"We close our show tonight with a quiz: What do academy award winning actor Art Carney, Jerry Mathers of Leave it to Beaver, horror film great Vincent Price, TV legend Dick Clark, comedian Jerry Lewis, and singer Cher all have in common? They were guests on the same 1960's TV series. The name of that series? BATMAN"
With that intro, I trip all over my tongue, and the Rittman Indians Marching Band have officially started their halftime performances for 2006.
But the 35 or so students that make up the band did a fantastic job in entertaining the home fans last night. Their performance of the national anthem during pregame was thwe best that I've heard in the 6 plus years that I've been announcing. All the marching formations look to be close to mid-season form.
I am really looking forward to the next two months of home halftimes and band shows. If any read this and have October 21 free, make the trip to Rittman and see this year's Indian Band Revue.
