The Stanford “marching band” has a well earned reputation for goofiness, and a willingness to insult the opposing team even when in bad taste, such as a doing a parody of the Irish potato famine at a Notre Dame game. (Someone should note how few actual Irish seem to suit up for the “Fighting Irish.”)
Last night’s Rose Bowl performance seemed mild. There was a pretend cow, a tip to the Iowans in the stadium to watch their team be humiliated, 45-16. For some reason, ESPN cut away from their performance and showed us a view from the blimp. Weenies!
And let’s not forget this moment, with just a cameo by the band.
