Very proud - they are hanging in there with the heat. And amused by all the folks going ga-ga over their relative standing so far. Certainly pumped that they're doing better than last year, and enjoyi

For as progressive as Boston is with some elements of their show (costuming, props, etc), they had probably the most straight-forward raw drum corps show of the night. Insane drill, challenging music,

Prior to BAC's show, lots of folks chanted  "Eat em up Boston." Well I would say they didn't eat, the DEVOURED!!!! Amazing show!

Periscope?

Yep. Jagged Line had a big hole in the middle of the program they could never close—the ballad never worked the way they wanted it to—and the staging was too hard to evolve.

Insane drill, challenging music, ridiculous guard work, and all executed at a level that Boston simply hasn’t achieved in the past. The only brass line so far that hasn’t been mic’d to some degree. I really believe they’re executing at a top 5 level and then some.

It’s periscope I know but I thought Boston looked and sounded great.  That drumline is relentless. 

I'm a little bit partial to that drumline -- quads especially -- but I gotta agree with you!  :)

I see Boston taking over Cavaliers by Nashville. It’s a much more musical show.

Nope, they won the first show in Indy, then started losing to crown and others.

Nope, they won every show until SVC beat them in Minneapolis.  I was there.
