1. Did you have any students in the All-State Band?
2. What was their chair position in the All-State Band?
Now, regardless of our current situation, you *know* there's going to be a DFA, or principal out there that is going to ask this. So in some cases, yes, there is more than ego at stake.
On an aside, I have also been asked, with greater frequency, these two questions:
1. What rating did your band get at Region Marching UIL?
2. Who'd ya beat at Region Marching UIL?
