Monday Morning V

What does The University of Southern California, The Ohio State University, and The University of Oklahoma all have in common? Each has a Band that plays an irritating little ditty during football games!

You've heard "Boomer Sooner" over and over again, ad nauseam during games in Norman, and even during some of their away games. It comes on over, and over, and over again, especially when the Band thinks that the chances of the team overcoming all obstacles against overwhelming odds is directly proportional to the number of times "Boomer Sooner" is played. Ditto for that simplistic three chord thing the USC Trojan Band plays, and for whatever it is that the OSU Buckeye Band plays, too.

I find myself hoping the opponent of either of these three prevails, no matter who they are playing. Team spirit is one thing, water torture by band music is another.

Are those as irritating as Michigan's "Hail to the Victors" and UCLA's whatever it is? Those two pep bands are tied on my list for "worst repertoire" simply for their repeated play of the one tune they knew, which, as General Grant would put it, is "not Yankee Doodle."
