Today was a really rough day, even for someone who has yet to make the band for the first time. It was really hard to watch the group that I have idolized for as long as I can remember get ripped apart and dragged through the mud. I mustn’t let this cloud the view of my dream though. I’m still sure as hell gonna make this marching band and I’m gonna be damn proud if I do because I will have made it into a row that has been dominated by men for years and years.
I’m sure this organization will pull together and make it through this because of the students that make it up. Despite the picture that report paints of the students in the band, of all the people I have gotten to know in the last year or so, I have never met a group of people more committed to each other and to an organization it’s self. I’m sure when the band for this year is announced they will pull together and have an outstanding season because all of this negative attention is just more motivation to prove that The Ohio State Marching Band is deserving of the title The Best Damn Band In The Land. And I’m going to do everything I can to make sure I’m apart of that.
I am very impressed at how clean and talented the Cadets are this year. But man I hate their show.
