  • Same bands, different tastes leave Marching Bearcats hungry again

    It was somewhat fitting that the final performance of the 2016 season for the Anderson County High School Marching Band would come at a place named for a pizza empire.

    I’ll take the ham and pineapple. You can have pepperoni and mushrooms.

    We can both be happy.After having some pizza — Really, what else can you eat at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium? — the Marching Bearcats were just ready to finally claim that elusive big trophy they have been chasing the last five years.

    4. The coach never came to visit me.

    5. The referees made a decision that I didn’t like.

    6. I was sitting with hypocrites. They only came to see what others were wearing.
