RE: New, Old, and Current Game Day Traditions.
or the intro I would love to use the intro and the chorus to Fire Woman by the cult:

Fire, yeah
Woah, yeah

Shake, shake, shake, shake it, yeah

Fire
Smoke, she is a rising fire, yeah
Smoke on the horizon, well
Fire
Smoke, she is a rising fire
Oh, smokestack lightning
Smokestack lightning

https://youtu.be/8g6h1vI4Xv0

Use the intro and then have the chorus on a loop

One of my favorite traditions was putting two Natty Lights in a Newks cup at a time and playing cornhole until I came to in the student section inside the stadium

Need to know how to read the room. We did Blazer Thunder down by how many points? Also, whatever song we played after that, got Liberty hyped up. Paid off vs them much like it did vs Louisiana.

Win or lose Blazer Thunder should be done. Shows the fans are still behind the team WIN or Lose.
But like someone stated, BT went on to long.

That Birmingham song was a dud and I said it was gonna be a dud and it proved to be a dud. If we're gonna play it, it needs to be played ONLY after a home win.


THAT INTRO VIDEO WAS AWESOME. #HereBeDragons

One tradition I do HATE is our tradition of ungodly amount of penalty yards we accrue every game.

That Randy Newman song sucks. I guess some genius thought this would be like I Love LA at Lakers and Dodgers games. Sorry guy, it's not going to work.

Whoever has a connection to the person over that decision, reach out and tell them to never do that again.

Suggestion:

The Blazer Thunder is to long. It should be 8 claps and a celebration.
Sing Along: The Groove Line by Heatwave

Note: The game reminded me of the first game that the Birmingham Stallions play. The lost to the New Jersey Generals in Hershel Walker's first professional game.

If we're going to do Blazer Thunder, do it right. Add the grunt as here, and note that all the clapping is over in thirty seconds. We extend the fast as you can clapping for far too long as things stand.

It will be easy to tell the drumline and Marching Blazers’ staff to end the Blazer Thunder earlier and not get so fast and hectic at the end.

It will be difficult to start a sing-a-long with a crowd with that Randy Newman song. If they absolute want to have that song, let it be AFTER a win.

Part of the issue with the song is that about 70% of the crowd was already gone by the time it started. Spitting rain and a blowout sent a bunch of casual viewers home early

Love the thunder, just wish we'd do it right. We do it completely wrong.

I thought I was gonna like the Randy Newman thing, but that was before the drumming we took in the third quarter sapped all the energy from the stadium. It was a complete eyeroll. But it would have sucked almost as bad in the middle of a tense game.

As a wrap up a win, fine. Let the band lead it even. .... But not during the game, please, ever again.
