In the Key of Geek
Posted on Thursday, November 8 @ 21:50:22 Eastern by JP_HurhSo what if Cal's football season has tanked. The marching band picked up the slack by putting together one of the best halftime shows ever.
I was at the game, standing next to former GR editor, now turncoat traitor and sometimes double agent, Joe Dodson, when the videogame-themed halftime was called out. We were, of course, critical. Since when did Mario and Luigi ever defeat bad guys by stabbing them? Why didn't the tetris blocks disappear when matched? What kind of finishing move was Oski's uppercut? A botched one, Dodson quipped.
You miss a couple things on this video, though. For one, the last bit is the lowering of the flag, a la Super Mario. And when Mario is running into the blocks of band members, they pop out coins. Bear in mind that this video was taken from the wrong side of the stadium (thus, the tetris blocks go up rather than down).
Go Bears! Finish Him!
