Week One

Most game weeks, I give you my Band on the Road Game of the Week; the game that will feature two bands that's that week's key matchup. There are plenty that fit the bill for opening week - a few that have already passed, in fact - but instead, I'm celebrating the return of the sport and the marching and gameday atmosphere that accompanies it wholesale. It's the glorious time where nearly everyone began the week undefeated (sorry, Hawai'i), old friendships are being rekindled in the lot and in the stands, and you're hearing those strains of your fight song live once more. Gotta love it.

Whether you're enjoying it from your couch, your yard, your car, or a stadium near you, happy opening week!
