Go BAND, Go!

I heard about this on the radio and then came across it online. Just had to put it on my blog!

Go BAND, Go!


Girl beats off muggers with marching band baton

Thu Apr 30, 2:03 pm ET
QUARTZ HILL, Calif. – Don't mess with the marching band. That's what California authorities are saying after a 17-year-old girl used her marching band baton to beat back two would-be muggers.
Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Michael Rust says the Quartz Hill girl was walking to school April 24 when two men approached her from behind, tried to grab her coat and demanded money.
Instead, one got a punch in the nose and the other a kick to the groin. Rust says there's a clear message to take from the encounter:
"The moral to this story is don't mess with the marching band girls, or you just might get what you deserve. Final score: marching band 2, thugs 0."

that's what I always thought...don't mess with the band girls. Back in the day I figured the band could whip our football team...and there are weeks I still think that is true.
