Somehow our decision to teach Ben to sing “Hail to the Victors” has progressed into insane fandom. Ben is obsessed with Michigan, Coach Harbaugh, making touchdowns, and especially the marching band (most importantly, the drum major). He requests repeat youtube viewings of the band’s halftime shows, the flyovers before the games, and gets insanely excited if he gets to watch a game with us on the weekend. At night he is often chattering away in bed about all things Michigan related, and he randomly bursts into “Hail, to the Victors” at many random points throughout the day. It is pretty hilarious!
Here is the little drum major at the park with Daddy this afternoon:
Here is his bedtime through the monitor talking about the “arm pump” (Daddy taught him to raise his arm in the air as you do each time you say HAIL in the song)
I think I’ll do the arm pump too. I think Coach Harbaugh will do the arm pump. Mommy and Daddy and Coach Harbaugh will do the arm pump and Mommy and Daddy will say YEA! Toby likes to play with tennis balls and I like to play with my toys.
One more featuring the arm pump itself… a little long, but pretty funny (please ignore the messy house):
