Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

I sure wish I had a TV in my office...AU Band to March in 55th Presidential Inaugural Parade

AUBURN – The Auburn University Marching Band has been selected to participate in the 55th Presidential Inaugural Parade following the inauguration ceremony of President George W. Bush on Jan. 20.

About 320 band members will participate in the parade, which Marching Band Director Rick Good describes as a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

“The students’ reaction has been awesome,” Good said. “They are really excited to be participating. I told them in 20 years they can look back and say they were part of history.”

This will be the third time the AU band has participated in a presidential inaugural parade. The last time was in 1989. Coincidentally, Good said that same year the AU football team won the Southeastern Conference championship and played in the Sugar Bowl. It also happened to be the inauguration of the senior George Bush.

The AU band was the only one from Alabama invited to participate in the parade. The only other group from Alabama invited to participate is the Mobile Azalea Trail. [...]

Congratulations, kids!
