My older brother Dan had some tickets for the UofM Gopher Hockey Game last night. A very boisterous crowd of maroon and gold was there to enliven the mens hockey team. Young spirits and school cheers drove the excitement to a continuous frenzy. Cheerleaders, a coordinated booster section and the wonderful UofM band, all contributed to the contagious spirit of the game. With all those horns, tubas, trumpets and trombones, the band made any rousing rendition, a song of triumph. They sounded so good I had to get a closer look. So with my new pocket Nikon P7000 I headed over to say hi to the band members. Go Gophers!!
