esoteric sports reference to the election. Seems appropriate. Who remembers?

I do! I do!
The Stanford Marching Band is the only marching band in the country not affiliated with their university. Why? Because they keep getting into so much trouble!
On one occasion, they formed the shape of a giant penis and marched in and out of the opposing team's tunnel.
On another occasion, at the University of Oregon, they played Monty Python's Lumberjack Song and formed the shape of a chainsaw. A band member dressed as a logger chased another member dressed as a spotted owl. The University of Oregon later forbid them from ever performing at their stadium again.
During the early years of the Reagan administration, I believe at USC, they played the theme song from the Electric Company children's show and spelled out the word "KILLOWATT" on the field. After the song, the "O" marched off, leaving the rest of the letters.
On yet another occasion, probably apocryphal, the percussion section was accused of peeing on the opposing team's mascot.

FS, that Stanford play was one of the greatest, most memorable, screamingly funniest plays I've ever seen in any sport. I saw it on a replay from a video tape one of my kids got for our end-of-the-year- holiday of Christmas/Hanukkah (we call it Chronikkah).
Tarzan, LOL!!! I mean a "bent-over-almost-hit-my-face-on-my- keyboard-and-practically-fell-off-my-chair LOL." An BOAHMFOMKAPFOMCLOL (you saw it here first, folks, at Acronyms 'R' Us - - no copyright yet, so feel free to use it anytime) Thanks.

Tarzan, - ROTFLMAO!
I rememeber that game, FS. Against California, I believe. They ran the kickoff back for a touchdown thanks to interference run by the Stanford Marching Band having run onto the field prior to the end of the game.
Hah! Neurons #23-25 fired off simultaneously! There is some measure of memory left within this withered grape which sits perched upon my neck.

I belive it was the tuba player who got his bell rung......
Definitely a classic piece of footage!
