'PICK UP THOSE TOES!!!' --My band director

the most underappreciated team in any school.

a group of students who practice as many hours or more as any other team. A team expected to have every movement, head to toe, in precision while playing an instrument to a complex score by memory and moving across the entire football field forming perfect imagery all while wearing the most ungodly uncomfortable uniforms. and other than a claims by other members receive no recognition other the negative stereotyping
I've put more time and effort into perfecting my music, choreography, and technique then all of my classes combined yet no one even acknowledged our marching band won the state championship

The one hard, time consuming, learning experience that you wait all year for. Spending time with the boys, laughing at the trumpets, being molested by the low brass, never hearing the Clarinets. And making up stupid inside jokes and Callbacks. Hearing the phrase "Alright, one more time and we can have a water break! " from your director. But you never care. You enjoy it.
Why is the Football team on the Marching Band Field?
by Rawrnickasaurbree October 26, 2011
Life. You meet your bestest friends here and the whole band becomes your second family. Marching band is spent as work and play. You learn how to read drill charts, how to march CORRECTLY and IN TIME, and how to make non-band members be jealous of you. That's the work.

Band is also a lot of fun. The opinions of non-band members don't matter. Your fellow bandmates are the closest ones to you. You tell "one time at band camp" jokes, tell stories about when so and so screwed up, and just overall enjoy your time with your second family, the ones you love.

We work harder than the football team, we get more respect than the football team, and we practice longer than the football team. We are the only reason people come to the games. Don't listen to people who say band is weird. THEY ARE WRONG. BAND= LIFE. :D
(In a restaurant, two friends, one in band, one is not, are eating lunch.)

Dawn: I'm so excited to go to the football game tomorrow!
Jamie: Why? Our football team sucks! We're in last place too.
Dawn: Two words. Marching band.

1. The best and worst extracurricular activity you could possibly join.

2. A Package Deal!!

3. Better than the football team.
1. "Oh my god!" exclaimed Nina, "I had so much fun during marching band the other day!!" "But Nina," Tim said, "You were just complaining about how much you hated it two days ago!"

2. Set includes:

- At least two weeks of band camp

- Director(s) yelling at you to find your dot

- A complicated drill sheet/book

- Sometimes grouchy section leaders

- Unmanageable music

- No life

- Mandatory football games each Friday night

- Friends and memories you will never forget

- A new-found hate for the trumpet section

- MAYBE a trip to somewhere for a competition

3. Last year, the only reason why people came to the football games was to watch the marching band.
