Snap: Marching to success

news-uvamarchingbandonmallCafe diners, right, register their awe.

With trumpets blaring and tubas piping, the Cavalier Marching Band created a wall of sound on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall Friday night as part of "Paint the Town Orange," an annual kick-off (pun intended) to the UVA football season. Indeed, the season opener, held on Saturday night, September 4, went well for the Cavs as they defeated their coach's old team, the Spiders of the University of Richmond, 34-13, at Scott Stadium. (Speaking of coach-swapping, after losing London, Richmond grabbed the Cavaliers former wide receiver coach, Latrell Scott as the head coach–- along with five assistants)

Correction: Oops, first gave wrong final score as 35-13, but 'twas 34-13.


34-13. They missed the extra point.

I miss the pep band.
