Not only did Stanford beat BYU 37-10 this weekend, but the band had to have a little “fun”:
There’s nothing funny about polygamy. Stanford is apologizing to BYU over a halftime show by the Cardinal band.
The band poked fun at polygamy with five dancers wearing wedding veils. Brigham Young University is, of course, the Utah-based Mormon school.
A statement from Stanford athletic director Ted Leland says the band’s actions were inappropriate. He adds Stanford is committed to being a good host.
I have no idea how it came across in person but it sounds a little funny in the abstract.
