All State Band Rehearsal Day

Related Articles:
Today was rehearsal day for the Alabama All State Band Festival. Each of the bands had rehearsals from 8:00 till 11:30 and then again from 1:30 till 5:00. The students were pretty worn out after 7 hours of rehearsals.

Jake was pretty worn out too. He had to entertain himself for 7 hours. It is never a good idea to leave Jake alone with that much time on his hands. To amuse himself, Jake dressed up in college-student-like attire complete with back pack and shades and tried to blend into the crowd with the college kids. He thought he was doing pretty well, but apparently the slang has changed somewhat since he was last in college. One of the kids asked Jake if he was a NARC.

Since his cover was blown, Jake returned to the rehearsal facility and walked around and spoke with the various college recruiters who were set up in the exhibit hall. Surprisingly, the University of Alabama and Auburn University recruiters were set up right next to each other. This seemed to be a pretty bold and gutsy move given the alleged rivalry between the two schools. Jake attempted to start a bidding war between the two recruiters to see which one would give Scribbles the larger scholarship. Though they were mildly amused at his tactic, they did not however make any firm offers.
