Airbands: More Entertaining Than a Broken Leg
After 2.5 hours of Airbands, I craved a quick and painless death. But I conquered my hasty reactions and blogged about it instead.
The show began at 7:00 last night and entertained me for a brief spell. But it refused to end. Who the hell willingly spends three hours of their nights to experience the bastard child of a threesome between PSU homecoming gusto, cheap rap beats, and Disney Channel original movies?
Hundreds and hundreds of students did attend… so I guess a lot of folks get their kicks out of such pornographic fantasies. See the Facebook album for additional photos.
I must confess, many groups expressed success and possessed finesse. But I digress. Here are some acts that impressed:
Best History Lesson: The “Wild Wild West” dance crew. Didn’t know cowboys wore Uggs.
Most Sculpted Physiques: The Male Gymnastics Team. Dayum!
Best MC: Bronne Bruzgo. He appeared on the Real World, so he’s cool, right?
Best Holiday Mashup: Epic dance/battle scene between Santa Claus and a legion of costumed Halloweeners.
Personal Favorite: Sigma Zeta Gamma Alpha, or was it Beta Kappa Psi Omega… Delta Nu Tau Iota? It’s all Greek to me.
Best Crowd Response: Atlas THON. The music machine choked and silence ensued during their rendition of “I Want It That Way.” But the hyped-up crowd belted out the end of the song for them!
Best Attempt: When the music died, someone attempted to start the “We Want the Lion” chant. Turns out we didn’t want the lion.
Worst Costumes: The guys wearing the PSU whiteout shirts. Football and Jesus references? No thank you.
Best Movie Spinoff: Toy Story. Buzz, Woody, Bo Peep, and the rest of the crew performed “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” and “Barbie Girl,” among others.
Best Michael Jackson Cover: There were about 50, so I forget.
Official Winner: Lion Ambassadors. Those overachievers have their paws in everything.

We think Nittany Lions like Makenna Marisa and Parker Washington are more than deserving of their own trading cards.
