speaking of college football

Since I was just on the topic of college football (and it still happens to be on our TV), I thought I would share this with you.

Matt is watching the USC vs. Ohio State game, and the Ohio State band just performed. They are known for spelling out Ohio in cursive on the field. I had never seen it before, so I thought it was pretty cool. Here is a video of it, if you have never seen it.

Matt says that this is the only good thing about Ohio State. Hah!

But of course if I'm going to show a video of a random college band, I have to show you a video of my college band.

The Fightin' Texas Aggie Band.

If you have never seen the Aggie band, it's worth your time to watch it. It's very different from your typical college band. The Aggie Band is military style. The video doesn't do it justice though. Watching them perform on Kyle field is a true experience.

Gig 'em Ags!!!

Tammy took my words right out of my mouth. There is nothing better than standing on the student side of Kyle Field and listening to the announcer announce the band and then they start playing!! I have goose bumps right now and I am itching to get to a game ASAP!!! WHOOP!!!

EVEN though I am a RED RAIDER I have the deepest respect for the Aggie Band! They are one in a million! I remember the first time I saw them in person. My Dad took me to a TCU game and I was probably in Jr. High, and I was mesmerized by them! I love watching them!
