Dallas Cowboys for reasons I don't remember used to be called "America's Team." (Are they still?)

Troopers have been called "America's Corps."

For that reason alone, Dallas Cowboys = Troopers.

Good call Michael. I forgot about that one. Here's to the Troopers winning a championship before the Cowboys do. lol

OK, here's the tangent. A corps should do a Football Highlights Show using music like the old Monday Night Football theme (http://www.myxer.com/ringtone/id/1775855/jimmy/Sports-Themes-MONDAY-NIGHT-FOOTBALL-NFL-theme-song/), NFL Films theme music, etc. These all have lots of brass and drama. Crown, maybe?

I'm not totally for that idea. Not that it wouldn't be a great show, but that seems like a marching band kind of thing (literally, that's exactly the kind of show a marching band would do).

Besides, I'm a believer in keeping sports and drum corps as separate as possible for obvious reasons. It's bad enough that we use the same field.

Crown Avon HS did that in 2004, actually.

I would say that BD = 49ers... Of the eighties and early nineties... Steve young once said of those teams that anything short of the NFC Championship game was considered a failure. For the Devs, anything short of the Top 3 could be considered the same.

Crossmen = Indianapolis Colts (formerly known as Baltimore Colts)

You know why.
