We were proud to show our Iowa spirit with new t-shirts Amanda and Nolan bought for us. We loved being part of the marching band family for the evening.
We got to march in with and sit next to the band for the big Michigan Iowa game tonight.
We even became friends with Herky, the team mascot!
The highlight for us was the half-time show written and directed by Nolan. It was a salute to veterans and was a real crowd pleaser! We were so proud of him and the band!
And, to top off a great day, we were sitting in the end zone as the football sailed through the uprights as the time ran out, clinching the upset of Iowa over Michigan. Previously undefeated Michigan was a 22 point favorite to win! It's been a week of upsets, and this was one we really enjoyed!
If you'd like to see the marching band show, here it is. I zoomed in on Nolan at 2 minutes and 49 seconds.
