Shreveport, LA — Mardi Gras

This weekend was the annual Mardi Gras parade down South. Overall pretty good. With warmer temps came a much larger and more inebriated crowd which lined the 5.5 mile route 10 and 20 deep at times. It's gigs like this that make me proud to be in the army band. And you know, just proud to be an American and serve my country by playing in such a raucous display of humanity.

The Star Wars float. This year's float theme was comic characters, so I'm not real sure how Star Wars fits in there...

The venerable bone section before the parade. Rockin'.

Notice something wrong about this quote? Yeah, it should be "MAY the force be with you." Sheesh. Must be amateur night.

The LSU fans were thick as this dripping-with-SEC-pride float illustrates. For me? Don't much like those Tigers...(see Sugar Bowl '04).

Your typical well loosened LSU fan. I had to be discreet...

Apparently there remain some feelings of distaste for Mr. Saban among the Tiger brethren.

One night we ate at a japanese hibachi place. It was delish. And apparently it was my birthday too. Thanks, guys, I guess Feb. 9 isn't a bad birthday to have. Here's the card I got to commemorate my special day. Being 24 feels a lot like 23.

An attempt at awkward. Give them some time, they're new to the genre.


Girls Gone Wild: the party didn't stop after my return to Norman.
