To the parent of one of the players on the visiting football team tonight who sent me an email telling me how rude it was for my band to play when your team had the ball...thank you for the compliment. The band program at this school was a joke in the past. We are now taken seriously and have repeatedly done well at competitions. I am honored that you think we play well enough to be distracting to your (apparently) sensitive football player. Have a safe trip home.
