In Response to: Yo, Band!

The greatest audience response that I ever experienced as a band member was the final line of the 1993 PUB halftime show at Harvard Stadium: “This score just in from the Nobel Prize Committee: Princeton 3, Harvard nothing.” The Princeton side roared; where else could such a line get such a response?
