Big Surprise: Cal Band Caught

Last night at 4am, some Stanford students found their sleep disturbed by the Cal Band. Immediately thereafter, the Cal Band found its getaway disturbed by the Stanford Police.

However, I must admit that our band came off lame as hell in that video.

Congratulations to California, Pac-10 co-champs

Kal band is 0-3. 3 Years, 3 times caught. I laughed as they sat on the curb at 2am and watched the cops search their cars for 45 minutes. Then, I laughed again when I heard the cops followed them halfway back to berkeley to make sure they weren't vandalizing. Still, they come back for more. Co-champs in football, co-douches in band.

Enjoy your big empty football stadium, losers!

... of course the cops are going to catch them... why else would they stop unless they got caught? and then how else would it end? in high speed pursuit??? ... and our band did look lame in the clip, but thats because the video was cut that way, and some of the things they said were downright wrong... the Cal band plays Green Day too... I've heard it... everyone knows the Cal band is great and the Stanfurd band is an embarrassment to their school. Even Stanford students, faculty and alumi have said they feel that way. So their band is an embarrassment, their football team is an embarrassment, their coach just got fired, they pay tens of thousands of dollars a year more for their education and their campus is as ugly as my hairy ass... so much incentive to go to Stanford!... Go Bears!

Funny that you mention:
1) The Kal Band plays green day too... so the Kal Band copies Stanford? So what, your band arranges Beyonce pretty plainly. It doesn't make it interesting or different.
2) "Everyone" doesn't "know" anything about the Kal and Stanford bands. stanford students, faculty and alumni don't like the band, and all Cal students wanted to go to stanford and couldn't get in. If you generalize, I'll generalize. We both know neither of these statements is actually true.
3) Our "band" is not an embarrassment. In fact, if you weren't an idiot you would know that most of our student body supports our band, even through the current hard times.
4) Our football team is an embarrassment right now, but yours was embarrassing to you - you guys almost lost to us! Jesus, we all knew Stanford sucked this year, but Cal just has no balls. Our coach got fired - i fail to see how that reflects on our school.
5) Our campus is as ugly as your hairy ass? I'd say the entire world disagrees with you. Even your boring grey campus is more attractive than your hairy ass.
6) If people didn't think the extra $20,000 was worth it, they wouldn't pay. In Stanford's case, but not in USC's, the price reflects the value. Just ask the rest of america.

I guess I'll respond to your list with a list of my own:
1)What makes you think the Cal band copied the Stanfurd (I can misspell things too) band... does that mean all of the other college bands across the country that play Green Day copied you too...? and I don't feel that being different is what should be important, its about fulfilling your obligation to entertain the students, faculty and alumni and inspire school spirit rather than your desire to entertaining yourself (not to say that both can't be achieved at once, but the former should be put above the latter)...
2) Sorry to generalize, and you're right not EVERYONE knows that EVERYONE is embarrassed of your band, but the very fact that ANYONE is embarrassed to be associated with you is sad, people should be proud of the band, like Cal is of its band...
3) First, I'm curious as to why the word band is in quotations... Also, I'm glad you have the support of some of your student body, I'd really like to see you guys shape up. It'd be nice to give the Cal band a little competition, might do both bands some good. But for now, comparing the Cal band to the Stanfurd band is like comparing Tool's Danny Carey to a baby with a rattle...
4) Yeah, our football team's showing in the big game was pretty sad, our team really started the season strong but went downhill sharply... I'm not sure what our playing poorly has to do with our balls... but if you're refering to our Offensive Coordinater's ridiculously conservative play calling, believe you me, I'm much more irritated by it then you are... and the fact that your coach just got fired doesn't really reflect on your school... its just sad and embarrassing and I figured I'd be an ass and rub salt in the wound **shrug**...
5)Yeah, I really don't like the look of your campus... but then I'm biased... and yes, few things are as unpleasant as my hairy ass...
6)Haha, despite any differences we have, I'm glad we can all agree that USC blows...

1)Read the history, you started the misspelling. Yes, indeed, I think that the Cal band has tried to copy stanford and loosen up in the past 10 years in response to being so stiff and boring. It's an attempt to say (childishly), "See? see? we can be fun and traditional at the same time! See? We're better than you!" Instead of just being yourself, a traditional stock marching band, you define yourself in contrast to Stanford. Our band, meanwhile, remains unique, and defines itself only by itself.
2) I know some Cal fans who think your band is boring. Shit happens, people have different opinions. The majority still defends our band with ardor. Glad you apologized for generalizing.
3) I'm not in the band, but I'm pretty sure we've won the Battle of the Bands a number of times. And, to be honest, I'm sick of people talking about the skill and sound of our band without actually having heard them up close and personal. They sound mediocre in a huge stadium because of the venue and the band's size, but they are amazing in other venues (basketball, rallies, etc. etc.)
4) Trust me, reminding us that our coach got fired isn't salt in our wounds. It's music to our ears.
5) and 6) Fuck USC.

Cal Band raids Stanfurd campus every year during Big Game week. The campus cops expect it, the frats and sororities expect it and the Stanfurd band expects it.

When the cops bust the Cal Band, they head over to the Stanfurd Band shack and play music and party all night.

Tradition.
