Time for another either drum corps rant...this time about the drum lines...specifically, the snare and tenor harnesses.
Dear corps directors...when you have a predominately white top with your new unis -- the ones that don't allow for the harness to be worn underneath the top -- is it TOO much to ask that you paint the #### thing to match? Or at least use a chrome rig?
Looking at YOU, Santa Clara Vanguard, with your huge BLACK harnesses over a white top...REALLY destroys the look you're going for, especially when the harness also covers the red splash up top.
This is nothing new, of course...I still wonder how Bill Cook couldn't afford a can of black paint or 2 when he funded Star of Indiana for 1985....pink jackets, black pants....and that "nice" splash of white sticking out from the bottom of the jacket.
Come on, you guys...Bloo at least had white and chrome hardware last year...AND they painted the shoulder hooks to match the shirt underneath. Can't you guys put a LITTLE effort into it? (Again....SCV take note)
Bloo gets a pass this year because the black shoulder hooks and belly pad DOES match with the rest of the white uni/black trim Bob Fosse look they're going with this year.
But SCV??? In the words of George Zingali..."Are you shittin' me?"
