  1. Recruited on the basis of last year's show making them feel at home?
  2. Those last 3 minutes. I remember being up in the stands going nuts. Didn't matter that it was the third night in a row we'd seen it, it was just crazy time. We'd roar and be half out of our seats then everyone was like "ok hush down, over there now" ROAR. then "shh shh shh, don't miss this..." ROAR.
  3. They've been used well at times. Carolina Crown and BD have had some amazing sabre moments where they'd be scattered across the field and pop up with super high spin tosses and catch the lights 'just so' and create a sparkle effect across the field.
  4. I might have played that the past several seasons. on loop. At a high volume.
  5. Those make me nervous. And they're not even carrying horns and equipment yet.
  6. I could see this. Flo was trying to bust into the Major League Soccer streaming business with DC United and Cincinnati while making overtures to other teams and the league itself. The whole thing was done on promises that they'd be doing specialized content, features, match day things pre and post game, etc. The day of the first game came for Flo to cover and the entire first half was missing because...we never did learn why. It was almost like it was halftime and someone at Flo remembered, "oh yeah, some soccer thing" and hit a switch somewhere. They offered refunds and the
  7. Did they come in a brightly neon colored box? Cause the packaging should be at least as loud as the commercials.
  8. Heh. I liked the first two cheer movies because they’re was so much carryover in the dynamics of cheer and band. While I was never into cheer, the moments of traditions, camps, social pressures, passion, creativity, performances, team building, resilience, being largely misunderstood by those outside of the activity, etc. were all instantly familiar.
  9. There may be a moratorium on Mannequin use after the Cadets show...
  10. Hmm. By this reasoning, if Bloo really wants to have their ensemble in the pit, they could use one of those electronic woodwind instruments and classify it as electronics then? Or would that be 'too close for comfort?"
  11. It drew a gasp out of me too. I was like, "no....he didn't...."
  12. Nah, this goes back to their first season covering and some guy who inferred that the Cavaliers could train their corps harder because they were all guys....he was gone by the next week.
  13. I'm also wondering if the financial considerations (whether they be backlash in the form of pulled donations or increased costs) trumped the designers desire for a 'new toy' musically here given that it passed instructors caucus and then failed.
  14. So. That's over for a couple years. Does Bloo's counter proposal tip their hand that they were on the pro-WW side of things? Will this incur backlash? Will FloMarching send 'investigative reporters' to create stories and get fired within a week for making comments that draw criticism? Winter storylines could be juicy!
  15. No idea, but probably. But the utter lack of demand for them and the thousands of empty seats in the stadium doesn't say much for the future of tickets sales either.
  16. Fair enough. It seems kinda serious this time though. Ticket prices for NFL games not against teams near by were going for like $4 by the end of the season. Games against nearby teams were going for more because the demand was actually coming from away fans. Dannyboy's pocket might be feeling the reality. I don't really follow the sport anymore anyway. it's just something that comes up on the news.
  17. Local CBS News down here in DC had more coverage of "can't wait for the Ravens game" hype than "the DC team is firing errrybody" news.
  18. But getting thrown into the Delta quadrant and having to work together as one crew sort of muddles up the differences after awhile.
