"That's my Barney!"

I had my own Music Man moment last night, watching my son the freshman and the rest of the Mt. Lebanon Marching Blue Devil Band step off on its pregame show before the gladiators in pads and helmets took the field. A girl who I coached in youth soccer as a fourth grader (and who was the best player in town back then) -- now a junior, a soloist, and an amazing player. Short kids are tall kids. Awkward kids are confident kids. Man, this goes fast.

Oh, and . . .

Mt. Lebanon 23, Baldwin 13. The game wasn't as close as the score. But both sides played hard, and everyone shook hands afterward. Major kudos to the members of the Baldwin Highlander Marching Band, who wear very cool silver helmets, and sound pretty good, too.
