The "Finals" is on Discovery Channel as I type.

35,000 "Fans" in a farmer's field, watching home made machines toss pumpkins for bragging rights.

Partying, lots of beer and BBQ.

Brought to you by Canon, Discover, and the Discovery Channel.

And DCI can't even find a way to keep PBS, let alone ESPN, happy?

Are you kidding me?

Those here who think the DCI BOD is doing things OK are right.

Just OK describes it well.

While corporate America supports chunkin pumpkins during prime time on Thanksgiving night.

It's reality tv. And no one wants a reality show about drum corps....too many potential non family type moments potential. Drinking and bar-b-que are on the very tame side of some of the drum corps days from the past. And please...don't let the teevee crews anywhere near the gym with night vision...or with those DNA black lights. Just sayin.

"PUNKIN CHUNKIN" would actually be a great theme for the Cadets in 2012. Make it happen George, make it happen.

Geaux Tigers on January 9th in the Dome. Yet another NC will be especially sweet againt Bama. Will be there in my old LSU band uniform. I was quartermaster my last three years and "Cooked the Books" so I could keep my uniform. Tiger Band switched to a gold "Blue Devils' uniform that I designed in 83, so they didn't miss my uniform anyway.
