    Default Ohio Firefighter Quits Band Over Obama Parade Nod

    I can't believe someone hasn't started thread on this since it has made such a stir that it even appears on the www.firehouse.com home page:

    http://cms.firehouse.com/content/art...9&sectionId=46

    I see both sides of this argument. While I understand that the nod and wave was in violation of a regulation for the parade that was 37 pages long, a Drum Major by nature is supposed to be a bit aloof and independent in the performance of their function.

    Maybe Obama will give him a Presidential Pardon??

    Default OH NO!!! TBDBITL Did It Too!!!

    I just did a video search.. the quality isn't great, but clearly at least one of the Assistant Directors from our beloved "Pride of the Buckeyes" failed to follow decorum and rendered a hand salute!

    They should have played "Beautiful Ohio" and rolled right into "Hang On Sloopy"!
