MOB comes onto the field and forms...
1986 marks the one-hundredth anniversary of the Statue of Liberty. The MOB would like to mark this occasion by honoring those who have formed the basis of our society – the immigrants. Let's now pay tribute to the "huddled masses of wretched refuse from the teeming shores."
I Want to Live in America
usual immigrant show opening
The choice to leave one's native land can be very difficult. Then again, sometimes it's very easy. Take Libya... please!
Colonel Moammar Gadhafi wanted to make life as hard for American tourists as he does for the Libyan people. When push came to shove, however, the U.S. showed that Gadhafi's defense was about as good as the Longhorns'. And for all his boasting, Gadhafi, like Edwin Simmons, found himself caught with his pants down.
American aircraft beat the hell out of Libyan aircraft painted in orange and white.

The MOB would like to recognize a very special group of immigrants. These people have let nothing stop them in their pursuit of the American Dream. Against all odds, they have dodged all obstacles, including the Immigration Service, in their persistence to live and work in America — the land of the free and second home to some of the best synchronized swimmers south of the Rio Grande.
Far From Over
Show Assistants positioned on the Mexican side of the field do a synchronized swimming routine and try to cross the Rio Grande at the same time.
Two hundred years ago, the Yankees threw the British off this land. Twenty years ago, we welcomed them back with open arms. The British came with guitars instead of grenades, and groups like The Beatles changed the sound of American music forever. Today, the British Invasion is alive and well, even where the munitions still outnumber the musicians.
Twist and Shout
"Twist and Shout"-kind of action
We are a nation of immigrants, brought here by the wealth of opportunity offered by this land, where peoples of all races, creeds, colors...
... and Aggies, flourish with the blessings of Liberty. It is these things which first made our land great, and those who followed Lady Liberty's beacon have kept it great. Please rise as the MOB honors our country.
This Is My Country
Off the field to a standing ovation
