wolverines, bulldogs, trash-talk, cowbells and popcorn.

Standard

on a beautiful night

at the university of michigan

home of the wolverines

and the women

of the winning softball team

went head to head

with the georgia bulldogs

worthy adversaries

in the second game

of the ncaa regionals

IMG_0689

and we were lucky enough

to have seats directly next to

the alumni marching band

loyal, spirited, musical, happy

as they

jumped up

cheered

played

and

very

enthusiastically

trash-talked

the rivals

and

called the plays

 as everyone got in on the act

and

desmond howard

and sons

sat in

on cowbell

and in the end

the wolverines

were victorious

earning a spot

in the college world series

and

all the trash talking

 music

 hard work

 sweat

and

talent

paid off.

people are going to talk no matter what you do,

so you might as well give them something to talk about.

  1. I was in band so enjoy sitting with grown up band players, ha ha! I was never very good at clarinet but we use cowbells at the Columbus Clippers games, where there is even a song and a chant that says, “Columbus, ring your cow bells!” Oh, you were probably so happy to be out in the great weather at such a fun place to be! 🙂
