VCU in NYC: HAVOC on the TODAY Show

Quote:
At about 7:30 a.m. Friday, the Virginia Commonwealth University Pep Band, The Peppas, drove around Manhattan in New York City in a double-decker bus and even did this, from twitter:

@VCUathleticBand WE'RE ON THE TODAY SHOW RIGHT NOW!

Yes, HAVOC crashed the TODAY show (no, not the bus). Weatherman and NBC Network TV personality extraordinaire Al Roker even rode on the bus with the band during the Today Show appearance.

VCU plays today at 6:30 p.m. in the Atlantic-10 Men's Basketball Conference Tournament. The channel lineup in for today's game: Comcast (10), DirecTV (643), Dish Network (9515) & Verizon FiOS (575).

Boom:

The play by play radio voice of the VCU Rams, Robby Robinson tweeted:
@RobbyVCU While your band was sleeping, @VCUathleticBand got up before the sun and provided about $500k worth of pub for #VCU. #thanks #LetsGoVCU
