My World

Visit My World to see more of our world or to participate yourself.

Last weekend was Homecoming at Rice University.


Lots of barbecue and fun for the kids.


It was soon time for the football game.
The Owls did really well last year.
Had a 10 - 3 season and played in a bowl game that they won.
This year hasn't been near as exciting.
This is the Marching Owl Band.
Better known as the MOB.


As you can see,
the MOB is a little different from most college bands.
No uniforms.
How many marching bands have string instruments
and musicians in long dresses.
I'd hoped we got a photo of the girl with the bubble machine
on her hat, but missed it.
The sound they provide the crowd with is sensational.

Owls Win

Most importantly,
The Owls won their Homecoming Game
defeating Tulane 28 - 20.

Looks like fun and congratulations to the Owls.

Yea for the Owls! Love the marching band wearing all their different clothes.

I like the pictures of MOB. Since the music is the most important thing, who cares about the lack of uniforms? I'm glad Rice won the game.

Go Owls! A win is always a great way to end homecoming. I like the fact that MOB gets to wear regular clothes when they perform. We always had those horrible old wool uniforms with the shaker hats. Great captures!

The MOB does look unusual without uniforms - in a quirky, fun way! Glad they could celebrate a win.

Rice University (and Tulane) are both good colleges--academically. Glad you enjoyed Homecoming!!!

Snap: Great photos from the game. It is so strange to see empty stands in college games.

Congratulation's on Rice's victory. The Owl Marching Band hasn't started actually marching, have they?

Home coming is always so exciting and to win your game makes it very special.
