Which is exactly what happened sometime this past Thursday night during the slate of college football games when Jim tweeted this gem out:

“Is there anyone not in a marching band who thinks those dorks running around with their instruments are cool?”

Well, that set off a HUGE internet backlash that got SO bad Rome was calling for mercy by the very next day!
Here’s what he wrote on Twitter:

“Band nation – I hear you. I was out of line. I apologize. I do not condone bullying of any kind and that was not my intent.”

That did seem exactly what a high school bully would say, but at least Jim owned up and admitted he was wrong.
Hell hath no fury like a young adult with a saxophone!
No but seriously school marching bands are like nine times out of ten more entertaining than the actual football games.
