The epic oral history of the Hawkeye Marching Band

Spencer Hall posted a fine review of college marching band shenanigans over at SBNation that, while a fantastic read, is entirely lacking in stories from the Iowa marching band.

I know there's other current members and fossils of varying age who frequent this corner of the internets, so let's hear your stories of the HMB.  Shenanigans?  Favorite alternate lyrics/traditions?  Fun little anecdotes?  Let's hear 'em.

-The breaking of the piano and the banning from the East Lansing Holiday Inn in 2003.

- The first two Outback Bowls; specifically, the shooting of the fireworks at the Hilton, the blow-up doll, and 200 people plastered on a beach on New Years' Eve.

-The boat paddle incident in Champaign in '06.
