Why would I ever post anything on YouTube?
Why do I make the trek to visit the Victoria Highland Games every year?
Why do I endure the long weekend ferry line ups?
Why am I such a big fan of the SFU Pipe Band?
It’s become a tradition. I visit some of my friends that live there and reconnect with the good people that put on this amazing event.
And it’s not just my yearly selfie with Jason. (Yes, that’s Jason Paguio, the world champion Drum Major for the SFU Pipe Band.)
It’s not just eating a “double” portion of haggis! (And then coming back for more!)
It’s not just having my camera ready for an iconic picture that receives thousands of views when I post it on Twitter.
It is “being in the right place at the right time” and opting to start a video recording.

A highlight of the Games is the impressive massed band at the opening and closing ceremony. I positioned myself to be on the side where the SFU pipe band would be.
Little did I know they would invite this young man to march with them?
Playing alongside a world famous pipe band is like skating with Sidney Crosby or cooking with Rachael Ray.
And so worth a post on YouTube.
