Way back in the day,
I had the chance to return to the field this weekend as an alumni of the Auburn University Marching Band Flag Corps and it was just about the best weekend ever! We stayed in Auburn Friday night and I had to be at practice at 6:45 on Saturday morning. I quickly realized that it's a little harder picking up a flag when you haven't done it in so many years, but I think we managed okay! We had about an hour to learn both routines, which was hilarious for this old girl to try to do, but we mostly got it done. It wasn't a perfect performance by any stretch, but I had so much fun being back on the field. Enjoy the pics and video!
Auburn Flag Corps 1998-1999. I'm on the 2nd row, 2nd from the right. Check out those bangs!
It's kinda like riding a bicycle...you never really forget how!
Waiting for me to march back into the stadium, Jackson was having lots of fun with my flag!
Under Jordan Hare Stadium again after all these years!
Aubie came over to direct the alumni band, dressed to the nines!
After 13 years, it was just as much fun as it was then. Loved.It!!!
I'm the second flag in line.
P.S. I would like to thank God for bringing a hair straightener into my life. I only wish he had done it before I spent 2 years performing in front of 86,000 people every Saturday. That is all.
