Posted by UM fan Max Young this morning on Facebook….classic police encounter.
Cop: “Do you have any idea how fast you were going son?” Me: “Sorry officer…I have no clue.” Cop: “Quite a bit faster than the speed limit. Any reason why you’re going so fast this early in the morning?” Me: “Well, do you want the truth?” Cop: “Ideally.” Me: “I was listening to a song that got really intense and I didn’t realize my foot was getting as heavy as the music.” Cop: “Right…and what were you listening to?” Me: “Uh…well…you ever hear of Umphrey’s McGee?” Cop: “….seriously?” Me: “…guess not –“ Cop: “THAT’S MY FAVORITE BAND!! What song and what show!?” Me: “….wait — WHAT?!” Cop: “What were you listening to??” Me: “Penn’s Peak– Cop: “HIGGINS JAM?!” Me: “Dude….what is happening right now….YES!!” Cop: “Wow. I guess I understand then…I was at that show — easily my favorite Higgins jam. I’d talk tunes all morning but it’s probably better I get goin — do me a favor and if you want to speed to these guys, do so at the gig, not on the road. Drive SLOW and safely and have a nice day!” Me: “….wow, thank you?” Cop on his way back to the car: \mm/
