(for thos who don't know, I play trombone in the vandebilt Catholic highschool Regiment)
Well my final showcase is over. Marching band is over. And im going to miss it. We placed 5th over all, but i dont care what we placed i had fun. We all know we had a great run through but lets just start at the beggining of the day. We arrived at IHOP at 8 for teh senior breakfast which was fun me andrew stephen and barry (occasional eddie) talked about alot of stuff which was fun. Left there and got to school. not much hapened then. Before we left we had a talk with the directors and staff. i almost lost it. it wasreally cool when they all talked. Vandebilt has never had such a great staff ever. So we get on the bus and get situated and im ready for some mario kart, plug in ipod and first song that comes on is Caught in a Web-Dream Theater (put on random shuffle now) and ironically the second song was Lie-Dream theater. Same album and same band. Im like "WTF?" So I piss justin off for closing the server before he gets in, I start of crap but then move up. And me and kelly just start poking each other and stuff XD. Get there warm up and all that have a kick a** run to us and then back to teh busses. Go on the field for awards and what do you know our percussion is 1st in the freaking state. Good job guys you kick a**.So we're standing there for about 30 minutes by 15 my feet were numb but they get to the top ten.
10th through 6th-blah blah blah
4th through first- blah blah blah
see i dont care that we got 5th we kicked a** and our percussion did great. Just imagine how good the ba nd will be next year.
Anyway i just wana say im really gonna miss this kinda stuff. Showcase is always the most fun thing you'll ever do in marching band. Seeing the stadium for the first time and marching in it is so much fun. And that feeling you get walking back up the tunnel is just awasome. So in closing ill say we did great no matter what ******** judge says otherwise (we acctually had a judge say we did the best((he just walked up outa no where)). i always say Judges can shove it up there a** cause as long as you had fun getting to where you are you are champions in your own right.
P.S. Never shall the Vandebilt band suck, no matter what anyone says.
and in the words of god YAAAY BAND!!!! XD
