At this weeks football game between our hometown UTEP (University of Texas at El Paso) Miners and the CSU Rams, it was homecoming week. Just moments after the homecoming King and Queen walked off of the field, the stadium lights went out, plunging the stands (with about 30,000 fans) and field full of band members into darkness. Hardly missing a beat, and seeing how some cell phones screens started popping up (and some catcalls), the Marching Miner Regiment's director, Professor Feagin decided to start up an impromptu pep rally. He started by playing "Requiem for a Dream", a new type of fight song, followed by the school fight song.

Not only did the crowd get pumped up, but nobody left their seat and it gave those present incredible memories! To see exactly how dark it was that night, youtube "Blackout at the Sun Bowl".

    Thank you, its a simple color isolation effect to show what I actually saw, the cell phones screens and a slight splash of orange, especially of Professor Feagin. My camera has insane ISO power, honestly I couldn't see him standing up there. Much less, do I know how he directed the band in the darkness!
