I'm not even a Queen's Alumnus, but I could not agree more. I am beyond proud of my children, both whom graduated from Queen's. For 10 years I've attended Queen's football games, as they cannot be rivalled. There is no other University that can boast such genuine school spirit and alumni dedication, not to mention entrenched and long-lived traditions. Mr. Whitely is completely correct. The Queen's Band makes the games hugely entertaining, unique, and a cut above the rest. I attended the Queen's - Mac game last year - at McMaster. The treatment of the Queen's Band (and fans) by McMaster was appalling. They were relegated to a corner in the stands, and not allowed to play. Instead we were treated to pre-recorded hip-hop bar music all game long. Surely the Queen's athletics department is not going to follow such a lead. If they do, they are sinking to a much lower common denominator. Queen's has always done it right - don't mess with tradition. You are a cut above. Stay that way!!
