    One time, we went to a drumline competition. We had practiced countless hours and had the show almost perfect. I don't really remember the score we ended up getting, just that we got 3rd or 4th (and for a small line, that's pretty nice :D). Anyway, our line gets out there, we do the show, and when we leave, I look at the third bass. Well, turns out, he had his drum on upside down the whole time. Ha, I don't think he's ever gonna live that down.

    Another time, my good friend was playing the tenors. In the middle of the show, we all hear kind of a 'POP' and we all just look over at him. He broke one of the heads on the drum.

    Just remembered this one. Our old percussion director used to always get really close to our drumline, mostly to hear how we were doing. Well, during one of our rehearsals, he got a little too close to the bass drums. We were crossing over the 50, and of course, we did the usual turn, where he gets hit hard with one of the drums, knocking him flat on his back. :D We were all laughing so hard, we almost couldn't keep playing. I know it's mean, but it's not like we noticed he was there >.>

    ok. I've said that I play crash cymbals. That is true. When marching, they are in the back of the drumline. However, when we turn around, they're in the front. I was the ONLY cymbal player at practice, and I'm not very big, so I was terrified that the whole entire drumline would end up trampling me.

    Our college drum line started off the show on the sideline with the horns on all 4 corners of the field. The drums marched out to the center of the field, did a four count turn around and went into a cadence to bring the entire band into the field. Before starting one day a snare drummer threw a cigarette down and out we went. When we turned around there it was. Back in the day we had huge cuffs in our pants and he had thrown the cigarette into his cuff. As we started playing his pants started smoking and went up into flames as he appeared to be doing a really wild dance to our cadence. We lost it!!
