....then maybe you're just a lot younger than me, lol.
But seriously, I can't tell you how happy I was to stumble upon this clip:
Was there anything better than heading into the stadium about an hour before kickoff, grabbing a Lykes hot dog and an ice cold coke, and listening to the Pride of the Sunshine crank this up as the players poured onto the field for warm-ups; orange helmets glistening in the sun?
Some of the young guns on here might not realize it, but we used to have a real band back in the day. Lots of brass and a real sharp sound. Unfortunately, I think that director left to go to LSU and we've never really been the same since, in my opinion.
I say we start a movement:
1.) More brass in the band.
2.) Move the band back up above the 50 yd line....the student organizations who own those blocks today clearly don't appreciate them, as they can't seem to get to their seats on time.
3.) Make "On Broadway" a staple of pre-game warm-ups again.
