  1. Since any event with a pre-game and post-game show deserves a half-time show too, I’d like to nominate the Univited Loud Precision Band from Sandra Boynton’s Blue Moo.

    (And thanks for the pre-game and post-game. Sounds like fun!)

  2. Hello! I could have sworn I’ve visited your blog before but after going through
    a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m
    definitely happy I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking
    it and checking back regularly!
