Bill and I covered the Temple University Football Team's "Media Night" event last Wednesday. It was held outdoors at the XFinity Live bar/restaurant (Across the road from the "Linc" and Citizens Bank stadiums) and featured fan autograph opportunities with all the players, with BRILLIANT entertainment by the amazing marching band, cheerleaders, and drum majorette.
Of course no media night could be complete without a Dunk-the-Hooter Girl tank!
The tuba players had just "broken in" their brand new, shiny silver sousaphones, each weighing in at about 50 pounds. There were about 25 of them playing and dancing for HOURS!
It was a grand and enormously fun night for us.

    You have been blessed to be able to take in o many amazing events and you have the talent to bring out some of the most beautiful parts of the events to us. I love the way you composed this picture, the pov, the sounds of the marching band ringing in our ears. Gorgeous, vivid colors, love that treatment. Another beautiful addition to a most enjoyable gallery to visit my friend.
