Yes, it’s time for football! Thousands of drunken fans, crowding into scorching hot bleachers and yelling themselves hoarse as they take sips of their $4 Cokes spiked with whatever they could sneak in the stadium. Oh, and there’s a game too.
But I always loved hearing the Redcoat Band. They always do a good job of warming up the crowd and creating a fun spirit in the midst of a difficult atmosphere. I’ve had a few friends in the marching band over the years and it never ceases to amaze me the amount of work they put into putting on a great show.
When you think about it, the Redcoat Band plays in front of more people than any other band in Athens. How often do you get to play a stadium gig? That is broadcasted live on t.v.? Yeah, they’re pretty badass.
So whether you’re pre-gaming from 5 p.m. today until the game or you’re getting the hell outta Dodge, just remember to drive safely and have some fun.
