Triumphant elephants

Yesterday MD and I attended the first college football game of the season. The band of the opposing team for the most part was very quiet and unimposing. However, when their team scored (all too often) the slumbering band would suddenly awaken, with brass instruments dancing to and fro, side to side, like vigorous, mesmerized elephants.

Here is a good example of how they looked as they announced to us, sitting across the stadium from them, SCORE!


For those of you who care (and you really shouldn’t), the above is a Holborn BB310.
