  8. seems only fitting that one might feel persecuted for their views regarding a show about the witch trials!
  9. OK, my take on them.....not that it matters or should.........and I am not one that is opposed to costumes v uniforms, although it does start to bother me when I can't tell who is performing on the field without a program! for me, it's the color palette combo that is the bother. I do not care for the weathered/oxidized copper in the arms against the red of the legs. It strikes me as visually clumsy and busy. How vital to the story telling is the copper, truly? Given the nod to BAC's past with the gray vest and shako (I loved what they did with RISE), if the arms carried through with the red and black from the bottom half of the outfit, I think you would have one that still identifies as BAC on first viewing.....updated and modified and fresh.....and yet more tailored to the show theme and meeting the newer demands that are required from today's marching members.
  10. Thanks for the reminder.......I didn't go back and look at the vids, was just trusting my failing memory!
  11. When the Cavaliers included Nature Boy in XtraordinarY in 2011, they were unable to acquire the rights and it was deleted from all end of the year media. Is that no longer a problem??
  12. well.......it's not how fast you mow, it's how well you mow fast!!
  13. He did say for the next couple of seasons......looks to me like parts can be changed out under the coat/vest and with the shako overlays.....kind of similar to what Cavaliers introduced last year?
