So tomorrow night, Plano Senior will be playing Eastwood High school from El Paso.   Not sure if those not in the DFW area are 
aware of all of the drama surrounding this game, but it went to being "cancelled" by Plano due to security concerns (as the El Paso shooter went to Plano Senior), to
being back on again and being played at the Frisco Star Center (Cowboy's practice faciity, also utilized by the Frisco football teams).   

 

They are actually televising the game on WFAA (ABC) in Prime time and are advertising an "unforgettable" half time performance.   You can actually
watch the game, and this unforgettable performance by the PSHS band, on wfaa.com as they are live streaming the game as well on wfaa.com.  

 

My son isn't sure that it will be "Unforgettable", but they will be joined by the El Paso band (I think just a small pep band) during half time if anyone
wants to sign in and see it.   I love to see music bringing people together.    

 

They are also selling "Don't Hate In My State" T-Shirts which are pretty neat, if anyone is interested (WFAA, not Plano Senior is selling).  Profits to go the El Paso Victims fund.

My wife graduated from Eastwood in the 80's and we have lived there a few times over the years. she has been following this very closely - so glad that the game is back on - we just ordered a couple of the T-Shirts. thank you for posting. It is encouraging to see that this may bring these 2 communities together in a very special way

Thank you for sharing that info, Lynne.  I am going to set my DVR up so that I don't miss it!   I had no idea about all that back story.  I'll be saying extra prayers for you guys that tomorrow goes well and there is no security issue to speak of.  


Each day is a gift. That’s why it’s called “the present.”

I am very glad they decided to play the game, I wasn't sure why they cancelled it in the first place.  I think they knew it might be a big game and the previous location really wasn't set up for extra security and they were worried about it.

I had to ask my daughter if she knew that guy as he graduated a year after her at PSHS and also attended Collin college where she is at (she didn't).   It's just all so sad.   

 

I will also be watching the game from home.  My husband can't go and since I am still in a Neck Brace,  between driving and having a hard time managing in crowds, especially with lots of steps, I thought it 
would be best for me.    I know the Plano Band will just be doing their Tribute show (they do this every year), but with a twist.  I hope it meets the "unforgettable" half time show they keep advertising on the commercials,

my son is a little worried!

I am a PSHS Grad. from too many years ago (back when PSHS was it, PESH was not even built yet) and am glad they are going to go ahead with the game and televise it.   Tell your son not to worry about the show, having both bands perform on the same field will be very memorable and I hope will go a little ways at least in helping those affected by this tragedy.  I hope he has fun and enjoy's the game and performing!

It was quite a night last night for the football game, and a lot of money was raised for the El Paso victims fund and I think it was a great night of unity between the two schools.   I will admit however, since they were advertising

an unforgettable halftime show, when they cut to a commercial during the Plano Bands performance and didn't show the joining of the two bands to play the Eastwood school song I was a little disappointed because that was the coming together
of the two school bands, and their drill teams.   And even when they showed the bands, they talked over them.  

 

However this morning, the director sent out a link to the show.  If you go to 1 hr 38 min on the link below, you will see the start of the halftime show for Plano, an that leads into the joining of the two bands to play the El Paso school song followed by 

March Grandioso with the two bands (and drill teams)  as they march off the field.   If you have a chance, it is pretty neat.

Added a period at the end of the link to make it show up as a link (that is the secret way to link rather than embedding). Thank you for sharing this with us!
