Thanks, Band

What things can you count on every football Saturday? Several things for sure: candlelight dinners, that random dude completely flipping out over yet another bad play, Officer Tim McCarthy, TV timeouts, but above all, the Notre Dame Marching Band. As seniors looking at the tail end of a season that we’re not so proud of, we’d like to say thank you for the amazing antics of the band and to Band Director Kenneth Dye.

Aircraft carriers, Chevys, treadmills … what will he think of next? If we’ve learned anything this semester, we’ve learned that we won’t be let down by the halftime show. The enthusiasm of the band is contagious, and when we’re down by … a lot … we’ll still be cheering and chanting and dancing! So here’s to you, Kenneth Dye, keeping the Notre Dame spirit alive.
