    Ribs are bones, teeth are a type of bone and tusks are a type of teeth so close enough for jazz, oh wait wrong corps for jazz.

    If there suppose to be ribs fine but the first thing I thought in the movie theater was tusks. I don't get ribs at all.

    Spirit / Madison Observation

    Spirit has placed as high as 4th and was a regular staple in the top 12 through most of the 80's beating Madison or placing in the same neighborhood for several years. They've had their own issues and I would hope the Scouts organization and the alumni would be glad they're doing well. Close competition is a good thing and can help give goals to each organization.

    Does anyone know if they'll have the closer on the field for tonight's show?

    Excited to see how Spirit scores tonight. I saw an earlier video, incomplete show and no uniforms, but I liked what was on the field.

    Carolina Crown 2018

    Good show. Best part, or at least most interesting part, is the all female ensemble near the end of the show. I suspect maybe the fact that they're all female (or at least looked that way to me) will also have something to do with the theme at some point?

    2018 Uniforms!

    It doesn't matter weather a corps uses a "traditional" uniform or a "costume," there have been some of each that work and some that don't. Also sometimes guard uniforms/costumes look good with the theme and main corps, sometime they don't. Case by case basis.

    Phantom Regiment 2018

    I liked this years show, at least much better than last year. Music is much better and I think Will is maybe settling in better. Like every other corps, now that the bones are on the field they can start to develop the show theme. They use the hoodies only between sections which Will explained was to be the "Cloak" travelers wear/wore. I think now they can develop the story for each "world." At least I hope they have something planned. In the past Phantom has done an excellent job of that, hope they will this year. I also liked that the battery and trombones played in the on field pit and some other staging. I don't see them using the helmets except for parades etc. as others have stated.

    2018 Uniforms!

    Blue Stars, fitting will help a bit. I didn't mind the corps and guard in same uniform. I don't like the tool belts. They break up the uniform and make everyone look short and clunky and also destroy any sense of line. PR- ok Boston had the worst uniform of the night. The map references are pale and a small part of the uniform and won't be seen from the stands. I also don't like exposed arms. They don't work for me on any corps. No sleeves are cooler but without them when doing body work, there's no line, extension. Cavies- Good Crown- dark which fits the theme but dark unis and dark/dull flags makes everything fade away. Maybe in person it will look better. Bluecoats- very cool overall but I agree with whoever said they don't fit well.

    2018 Predictions

    Agree. The desks seem like a waste. They're constantly moving them around with no real impact or value that I could tell.
  14. Madison Scouts are all "Boy Scouts" (I believe I read it's a special category they all join if not already a Scout). But the " Boy Scouts" are now just the "Scouts" and i believe no longer all male. Therefore I wonder if Madison retains the "Scout" affiliation if they'll have a choice, especially if or more likely when the issue comes up. There's a part of me that likes the all male traditions of Madison and Cavaliers. But there's a part of me that says it's time to move on and be coed. Very mixed feelings.
