Warm and Fuzzy

Yesterday afternoon when I went to the high school to catch a ride with the band, I was greeted in a different way. One of the girls gave me a hug and said she was glad to see me. Others said they missed me Friday night. A couple told me that I should have called someone and they would have gladly sent a ride. Since I was in a dangerous situation where I was stranded, I let them know that I appreciated their sentiment, but also told them that making it to the game wasn't important enough to put anyone in harm's way.

This is my 11th season announcing for the Rittman marching band. Each group of students are unique in their own way. They have also shown me that their parents have done a great job of raising them.

I return to announce every year because it gives me a chance to showcase one of my talents and because I love doing it. But the most important reason I return is that the greatest student musicians around, and their parents, the World's Greatest Band Boosters(tm), want me back.

Makes it all worth it.

I'm sure the half-time show just wasn't the same without you. But glad you are OK.

See you next Saturday for sure!! Bringing LuAnn w/ me.

it is that unsolicited response of appreciation that really makes it all worth it.

i knew they loved you, how could they not?
