Anyone who has seen us do “Jammin’ with Jesus” knows that, during that song, we enter into a whole other level of ridiculousness. Saturday was no different.
We got to the part of the song that we usually do the solo and Orin stepped into rock star-mode. To the delight of 400 teens, Orin wailed on, rocked, and even licked the Keytar, during the solo.
As he was scooting around on his back, I looked down and saw more than I ever wanted to see. Orin had a rip in his pants the size of Texas and he was displaying his underpants for all to see. Erin Brennan, one of the Shrine staff members also reported seeing a horrified look on the face of a young girl who was right up front. Since Erin didn’t get a picture of that girl, I’ve included the picture you see here. It probably looked a lot like that.
Once I realized the problem, I yelled for Erin (Orin’s wife) and then alerted Orin to his breezy situation. The rest is history, or soon will be.
The thing I regret most about the whole event, is not taking the opportunity to auction off his ripped pants later in the day. I’ll bet we could have made a good chunk of change at Orin’s expense. It would have been a great way to raise money for charity. Oh well…maybe we’ll do it the next time he rips his pants in front of hundreds of people.
