A Thousand Words: Brown Band carolling and hot chocolate

The Brown Marching Brown outside Perkins carolling and handing out free hot chocolate!

Banned band not banned

We might have lost to Columbia today, but our band still wins in creativity, wit and the ability to draw phallic imagery on the field.

After shooting themselves in the foot ridiculing their own team, the Columbia University Marching Band (CUMB, yes, really, CUMB) was barred from performing in their game against Brown yesterday. The offending lyrics were sung after a 62-41 against Cornell.

(As a side note, the parody wasn’t even funny. Really? The best you’ve got is “We always lose, lose, lose; by a lot, and sometimes by a little”?)

However, after applications of the First Amendment that made our Founding Fathers repeatedly facepalm in their graves, the band was allowed to perform again in yesterday’s game.

Oh yeah, and then there was a football game itself. We lost, 35-28 in double overtime.
