With football season kicking off, we rounded up some of the funniest marching-band blooper videos below. And because we're not totally heartless, we also found a few that are so awesome that we have to tip our cap and say, "We're so happy our parents never made us do that, because we would have been awful." Enjoy!
One of the most famous plays in football history, the ending of the 1982 Stanford-Cal game featured one of the biggest blunders in marching-band history. Trombonist Gary Tyrrell will forever be known as the guy who got leveled as Cal's Kevin Moen scored the winning TD.
One trombone player falling over is good. Eight is great.
We have no doubt that those drums are heavy, but damn, kid. Make an effort to get up.
Who's at fault here: The cameraman or the sousaphone dude? For another angle, click here.
Timing is everything. This Longhorn doesn't have it, and has the gall not to admit it for about 20 yards.
You'd think sousaphonists would practice getting up off the ground, considering how much those things weigh.
Sometimes the band isn't at fault -- it's the alcohol. Fast forward to 0:38 to see this Ravens fan bite it.
Now this guy has some talent. To see that jerk kid coming from the corner of his eye and trip him at the perfect moment is just something you can't teach. It's instinct.
Jackson State just owns this marching-band game.
Now that's teamwork, Hawaii. Dozens of members unite like Voltron form a giant kicker, who nails a field goal.
Radiohead doing "15 Step" at the Grammys would be cool on its own, but with the USC Trojan band backing them, it's a masterpiece.
