THON, I-Spy Edition
As THON goes on for longer and longer and the hours become later and later, it can be difficult to stay awake and keep that energy up. So we here at Onward State have come up with a THON version of childhood favorite, I-Spy to make the wee morning hours seem less daunting. Whether you’re in the stands, on the floor, or watching from home, see how many of these things you can find!
1. Giant inflatable whale
This whale has been here for the majority of the weekend, staying in the same section. Personally, I would love to see it “swim” around the BJC.
2. Waldo– à la Where’s Waldo
At least two people are walking around the BJC dressed up as Waldo. Find them! Bonus points if you point and scream “I found you” at them.
3. BLVDS lights or Alumni sign in lights
These are probably the coolest signs. They light up!
4. Glammed out fanny pack
Fanny packs are apparently the “go to” accessory for THON with decorations varying from flowers to studs to sequins.
5. Giant inflatable donut
If you can’t sneak real donuts in, an inflatable giant donut is the next best thing.
Arguably, this is the easiest one, because each dancer should definitely be considered a superhero for dancing for 46 hours straight. But there are quite a few people dressed up as actual superheroes. These include Spider-man, Batman, Captain America, and more.
7. Flying elephant hat
This is my favorite of the many, many crazy and unusual hats seen at THON. Apparently, it was last year’s OPP hat, and people are just wearing them this year. But it is adorable either way.
8. American flag decorated something
Flags as capes, flags as shirts, flags as scarves. The American flag is everywhere it seems.
Plungers have apparently become the latest dancing accessory?
10. Dancing fruit or vegetables
There is nothing quite like a dancing banana. Unless, of course, it is a dancing pea pod.
