Fall 1997, 1st game in Chicago....

Before the game the band visits Soldier Field, and they had the press there because Jesse Jackson was there for something I dunno

~Jesse Jackson was there and DOC saw him, they both knew each other so they were talking...so the press wanted to take a picture of them both..So Jesse and some of the press people saw that DOC's Wife was there and they wanted her in the picture as well...

~DOC kept trying to rush the picture so she wouldn't be in it.....MOMME knew they wanted her inthe picture so she was giving DOC that look.

~PRESS kept pushing the issue that they wanted her in the picture...

~DOC, finally says "COME ON HO".....I was dying in the inside..

after they took the picture

~MOMME~ Says, "ya Bytch"

that killed me...I was like :lmao: the whole ride back to the Hotel.

well one funny experience we had here at UAPB was when Mr. Graham was really hot at practice and he called the band a bunch of p*ssies!:D I was like whoa:eek2:! I didn't think he had it in him! the whole band was in the stand cracking the "F" up and to make it worse he said it over the megaphone! he usually just creates a word from what I like to call the Graham's Dictionary, ya know words that make absolutley no sense at all. Like ...hmm let me think... :confused: :idea: ah yes my personal favorite Trifledike!:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: . The entire band is like wtf? If anyone, I mean ANYONE, can tell me what that word means there is a reward!:D

Now this may apply to various years......


Friday Night after BOTB in New Orleans.........
The band gets back on the bus thinking we bout to eat.

So we pull up to the hotel, ok we thinkong we he gonna let us change clothes to eat.......

it has almost been a hour......so a group of upperclassmen marches to DOC SUITE......

BANGS ON his door.....

Angry group~ DOC, are we going to eat?
hence the angry group is mostly from New Orleans.

DOC~ *come to the door in a NIGHT ROBE chewing on some food*...." Ain't yall from here(NEW ORLEANS)

A.G.~ Yeah we from here, but we came down here with you....bandmembers in the back of crowd yelling "Ya black BYTCH you better feed us" other people saying "LETZ get that BYTCH"

DOC~ is now getting nervous, "Well I tell ya what I'll do, meet me down stairs in about 30 minutes, and I'll give ya'' some money. SO the BLACK man gave us 10 dollars a piece. :(

Later on while walking down the hall DOC, stil can't see why we are made...He is telling the other directors " Aren't they from New Orleans? They can go home and eat"

ASST. DIRECTORS~ "DOC they are down here as a band, you have to feed them kids"

DOC~ And they so called CRAB BROTHERS....YOU are your brothers keeper aren't you? SO why in the hell the NEW ORLEANS FOLKS in the band can't take their crab brothers from out of town home with them and eat?

That black man is off the hook!!!!

*On the bus traveling to the game....*

Trumpets are in the back making a lot of noise, trippin' out, playing crap, yellin' and screamin'....*

Dr. Magruder: "Hey, hey!!!" "Calm dat' s*** down."

*Everybody knows what he meant except one trumpet player....*

*Trumpet player was still actin' a fool....*

*Dr. Magruder walks to the back of the bus, looks dude in the eyes and says....*

"Fool, didn't I tell yo' a** to stop talkin'. That's why everybody calls you dumb.........DUMBA**!!!!

Everyone on the bus died laughin'.

Everyone who's in the band knows who I'm talkin' about.

Now, this tripped us out...

Everybody has seen Doc in public....You know, with his hat tilted to the side, his tie crooked, yelling and cussing at the band. And before we went to Dallas, he has the audacity to say....

"Don't go out here and embarrass and humiliate me!!!":rolleyes:

Here's another one.....

At the start of the Jackson MLK Parade...

Doc (in this super burly, but yet calm voice):
"Take your gloves off. Gloves off. Gloves off. Gloves off. Gloves off..."

Mind you, he was standing right in front of me the whole time he was saying it.

I'm standing here looking at this man, like, "???" How many got-dayum times are you gonna say it??!!

<small>Some part of his brain must've malfunctioned....</small>
