I actually did that last year within the discussion of this very same topic. Quite the battle last season actually.... just hoping for more of the same.

BE band should lead the team into game playing the drums. That would be awesome! Blow this up like an old time Biddeford & TA game. Fill the place!

I have seen about a score of riveting Albannach performances over the years....at Scottish Highland games, Celtic Events, and even while wintering in Florida....I have met them all and even bent elbows with some of them into the wee hours of the morning....interestingly the only women in the band is Aya Thorne...."Thorne" being a proud Scot name and one with which TA will become familiar this Saturday....

One of Albannach's best numbers is The Gael.....Google ALBANNACH, THE GAEL

I have studied military history, tactics, weapons, and fighting techniques ....and visited battlefields here and in Europe for over 55 years....and it is my considered opinion the Scots are the fiercest and best warriors this world has ever produced....

Good stuff by Travis and crew. Getting a lot of shares and comments on social media too. Funny, poignant, and good all around. Well done.

Mr. Labreck.
For some reason I can not reply directly to your post today.
It's the calm before the storm. This topic has beaten itself to death. Just have to play the game now.

If I remember correctly, last season the lead up to the BE/TA game was pretty "energetic". Tell me more Rob.
