Before we talk football, let's just make clear the REAL reason we attended the game at Gillette Stadium on Saturday afternoon:
We happen to be this trumpet player's biggest fans.
This is his Senior year!
We've been watching this guy in this group for four years.
We skipped the homecoming football game at home to be at the last UMass game at Gillette this season.
I can't say enough impressive things about the marching band at the University of Massachusetts. At 400 strong they truly are the pride and class of New England.
They put on an amazing show.
The football team gave us something to cheer about, too!
Here's one of their half-time numbers:
This one was performed at the Penn State game last month.
They are mesmerizing.
the football team WON their game against Eastern Michigan!
They're on a two-game winning streak.
The fans went crazy.
And then we settled in for the fifth quarter.
We love a good college football game.
And we love a good marching band even more.
