Oh, the humanity...

There's nothing sadder than a fallen tuba player.

But...marching backwards while carrying a heavy item is usually so easy.

Time to call in the back up tuba section

NC,

I was thinking the same thing. Like a turtle on its back.

Steve,

Marching backward while being a teenager is hard to do.

As a former bandie, I find this awesome. Everyone kept going. They needed to show the next minute - 'cause I bet the formation came back together and finished the selection.

By the way, they aren't Tubas. They are Sousaphones and hard to control due to the weight.

Low blow dominos.

New Olympic event: synchronized sousaphone diving.

The last time I heard that music was in Pee Wee's Big Adventure, which makes it strangely appropriate.

Gotta watch out for these sinkholes, man. They're everywhere.

As the videographer for the marching band -- mostly because playing viola did not make enough of a geek -- I respect the lack of laughter from behind the camera.

Back in the day, I was pretty good at getting past security into unauthorized places.

What isn't reported is that this was a memorial event at the tomb of the unknown bassoon.
