    I am sure Pav is like most dads; he would be proud if his child were to graduate from a better university then he did. :cool:

    There were a couple of Aretha Franklin covers at the UMass game. Loved 'em! Was this the same singer who did them in past years? Or did she graduate and was back in town for the holidays? I must say I enjoyed the singing on these than I have on the other singers that people on the board have been complaining about.

    Message from Doc on Facebook:

    #MasonNation, Here are some things that I'm looking for from you which will be graded:

    1. Come to the George Mason University Patriots Mens Basketball vs. University of Rhode Island Mens Basketball game. 4pm tip. Green Machine will get cranked up at about 3:15.

    - High Pass: Arrive in time for the pre-game Green Machine performance.
    - Pass: Arrive in time for tip (4pm)
    - Low Pass: arrive late
    - Fail: Don't show

    2. Don your Green and Gold!

    -High Pass: Head-to-toe hat, wig, glasses, face-paint, beads, shirt, sleeves/gloves, outrageous costume,
    etc.
    - Pass: Wear a Green and/ High or Gold Mason shirt
    - Low Pass: Wear clothes
    - Fail: Wear a Rhode Island shirt or light blue

    3. We play the Fight Song (Onward to Victory!) 7 times a game.

    - High Pass: Stand and clap along each and every time. Sing, chant, and do the arm movements.
    - Pass: Stand or sit and clap along only.
    - Low Pass: Sit and look on encouragingly.
    - Fail: Stay seated. Stay quiet or talk to the people around you or check Facebook. (Extra credit if you are on Facebook reading this post because you forgot what I told you to do.)

    4. Torn up Newspaper.

    - High Pass: Bring some. Throw it in the air when something dope happens.
    - Pass: Enjoy it when someone else throws some.
    - Low Pass: Say to yourself, "I will bring some next time" and never do it.
    Fail: Be annoyed by flying newspaper confetti.

    5. Cheer for our boys out there!

    - High Pass: Proactively, no matter how the game is going.
    - Pass: When we score and get rebound and other good things happen.
    - Low Pass: Only at the end of the game.
    - Fail: Be apathetic.

    6. The Green Machine plays fun and hype music.

    - High Pass: Sing along, dance, and show your love for them.
    - There is no other option.

    7. Stay to the end!
    - High Pass: Win or lose! and catch the Green Machine post-game mini concert! Grab a bite at Brion's Grille afterward! Take pics and vids and post them!
    - Pass: Cheer for the team as they leave the floor then head out.
    - Fail: Try to beat traffic

    We will get out of it what we put in. Let's make some great memories!

    Love to you all,

    Doc

    Actually the fight song leading into "Superstition" is their best arrangement from my perspective and I can't hear enough of it!

    By the way, are there no longer any thoughts of putting together a recording of the Green Machine in some format or other?

    Probably wound up being too expensive to secure the rights to all those songs. The recording industry can be a bear with their demands.

    At the risk of losing my "man card," that rendition of Titanic last night was awesome.
