    Need 1 GOOD Semi's tic!

    Work and family commitments made Indy look impossible for me this year. Hadn't missed championship week since 2007. Last minute possibility opened up to attend just Friday's Semi Finals. Looking for one GOOD ticket for Friday only. Thanks in advance for the help!!
  3. Don't know if this has been posted here yet, but didn't see it if it has been.......and worst case is you get to watch it again!

    Phantom Regiment 2018

    somebody is live broadcasting concert in the park on Facebook right now
  6. Don't know if anybody has seen this floating around Facebook, but can't help but think of sitting in Indy watching .....No Beginning, No End.....for the first time. A little cut and paste with the recording and we might be onto something. Merlin Perkins and Mutual of Omaha present "Wild DCI Kingdom".
  7. I just found/saw the George Hopkins Support Page on Facebook?????????????? It takes all kinds, I guess.

    Sync rights.......

    sorry for the mis-statement in the original post.....I know it was DCI responsible for sync rights for the DVD's, not Boston's.......I just found it odd to hear the new, stylized vocal version playing behind a car commercial.
  9. Is it simply highest bidder? Who says yay or nay in today's game? Anybody else hear Chris Issac's Wicked Game in interesting places recently? Boston Crusaders couldn't pull off the sync rights to it, so 3+ minutes of their 2017 show disappears on media forever...........but, man......there I was shopping for my latest French hi-performance sports car and what pop's up as the soundtrack for an Alfa Romeo commercial? Wicked?!?!?
  10. so, are we talking Blue Devil ink here or Mandarin Ink???
  11. I don't think they could have found anyone better to lead the Cadets through these times and bring them out the other side better and stronger!

    YEA board resigns

    I don't think they could have found anyone better to right the ship and lead the Cadets through these times and bring them out better and stronger on the other side than Doug Rutherford. Wishing him the best!
  13. Come on, guys. Cut it out.....or at least take it somewhere else. This petty argument has no place in this thread.

    Video edits 2017

    The list of cuts that Barneveld shared shows all five of the "big" cuts to be from the BluRay/DVD sets. The two open class cuts are specifically listed as CD cuts. Is it possible that only the sync rights were the issue and that the five shows listed with the 2:00-3:00+ minute cuts will remain complete on the CD's?
