Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Squad Goals


Bill Walton practiced for weeks, and had the whole horn section learn the charts to Sugar Magnolias and Eyes, but when he played their audition tape for Bobby, Bobby changed the subject and Bill Walton pretended he wasn’t hurt, but he was.

(Also–and this is not mockery, because some years ago I was the guy with the trombone–these five have the Nerd Squad archetypes on lockdown: the Fat Guy, the Skinny Guy, the Balding Guy, and the Couple. That’s all your nerd bases covered.)
