Do these signs hit home? Because they certainly do for me.

If you did marching band in high school, you know what a big portion it was in your life. It definitely leaves an impact on you. Once a band geek, always a band geek.

If you can relate to some of these like myself, you were most definitely someone who lived for high school band!

1. When you hear songs on the radio, you decide if they would make good show music

Would this song do well on the field?

2. It annoys you when people walk out of step with one another

You start with your left foot!

3. You catch yourself roll-stepping when trying to balance something

It actually does work

4. While people focus more on football, you're eager to watch the band perform

"No, just here to see the band perform"

5. You know one more time does not mean one more time

It's a lie

6. You cringe when you see mistakes in shows (that no one else can detect)

Could you not hear how flat that was??

7. Your non-band friends don't understand when you talk about marching band techniques

What does 8 to 5 mean??

8. Watching your old shows brings back so many memories

How did it fly by so fast?

9. You catch yourself walking in time with music

Walking? More like marching

10. Your heart will always be passionate about music

That will never change

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium.
