As Brad left his AP Physics class and met Angelina on her way out of AP Calc, they were enchanted by the mass of blue surrounding the amphitheater. Expecting the best, and anxious for the Back to the Future brilliance, they sat down and opened their hearts to the sounds of 2015’s spirit.
Angelina: Hey Brad, how much do you think it cost them to put all of this blue up?
Brad: Not sure, but from what I heard, the Freshmen are pretty well off as far as funding goes…
A: Yeah, I can tell! They definitely outshined all the previous Freshman classes with decorations. There’s blue everywhere!
B: Well Angie, the decorations are only a part of it. Let’s see what they come up with for their performance.

B: *Snore* Oh! Woah! What? It’s over??
A: Brad! Come on, be nice! It was only the first hip-hop airband! There are still three more to go…
B: Wow. How do you know that? Doesn’t four hip-hop airbands sound like three too many?
A: Yeah, but in their defense, they had some pretty cool moves! Remember when the kid jumped and rolled over four people? That was awesome!
B: How do you know!? They haven’t even performed yet!
A: I jumped into their cardboard time machine and saw their performance in the future! They have a really cool Cultural Airband coming up!
B: I hope they manage to successfully incorporate it into the skit. It’ll be hard with all the hip-hop airbands.
A: Yeah, but I’m still looking forward to it! It was, or is going to be, a talented and colorfully costumed girl performing a traditional Asian dance with a water pail; I’ve never seen anything like it!
B: Hmmm, I’m excited to see it! But I’m still stuck on the first song! Oooh ooh oooh! Although there’s pain in my chest, I still wish you the best with a…
A: Focus Brad! I loved how everyone sang along, but it was a shame their microphones weren’t up to par. Though, I don’t think the technical difficulties are the fault of the Freshmen.
B: Yeah, but they had a great opportunity to show their spirit to cover for the lacking sound, but just like the Homecoming assembly last Friday, it was hard to hear them, despite their overwhelmingly large crowd.
A: Hey did you hear when Doc said that it took him 2015 hours to build the car? I was waiting for all the Freshmen to jump up and cheer, but no one seemed to catch on. Wait…should we cheer right now? There’s an awkward pause between scenes.
B: No, just leave it. We didn’t cheer for the last five either.
A: That’s true. Their transitions could’ve been a lot smoother, but I liked how they used the classic Journey song, “Don’t Stop Believing” to entice the crowd.
B: Didn’t they forget the lyrics though?
A: No, I think that was just the sound system acting up again.
B: Oh well, they sang “Animal” by Neon Trees to make up for it later, that was pretty cool!
—10 minutes Later—
A: Yeah!Missionwon! The Freshmen united the entire crowd to make their time machine work so we could beat Kennedy!
B: Too bad the last time we won a championship was ACTUALLY in 1978.
A: Yeah, I was really impressed that the Freshmen did their homework on our football history.
B: I figured that out, but I’m not sure how they got to the game. The skit was pretty confusing and hard to follow.
A: No matter, it was an admirable effort from the Freshmen. Plus, they have three more years to grow from this experience! Come on, Brad! We have to be on set for our next movie, “Westside Story Sophomores!” Shooting starts tomorrow, we have to get a good night’s sleep!
