Fife-and-Drum Madness

RICHMOND, Va. -- They take the "Colonial" in Colonial Athletic Association seriously here -- or at least seriously enough to bring in the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums to serenade William & Mary fans waiting to get in to Monday's title game. I can't decide whether this, or the show choir I saw outside the men's free skate in Vancouver is the more venue-appropriate music.

I cut the video at 28 seconds, because I felt that was the average person's flute-and-drum tolerance threshold. I did appreciate how the F&D crew made even the people pretending to ignore them fall into step, though.
