Kickin' it Old School

Here's a little morning kick for everyone - Gorillas Don't Blog (see, I'm more than obscure local papers) has a great post on Tommy Walker, who is a true footnote in terms of kicker history, but for Disney fanatics he was the son of the first conductor of the DisneyLand Band and went on to be DisneyLand's first Director of Entertainments.

He's also the guy that wrote the "Da-da-da-da-da-dah! Charge" cheer. Wonder how the royalties work on that...

As a college kicker for USC , Tommy is most noted for doing double-duty as the bandleader.
