“The Strategic Air Command March?” she asked.
Gregg’s face broke into a smile and his eyebrows raised without conscious effort on his part, “You’re a fan? Thought you were a loyal Irish girl.”
“I’m a fan of great marching bands. I live in South Bend now, and wear this cap for PR, but I’m a Virginia Tech girl -- I marched in their band when I was in school.”
“Just what is a ‘Hokie?’”
“Tell me what an ‘Aggie’ is, and I’ll tell you what a ‘Hokie’ is.”
“Why don’t we have this conversation over dinner and drinks?”
The set up:
The speakers are Jerry Gregg, one of the late Julian Thibaut's security men. He's a Texas Aggie.
He's conversing with Erin O'Hara, the pilot of a King Air of which he is the only passenger. She is wearing a Notre Dame baseball cap.
Just before this snippett, she had asked him about his music preferences.
Lagnaippe (something extra you didn't expect):
If you enjoy watching precision marching, here's a treat. The nationally famous "Fightin' Texas Aggie Band." The entire show is fantastic, but if you want to skip ahead to hear the Strategic Air Command march, move the cursor to the 4:53 mark.
