So, whadya wanna see: the assistant band director from Lake Dallas High School tackling a "streaking" student from The Colony High School before their teams played last Friday night? Or how about a woman recounting the legend of the Lady of the Lake? Or maybe some cheerleaders root-root-rooting for the competitors at the Midnight Gaming Championship at the American Airlines Center? Or The Drams performing The Band's "The Shape I'm In" at the Carter Albrecht Memorial concert Saturday at the Granada Theater? Thought so. --Robert Wilonsky
