    You guys know... Good grammar is the difference between knowing you're shi-t and knowing your shi-t. Sorry, had to circumvent the filter for the comedic effect.

    I would argue this. Staunchly. And I would win, in embarrassing fashion for you.

    Plus the $1000 fee the Band paid to have a 'channel.' What a racket.
  4. Now you get to tell me why my argument is narrow-minded? Just because you disagree with me? My argument is extremely well-founded, at least given the example BigW used. You resorted to insults. Why? My point is simply that Eras are Eras, and no one is better (or worse) than any other.
  5. Re-read the sentence and it should be self-explanatory. If it's not, then ponder this question: What was the "Golden Era" of Major League Baseball? Use your same criteria above. Hint: I marched in the 1990s, when Star was awesome and Phantom won their first and Crown was growing and Glassmen were awesome and drill evolved and show design became a real thing and continuity began and percussion writing became actually musical and there were some legendary musicians, designers, and arrangers that drove the activity forward and established new paradigms for the activity. MY era was the Golden Era. Right?
  6. It's always these guys isn't it? The ones that feel like they need to come in and crap on everyone else's Corn Flakes? If I decide tomorrow I'm going to stop eating at McDonalds, I don't go stand outside the restaurant and tell everyone, and reminisce about how it was different 50 dayum YEARS AGO. I just kind of... stop going. People who want to enjoy a tasty Filet O'Fish can still do it without me standing at the door telling them how stupid they are for liking that sandwich. And newsflash - there wasn't a Golden Era. Those kind of comments are the pinnacle of ignorance.

  8. When did halftime get hijacked?

    We don't host. Closest contest to our school is 1h 10m away.
  9. When did halftime get hijacked?

    We're talking about high schools at this point.
  10. When did halftime get hijacked?

    No, it is FACT in my area, it is not an opinion. An opinion has no factual basis. I respected some of you a lot more until tonight.
  11. When did halftime get hijacked?

    You took my quote out of context. I was referring to the student body supporting the Band at home football games. Very few ever travel to long distance events - be it football, basketball, band contest, cross country meets, etc.
  12. When did halftime get hijacked?

    It's not an opinion. I'm active in the field, it's a fact. You'd be intelligent not to argue the facts of someone who is knowledgeable and out there on Friday nights (and in the hallways every day).
  13. When did halftime get hijacked?

    Why? Why can't it be to showcase their REAL purpose - their continuance of their MUSIC education? Can't it be different for different places? And who are YOU to decide anyone's purpose? The world doesn't revolve around some 1970s Texas idea of football.
  14. When did halftime get hijacked?

    Probably the same amount of the student body that attends a football game if it were an hour and a half away... very few, but a few.
  15. When did halftime get hijacked?

    I disagree, and argue that nowadays - most of the student body is happy to support their friends in other activities. High School kids these days are a lot different than they were even 10-12 years ago.
