Bobcat marching band to appear on hit NBC game show

ATHENS, Ohio (May 5, 2006) -- Watch the "most exciting band in the land" perform and cheer on Ohio University alumnus Chad Pritchard on the hit primetime game show, "Deal or No Deal."

Seniors and section leaders from Ohio University's Marching 110 and director Richard Suk greeted Pritchard, who served as the Bobcat mascot from 1997-2001, on the set of the game show as he played for one million dollars. The 15 band members flew to Hollywood on Wednesday, April 19, taped the show on Thursday, April 20, and returned home Friday, April 21.

Pritchard's appearance spanned two shows that will air on NBC at 8 p.m., Wednesday, May 10, and Friday, May 12. 

"The coolest thing about the whole trip was that it was a unique experience for the members," Suk said. "Not everyone gets to be on a game show like that. They had a great time."
