Outstanding Musical Performance

By now, I'm sure you've seen or at least heard about the amazing things that The Ohio State Marching Band has been doing this season.  Every week they put together a complicated halftime show that is full of brand new music, new marching drills, and fresh and exciting new movements.  I have had the pleasure of seeing several halftime shows live in The 'Shoe, but last week's show was simply beyond words.  If you haven't seen it yet, here is one version I found on YouTube:

Have you also heard how the band has saved thousands of dollars in printing costs by "going digital" and putting all their drills on iPads instead of paper?
