2012 pregames

Our announcer for the year is Nicky Robinson ’15.

9/15 at Lehigh

Lehigh did not allow us a pregame show, and forced us to completely rewrite our halftime show. Losers.

 

9/21 vs. Georgetown

Whenever, wherever, however you need it – it’s the Princeton University Band!

(Band marches on to “The Princeton Cannon Song.”)

To get a better understanding of Georgetown, the Band decided to take a trip there. We learned quite a lot:

  • We met the King, George the 69th.
  • We were surprised to see not a single popped collar, though we did see quite a few arkhaligs.
  • There was a remarkable prevalence of foreign language speakers.
  • Everything had a very “former Soviet republic” kind of feel. Like living in Wilson.
  • We were extremely surprised to find that the food wasn’t terrible, though people kept trying to give us goulash.

It wasn’t until later that we realized we had accidentally ventured to the nation of Georgia, the Unitary, Self-Presidential Republic. Well, going with Georgetown’s motto of “Both Into One,” they may as well combine the two places. How different could they be?

For all we know, they were named for the same George. Think of all the Georges in the world:

  • Town
  • of the Jungle
  • Takay
  • Clooney
  • Gershwin
  • Washington
  • Harrison
  • Thoroughgood
  • Jetson
  • Curious
  • Feeny
  • Lucas
  • W. Bush
  • Castanza
  • Lopez
  • Weasly
  • Foreman
  • Michael
  • Orwell
  • Stephanopolous

And the Double-Double Rotating Prince!

(Band forms Double-Double Rotating P and plays “Going Back to Nassau Hall.”)

Everyone please rise for the presentation of the colors by the Princeton ROTC, and the playing of our national anthem by the Princeton University Band.

(ROTC comes onto field. Band plays “The Star Spangled Banner.”)

Run away Band. Everyone knows that you don’t really speak Georgian.

 

9/29 at Columbia

Hey baby, did it hurt when you fell from the Princeton University Band!

(Band marches on to “The Princeton Cannon Song.”)

Hey Band, look behind you; it’s Columbia!

(Band plays parody of “Roar, Lion, Roar”)

You know what’s awesome? Cute animals in cute situations.

  • A slow lorris with an umbrella
  • Red pandas in the snow
  • Baby pandas sneezing
  • Puppies in any context
  • Hedgehogs in tubes
  • Kittens in cups
  • All dogs that aren’t pugs
  • Manatees with their noses all smushed against the glass so they can see you better and be your friend
  • Teacup pigs in teacups
  • Dolphins in propeller hats
  • Miniature whales in miniature oceans
  • Any animal that isn’t a bunny wearing bunny ears
  • Bunnies wearing bunny ears
  • Ducklings being blown over in the wind

And the double-double rotating Pooh and Piglet!

(Band forms Double-Double Rotating P and plays “Going Back to Nassau Hall.”)

Run away Band. You’ll never be as cute as those animals.

(Band scrambles off of field.)
