Memory Day: Snapshots

Continuing my Band Parents' Day theme, this picture was taken 21 years ago today, on September 25, 1998.

I was in Marcy's rank this year. To my right is my future roommate, Kelley "Casper" Corbett, who was assigned the nickname by section leaders who went a little overboard with the number of random nicknames sprinkled across the trumpet section that year. (Kelley's nickname was given because he was super-white like the eponymous ghost).

We're all in dance block formation in this picture although I can't remember if this was a dance to Crosstown Traffic or Zoot Suit Riot. (The latter dance was quickly rewritten in the last 24 hours before the halftime show -- no one could "rock step" because rock stepping is dumb).

After practice this day, I went to the "Pizza Inn" for dinner with my parents (a restaurant with cleanliness levels slightly below a Cici's after lunch rush). The following day, we spelled MOM and DAD on the field yet again and the football team beat the Pittsburgh Panthers 27-7.
