On Saturday I spent a tremendous day following Iona around Manhattan.

The day started at Columbia.  I have looked down on their stadium many times driving over the Henry Hudson Bridge.  The view looking back is rather cool.  The Cornell University Big Red Marching Band (the only real marching band in the Ivy League – just in case you hadn’t heard) played their pre-game concert on the shores of the Hudson.

The game itself (the newly named “Empire State Bowl”) was great for 59 minutes and 20 seconds!  Much better though was the half-time show!

Then it was off to the city for the Sy Katz Parade where the afore mentioned band marches down 5th Avenue from St Patrick’s Cathedral to the Cornell Club on 44th Street which is closed so they can do a concert in the street.

All in all a tremendous day!
