Misstepping marching band gets a second chance

Misstepping Marching Band Gets a Second Chance
A high school marching band that took a tumble last autumn got a second chance to prove its talent.

Usually football players are the ones who fumble on the field, but back in September, it was Lake Travis High School's marching band.

'GMA' paired the tripped-up marching band with one of the best directors in the business: Ohio State University's Jonathan Waters.

Before the band's big performance on February 24, the school district's Communications Director said, 'This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase not only the Lake Travis High School band, but the high school and the community as well. We expect a great turnout.'

We're sure the crowd was just as impressed by the band's latest performance as we were. Bravo!

The original was cool. Glad no one was hurt, but cool non the less.

Yay for Marching Bands! ESPN should air the college bands at half time. They all work so hard and the moms would really appreciate it! (But instead they just go to a blank screen or talk too much) They didn't even show the bowl game half time shows. That's just mean.

So why didn't you SHOW their second chance performance?? All I saw was a reprise of the tubas falling. How insensitive can you get?

Guess your the ignorant one, a sousaphone is a tuba that is carried on the left shoulder.

There's always that 1 moment in our lives we wish, either didn't happen, or it happened to someone else. Hopefully down the road they will have an innocent laugh, but I bet the first to tumble is still mortified. Feel badly for him/her.

Accidents happen, we're human. That is why highly trained athletes still drop passes or fall on the ice. To berate them for a misstep is and of itself a misstep.

It's a nice human interest story. So to answer your question, I would say that a great deal of people who like to hear something positive from time to time are the ones who care.

This band is beautiful and fun. In the superbowl only a few top marching bands are needed for the halftime.
We need a constutional amendment to keep all Hollywood acts and political causes out of football games. It's become obscene the way the rich owners are screwing with the game and ruining the fan's focus.
