The Ohio State University Marching Band, or The Best Damn Band in the Land around these parts, made their Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade debut Thursday, supplying the first music of the parade shortly after it kicked off after 9 a.m.

TBDBITL, directed by Dr. Christopher Hoch, started the day with a 3 a.m. rehearsal. Once showtime hit, the band paid homage to New York with the classic “Lullaby of Broadway” before jamming into “Fight the Team Across the Field” which elicited a huge cheer from fans watching the parade.

Here's fan footage of that Saturday great:

The band played a New York City Skull Session at the Manhattan Center Thursday and it's safe to say the Big Apple no longer gives any damns about the whole state of Michigan.
