from the the Reebok Groupon Page
“Unlike playing the trombone in a college marching band, playing quarterback on the college football team requires talent, rhythm, and the ability to refrain from tooting your own horn. Get into playing shape with this Groupon.”
I think you should all send Reebok nasty messages over this. This is uncool.

THE SHEER AND UTTER IGNORANCE.
Like, I’m a choir kid who spent only one year in marching band, and I didn’t even march because I played the xylophone. But frick, I know how much everyone in marching band works their freakin butts off. Even without the marching aspect, playing an instrument in a group of people completely relies on rhythm and a frickton of skill and unity. Music IS rhythm. And you’re gonna tell me it somehow takes LESS rhythm and skill to do that AND to march, than to play your dumb sport? OH HECK NAW.
