Well, most know I’m no fan of Ohio State ANYTHING… but the exception to that has to be the OSU Marching Band. The Best Damn Band in the Land.

Last night, they came to my alma mater, Woodmore High School! Assistant director of bands at OSU, Jon Waters, is a Woodmore grad, so it was really great of him to bring the 210 members to Elmore.

Since the stadium is only a block and a half from our house, Maryellen and I walked down with my aunt and uncle and watched pregame. Script Ohio was pretty amazing… and seeing my high school band do pregame with OSU’s band watching them kind of choked me up a little. What a thrill for those kids!!

I was a bando in HS and also marched in the BGSU Falcon Marching band for 2 years. I tried to explain the thrill of last night for those high school kids to a couple of co-workers by saying, “It’d be like Michael Jordan coming and practicing with your HS basketball team.”

Here’s the best of the videos I got. There’s 4 of them in a YouTube playlist.
