School Spirit! Posted on 07-18-2004
Earn

Hamptonians it is time for you all to be put on blast.....what is up with this lack of school spirit. You see the Football team, "The Force", blue thunder, even the choir and the pirateers getting hype of off everything but what about everybody else. Why are the Hampton people not getting hype? What is the issue? Speak your mind... We just don't get it....we are hype in the stands and everyone else is still sitting down like bumps on a log...What is the issue?

I'm working it out as we speak......so far I've found a couple suspect people. When I finish compiling my list they will have a week to prove themselves or get the boot.

I have school spirit for HU because I'm glad that i was accepted....and I'm gonna let everyone kno that HU is where I'm going (even if they dont kno me) Everytime someone from my town mentions Hampton--me n my friends that are also goin to HU this fall all get hyped.......but yea, school spirit was always a problem at my HS....I think people should just forget about what other people r gonna think....get crunk and rep HU and show their spirit

This is one thing that I have noticed... The first game is ALWAYS the hypest. Then it diminishes as the season goes. I mean we only had 3 home games last year and I feel that we got more love in Cleveland and Jersey then we did in Hampton... I mean I felt like more people cheered in NORFOLK then at home. To people that are looking... you have to realize that the band is there for you and the team. We feed off of your hypeness. We cant just be on the field giving our all and you all up in the stands chillin...lol.. I know it sounds like crazy... but its true!!! We always try to think of new and inoventive ways to make yall just get on ya feet!! lol...whats up?!?!

Thats what Im talkin about! U a head bussa! I remember homecoming when we marched off and it was dead silent. I heard the crickets chirping...I was like the crowd is lame. We busted our butts this week to get Halftime ready and that's what we get? Durn! I cant get hype off of a dead crowd, then the crowd complains about the band!

Not to bust any bubbles...but although you guys worked really hard...the halftime performance was kinda dry. I've heard wayyyyyyyyy better performances by THE FORCE...and I just knew for homecoming yall were gonna pull out some new...never been seen done and all that stuff before things....but at the end I know I was like...BLAH!!!!

Damn....I don't like sitting in the student section at games because its not the best view in the house. BUT I may have to join the pep squad...Pirateers...whatever they are....I got some ideas....I'm bout to add some D-1 A white people spirit....get some dudes to right H-A-M-P-T-O-N across their chest during the coldest game of the year.
