I realize I haven’t
bored thrilled viewers with a college marching band or fight song post for quite a while, so I’ve decided I’d better do one – except that this one involves only trumpets.
It is a tradition at the University of Notre Dame for the trumpet section of the marching band to gather under the Golden Dome of the Main Building one hour before kick-off on home game days and play “Notre Dame Our Mother,” and “The Notre Dame Victory March” to a standing-room only crowd.
Notre Dame’s athletic teams are called “The Fighting Irish”. As my mother would say, the trumpet player shaking his fist right at the end of the video has “the map of Ireland on his face”.
I suppose blogger Naturgesetz, being in Boston and likely a fan of Notre Dame’s bitter Catholic college rival Boston College, would gag watching this video. ——— Sorry! 😕
