Lebron James the Reason Stanford Band Banned From Halftime Show???

If you are wondering why the Stanford band won’t be performing at the Orange Bowl’s Halftime show we may have figured out why.  It looks like Orange Bowl officials were nervous they might make fun of Lebron James.

Don’t believe me?

Read this.

Fearing an en masse pants drop, or just wanting to protect their newest celeb athlete, LeBron James, from OJ Simpson-style mockery, the Orange Bowl administrators have decided to keep the bawdy Stanford Band from performing at halftime.

For more than 40 years the Stanford Marching Unit Team, or SMUT, has been providing scandal for the NCAA. For OJ, the band pulled out a white van covered in bloody handprints. Also in LA, they spoofed the USC alum who started Girls Gone Wild when their announcer said, “It takes a special kind of man to be wanted for sexual harassment, drug trafficking, tax evasion, prostitution, child abuse and disruptive flatulence.”

I am starting to think Lebron is some sort of King.

When you can cause enough fear in a city to banned a band in a sport you never participated in, you are either a King, Mafia Boss or Oprah.

Lebron never even went to college, but he is dictating without saying anything BCS Bowl games halftime shows?

Even Brett Favre doesn’t have that type of pull.

Maybe I should ease up on those Lebron Hairlines jokes.

    It never stops amazing me how easily people can be manipulated to do what most of them would protest at any other time. And since when did any athlete dictate policy unless someone let them. As for the stanford band,if you don't care for thier antics,tune out halftime show and go get a beer or snack. What a bunch of c—!

    Im not understanding why this measure was needed. Lebron wasnt even in attendance. He didnt attend V-Tech, nor Standford. He had no connection whatsoever to this game. Sounds like they just had it out for SMUT.

    This is misinformation thanks to bad reporting by an NBC online writer in San Francisco (Middleton). The Band spoofed the LeBron interview before the game, and the Orange Bowl has never used the marching bands at halftime in favor of a SuperBowl type production. The Orange Bowl folks were terrific to the Stanford Band. Unfortunately, the wires, NY Times and ESPN all picked up on a completely misinformed article.
