Frankly, I think Mark Purdy's column in today's Mercury-News was right on target: the band is simply not funny, and, as Purdy writes, "its allegedly clever performances have deteriorated into a mess of inside jokes, incomprehensible themes and over-the-line bad taste."
I enjoy Stanford football, but I have to admit I cringe when the LSJUMB takes the field. They're embarrassing, obnoxious, crude, and the music's not even very good. Call me old-fashioned, but it's always a treat to see a real marching band. I do hope Stanford can beat Navy tomorrow, but I'll be rooting for the Navy band.
