We have some great marching bands here in the Tri-State area. If you ever travel on Barker around Howell Park on the West Side this time of year, for example, you will see the Reitz marching band hard at work during practice. These bands don't get anywhere near the credit they deserve for the work they put into what they do. The school marching band performance is a staple at high school and college football games especially at halftime. One of the best performances ever might have been this past Saturday in Columbus, Ohio as Ohio State played host to Nebraska.

The Ohio State marching band is one of the best in the country and they proved it again last Saturday at halftime. The band put together a tribute to video games that included parts of Mario, Zelda, Halo, Pokemon, Tetris and many others that was completely awesome! I'm not a fan of Ohio State, but this was pretty incredible as you can see below.
