Sad Cowbell Girl: Fiesta Bowl's Lonely Hero

When I saw Michael McDonald sing the National Anthem, I thought no way the Fiesta Bowl could get a better hero. But then the Boise State's Blue Thunder Marching Band took the field during halftime, and the country was introduced to Sad Cowbell Girl. 

What Will Ferrell did for the cowbell with enthusiasm and energy, this Bronco did the same, but with apathy and melancholy. 

Poor girl, the game's not even over and she's well on her way to becoming an Internet meme
