What? A second post? In one day?
Yep. For those who didn’t get to see the Notre Dame Band during halftime of Saturday night’s game at Chicago’s Soldier Field versus Miami, here’s the video.
Now don’t even ask me which one Domer is because no way could I say!
Very cool!!! How exciting! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for watching!
And right here in CHICAGO!
He was surprised to see “the streets folded up” so early — by college kids’ standards, that is! And he said it was really cold (like it’s not cold in South Bend, ha!). Loved seeing the shots of the Chicago skyline on TV, though!
Wow, I didn’t realize how many are in that band. It’s huge! I love how they’re right in step!
It is huge — somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 members. And they work really hard, almost like having a part time job! Thanks for watching.
What a great band. Glad i got to see the plaids from your previous band post.
I’d bet that you could pick The Domer out from anywhere in the stands.
And you’d probably lose that bet, Oma! You’d be surprised how many of those guys marching all together look like Domer — I can’t pinpoint it, but they have a “certain look.” Still, if I saw Domer from a distance walking, yeah, I’d recognize his step immediately! Thanks for watching.
Ah, those uniforms make it nearly impossible to tell who is who. And they are trained to march the same way – not their normal gait, so I’m not surprised you have trouble finding him! I enjoyed the video…thanks for sharing it 🙂
Thanks for watching, Janna. If your son keeps up with the Band, he could be doing this in a few years (but let’s not rush time, right?!). It still amazes me how they can bring together so many students from all across the country who have different marching and playing styles, then make them blend as one!
