I miss DaJuan Morgan. Not really because he was a great football player for the Pack, more so because he was one hell of a dancer. I’ve been taking dance lessons with Mrs. DFCF for a little over a month now and our instructor hasn’t got to this dance yet. But she wouldn’t hold a candle to DaJuan anyway so I told her to not even bother. The dance lessons have been fun. I recommend them to all the fellas out there. Great birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s day, etc. gift for the wife/girlfriend.
So Apache is how the Pack celebrates after a win. I’ve tried to trace it back to its origins, but that is not an easy task. I’m not sure when it started, but my best guess would be 6-8 years ago. The band played it randomly in a few games one season and it became popular with the students. Over the next few seasons it was played more frequently until it became, dare i say, a new gameday tradition. It reached epic proportions when DaJuan made it the official unofficial Pack victory celebration.
So far this season the band has not played it that much. I didn’t hear it at all during the South Carolina game and even though we were dominating Murray State I only heard it a couple times. It was good to see the team celebrate with it after the game led by Earl Wolff, who without a doubt has the best name of any Pack player of all time.
Btw, there is video out there of me doing the apache at a wedding this past spring. I may have had a few drinks in me and I may have looked like a fool, but had a lot of fun nontheless. If I get hold of the video I’ll post it here so everybody can see my dancing skills.
