Band Nerds Take Seattle, Theater Dorks Lay In Wait



I'm no Seattle hater. They've got a good thing going up there with big name players, a big fan base and that key quality that is so elusive to far too many American soccer markets: profitability.

Having said that I just watched the video above and I can TOTALLY see why people hate them. I had to listen to this 4 times before I realized it was an Outkast song. And I think they may have actually set marching bands back 75 years with this mass display of Elaine from Seinfeld-style dancing. Somewhere in Louisiana, the Grambling State marching band weeps for their craft.

Didn't realize Sigi directed the marching band, too.

Gotta love watching white people get down.

Says the awkward white guy.

I'd like to state for the record this has nothing to do with race. Let's be clear here; Justin Timberlake CAN DANCE, Whitney Houston CAN NOT.

This is just about being whack.

And these are the "cool" people in Seattle...

Haha, how apt--my "code" is "venti"

Can't wait for Vancov and Ptown to enter the league with no marching bands what so ever!

True enough, SF. I should have put the quotes up. "White people." As in the kind of people that "Stuff that white people like" chronicles.

Better?

I'd like to at least commend the complete lack of shame.
I loved it!
In all seriousness though, take a listen to the band, live.
They can actually blow. This recording, and song choice, doesn't do it!
Go Sounders! and thank you Sounders band.

Sitting in the stands at today's excuse for a game, we all sat there with confused looks on our faces going "what the hell? what song is that?" Thanks for telling us it's Outkast, but I still don't hear it.
