I have a friend who won the ultimate tourney recently at my school. He's been mistaken as the second best player in the world before which I thought was pretty cool.


James Madison H.S Class of 2020

Trombone player



2016 - EnLIGHTened

2017 - Nocturnal Creature

2018 - The Ascent

2019 - Under Construction



I love weather and music. Hot and steamy summers combined with marching rehearsal = heaven!

So I just wanted to start a thread for those of us who are equally passionate about things other than band. For me it’s Texas Ranger baseball and even more so, college softball. My middle daughter was a gifted athlete and she was an especially good softball player. She played select softball from 12 years on up and also played in college. We are still avid fans, and she and I are currently wrapped up in the Women’s College World Series. Anybody else watching?

I think it is good for us to like other activities.   I am a big USC and PAC12 Sports Fan(Congratulations to the Bruins in Softball) and while being assigned in England became a rabid fan of Manchester United and their great Coach Sir Alex Ferguson. He convinced me that great leaders can make average individuals great.  The fact is that great Bands in general are lead by Great Directors and that is why they usually win in contests, either Marching or Concert Wise.

I'm very late but I love softball. I missed the Women's College World Series this year. I also love Texas Ranger baseball so much that 3 of my 5 animals are named after former Ranger players.  Kinsler Murphy (Ian Kinsler and David Murphy) a now 6 yr old German Shepherd Dog, Mitch Moreland (called Mo) a 6 yr old maine coon cat, Joshua Hamilton is a 4 yr old Catahoula Leopard Cur. I wanted to name our 2 younger animals after Ranger players but My family vetoed that because we name our animals and the player is immediately traded. I also am very into all levels of Woman's artistic gymnastics. I attend as many meets as possible. I"m really happy that the next few years the Women's College Gymnastic Nationals are in Fort Worth.

Wow you are even more of a Rangers fan than I am I think!

You need to name your next animal Joey. :)

Travel... and I’ve had plenty this summer. So I feel like I’m trying to catch up here and I’m making comments on conversations that are months old... 😊😂

I know the feeling! I was gone all summer, so I just went back and read all of the conversations I missed.

NFL peeps where you at

 

 

Yes, I am an NFL fan.     However, no Cowboy fans in this house.  Go Pack Go.     Lot's of friendly competition at my work office :)

Outside of band, I do Graphic Design, and dabble in photography and video work! Funnily enough, I often find myself doing both for band more often than not. I also really enjoy Marvel, both comics and movies, and Godzilla/Kaiju in general. My favorite movie is a Japanese animated film called 'Your Name.', which is where my profile picture on this site comes from. I'm sure there's plenty I'm forgetting, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to say some stuff! I also have an Instagram for my Graphic Design and Video Work, soooo if any of ya'll wanna check that out, it's @wahajdesignsstuff!

Anyone watching FIFA Women’s World Cup?

I’m no Uber-feminist, but women’s sports absolutely do not get the respect that they deserve.

Put both my daughters through select soccer and coached both. So, yeah, I guess I'm kinda into the Women's World Cup. Women's fussball (yes I keep tabs on the German soccer teams) is so much more traditional and pure than the men's soccer nowadays. Like softball too.

Girls Rule!

Ha I’m watching Rangers baseball as we speak. I’m sad that the season is almost over but looking forward to attending a few games next year in the incredible new ballpark!

Wasn't a band geek until my oldest daughter converted me 7/8 years ago. Luv her for that by the way.

 

I was one of the guys who always crashed the band parties "to make new friends"...yes all my girlfriends were in band. Played baseball, football, soccer and was one of the original "Scaters" back in the 70's. I had a 8 ft tall trick ramp set up out on our street that brought all the kids in the neighborhood out to test their board skills. I guess that daredevil type atmosphere affected me some. In high school when I wasn't playing soccer or behind a camera, I was getting thrown off bulls and broncs and when that wasn't enough I got behind the wheel and took to the track.

 

Now days when work allows, I'm into photography (my passion since I was very young), video production & editing, 3d CGI & solid modeling. Which is what I do for a living, so I guess work is...fun?

 

I don't really follow traditional pro sports much anymore. They've all become too political and money driven. I'd just as soon take in a youth league, or high school sporting event. If I had to say I follow a pro sport, it would be baseball leaning toward the Rangers then the Astros, then who ever the underdog is in any particular game.
