Beowulf is slain, but one of the horn members just took out the monster who killed him.

OK, either Beowulf isn't dead or he's in the afterlife wearing a white robe.


Yeah, this was very unclear. Beowulf is supposed to end with the hero, now an old king, slaying the dragon but dying in the process, and a key point is that this leaves his country without a leader to protect them from their neighbors.

All right. I am in the stands. I am on side two, about the 33 yard line, and about 2/3 up so I can get a good view of the drill and still hear the music well.

RHR is really jazzing up the joint. A good number of park and blows interspersed within the drill, which is high in demand for a SoundSport group.

Great buildup both in the music and in the drill. Corps now center field in a block formation, but they blow out individually and randomly until they form a company front and push forward to the front

DCP won't let us type the title of Guardians' show!

You know, I hope Shelob doesn't show up for this show...

Trivia: the "lob" in Shelob is the Old English word for spider.

In The Hobbit, Bilbo taunts the spiders of Mirkwood with the epithet "lazy lob".

VERY Day of the Dead in this show. Also very Coco, so great timing on the theme, BDB.

As noted above, Caballeros beat them to it last year.

It looks like the judges from last night's Open Class shows switched tonight. (The announcer also noted that one of them missed her flight in Chicago and drove here.) And also that this set is more easy-going than the others. Scores improved more here than in Metamora.

My party of seven all liked Legends' show the most, although I correctly predicted the judges would still have BDB on top.

At least Legends grabbed first in G.E. 2, and held on to second in every other caption.

Scores from Metamora, since that show didn't get a thread, with one big jump::

3. 73.95  Spartans

4. 71.25  Louisiana Stars

5. 70.30  River City Rhythm

7. 62.30  Colt Cadets

8. 60.25  Heat Wave

 

Spartans were third or worse in every category except Music Analysis, where they grabbed second, and Guard, where they barely held on to first.

Second year with the corps, if I remember correctly?
