    Perhaps they suddenly acquired some higher musical taste and their own marching band music made them sick?

    Ok. I chuckled. But it's really not funny. Some of them were really sick and the "not knowing" must be awful for those parents.

    It has to be an exposure issue (chemical rather than biological) for all of them to be hit at the same time. I'm sure the hazmat team will figure it out.

    Upon more thought, I would imagine the stadium is outside, as HS football fields are. The bands usually sit together in the bleachers/stands. Maybe the home team school had just refinished the stands. But, I would imagine other non-band fans would be affected, too, if that were the case.

    So, this may be some sort of school prank gone very wrong. Some sort of substance was planted in the stands where the band sits. That is probable.

    Either way, I have confidence that the hazmat team will find out. If it is the latter, I hope the pranksters get in trouble. They need to learn that if they are planning a prank, they need to be safe.

    Interesting situation, though.
