Nothing more impressive than 53,000 fans
descending upon Glasgow Green in Glasgow, Scotland
to see the best bagpipe bands compete for bragging rights
at last Saturday's World Pipe Band Championships 2010.
My oldest son is a snare drummer for Oran Mor Pipe Band,
one of only three U.S. Grade One bands and the current
Eastern United States Pipe Band Assoc. 2010 Grade One Champion.
At the World's, they competed with the best of the best.
Even though they didn’t qualify for the finals,
every member played their best and made those of us
who accompanied them on the trip extremely proud.
In case you didn’t get up at 5 a.m. East Coast time
to watch Oran Mor’s performance, here it is.
My son is second from left in the drum line.
