March Madness 2014: Stanford band allegedly caught hiding booze in tubas

Anybody notice if the Stanford band has been a little extra crunk during March Madness and the NCAA Tournament?

If they have, it might be because of the band allegedly sneaking booze into the event via their instruments.

Sounds a little crazy, right? But according to Rick Bozich of WDRB in Louisville, members of the Stanford band were stopped by security after members of the band put alcohol in their tuba.

Interesting tidbit from Scottrade Center security: Had an issue with Stanford band members sneaking booze in with their tubas.

I’m not even sure what to say here.

I mean, it’s rather ingenious by the band members and by security. It’s not exactly a place you’d expect security to look – and on the flip side – hell of a job by security to look there.

It doesn’t appear anybody was deemed to be in any serious trouble and whatever booze there was, was presumably confiscated and the band member sent on their way.

Have to say – that’s a new one for me.
