Most of the time during half time at football games the crowd leaves the arena to order refreshments and food, not at The Ohio State University.
Merely just one week ago, The Ohio State University band astonished attendees with an elaborate tribute to Michael Jackson.
Most of the people in attendance at the packed stadium stay to watch the highly respected members of #TBDBITL (The Best Damn Band in the Land) perform. And this game was not any different.
Since, the game was a blowout, OSU lead against opponent Penn State throughout the entire game (63-14 final score), the band was just what Buckeye fans needed to add some added excitement in the air.
The “Hollywood Blockbuster Show” caught the attention of people all over the world, including the ‘Today Show’.
The show began with playing music from the movie ‘Superman’ while forming his signature “S” on the chest logo. The crown went nuts when the band posed as superman pushing a fallen building back up.
Band members went on to play music and exhibit excerpts from popular blockbuster movies:
- ‘Lord of the Rings’
- ‘Harry Potter’
- ‘Pirates of The Caribbean’
- ‘Jurassic Park’
When the football team is winning with such a big lead the game can get boring, and the band coming out is just what I needed to get excited again. I was ready to leave before the end of second quarter, but the seeing the band perform kept me from going home. I am certainly glad that I did not leave.
There is a reason that dialogue amongst students at the game consist of the ideology that it is harder to make in the band than the football team. The band and their ability to work together and make these formations is truly remarkable.
