USC's Marqise Lee, Lane Kiffin try their hands at being ice cream men

By Martin Rickman

Hey, it's not just football teams that deserve ice cream and pizza parties. Bands work hard, too. I know that because I used to live a block from my high school, and after we'd finish two-a-days, instead of being able to take a nap and watch SpongeBob or whatever it was I was trying to do, I'd hear Sheryl Crow's "Soak Up The Sun" being played for three straight hours by a bunch of trombones.

The USC marching band is one of the best in the land, so why not do something special for them? That's exactly what Trojans coach Lane Kiffin and wide receiver Marqise Lee did:

A couple of thoughts:

1. Kiffin should drive an ice cream truck while wearing a visor all the time. It suits him.

2. There is no doubt in my mind Lee did this for the free ice cream. And why wouldn't he? Ice cream is delicious.

3. Dr. Arthur C. Bartner has been at USC longer than coach Kiffin has been alive. That guy is a boss.

4. College football is sorely lacking an ice cream truck mascot or ice cream truck tradition. Take a bit of inspiration from the old Twisted Metal video games. Those trucks can be really fearsome and intimidating. Move over Ramblin' Wreck and Boomer Schooner, the Frozen Trojan is coming through.
