On Saturday, The Ohio State University marching band performed a half-time routine during a home game against Nebraska that paid homage to videogames like Super Mario Bros., Pokémon, Halo, and The Legend of Zelda.

While part of me wishes Sonic or Metroid had merited a shout-out, I’m just enjoying the mental picture of O.S.U. alumni of a certain age wondering what the heck a star has to do with falling blocks and a galloping horse. (Epona, we will never forget you!)

Oh, right, O.S.U. beat Nebraska 63-38. Obviously.
