My hope of experiencing a déjà toot with the Eastern Washington University band must be a dream deferred. The good news is that I didn’t waste any time trying to resurrect my deceased trumpet lip. But due to scheduling demands far beyond my control, I won’t be joining the EWU band this Saturday as the mighty Eagles take on a football team from Sam Houston State in the FCS semifinal on scarlet Roos Field. Not that I’m complaining. On Saturday I’ll be having loads of excitement with another goodhearted team that includes Randy Shaw, Amy Biviano, Sammy Eubanks and others. The Fred Meyer store on Thor Street in Spokane is the place. The fun begins at 10 a.m. and continues until 5 p.m. We will be taking part in the Salvation Army’s annual red kettle Ring Off between the Spokane mayor and Coeur d’Alene Mayor Sandi Bloem, who will be doing her thing at the Lake City’s Fred Meyer/Doug Clark, SR.

Question: Who do you think will win?
