Going Green

The George Mason Patriots extended their winning streak to 14 on Thursday night. They close out the regular season in Atlanta on Saturday evening with a game against the Georgia State Panthers.

In the past couple of days, Tom C. Block, chairman of the Green Machine Boosters, has uploaded seven YouTube videos of the George Mason University Pep Band The Green Machine. You can see them practicing “Thriller” but it’s rehearsal footage of their Rage Against the Machine medley that has gone viral.

My former colleague Russ Allen tipped me off about the video. As a Maryland fan, at least he appreciates the accomplishments of Mason’s success in a mid-major conference. Some ignoramus at Best Week Ever says (I assume sarcastically) that George Mason “is apparently a school just outside of DC.”

Dan Steinberg of The Washington Post shows a lot more love toward the Green Machine. Thanks to him, I saw Bill Murray enjoying the George Mason University Pep Band at the beginning of this season in Charleston.
