing so.
Fortunately, it got changed to "I" for Incomplete.
So, no more marching around in wet grass, no more wearing ugly uniforms, no more getting yelled at.
I think we came out ahead.
E, you can reply if I got the story wrong.
