[Video] Blue Band Performs ‘Game of THON’ Halftime Show

The Blue Band put on a real crowd-pleaser at halftime last night, forming itself into two warriors in a fight against pediatric cancer, “Game of Thrones” style.

The show’s theme was the history of television and featured dedications to Star Trek, Friends, Family Guy, and other shows before its grand finale. The videoboard showed images from Thrones and played “Rains of Castamere” (the import of which should make Thrones fans scratch their heads, but hey), then broke into its warrior formations as “Game of THON” in Thrones-style lettering emblazoned the big screen. While the band played the famous Thrones theme song, a Four Diamonds warrior bested a pediatric cancer warrior in combat.

It’s a lot cooler in video than in writing, so I’ll stop here. The Thrones-related bit begins at 7:02.
