This is sooo true!!  It would be fantastic to see both on the field together at retreat, maybe 2019!!  So proud of SOA this year. They really surprised a lot of us, in a good way. 

They were a fan favorite at the BLL last night.

I see Boston moving ahead of Crown much more likely than Boston moving down 

The gap between Crossmen and Spirit is too large for it to change in one night IMO -- Crossmen are the stronger corps across the captions even though I personally love Spirits show

I'm a Crossmen fan, but Spirit is our sister corps.  Would an extremely rare tie to get them both into finals be too much to ask for?  :-)

(For those who don't know, there is a longstanding tradition that when Crossmen make Finals and Spirit don't, the Crossmen form a delta at retreat.  If it's the other way around, Spirit forms a cross.)

Is it too late to Crowdfund a tie for 12th place between Spirit and Crossmen?

Where do we send the check?

Send it to Mandarins. No tie necessary.

This blog post recounts how it all got started.  It's really one of the great bits of Drum Corps lore that highlights the better side of the activity.

Google "Crossmen Spirit of Atlanta connection" and a lot of info comes up.

That @KVG_DC just referenced.

The Cadets will be on fire tonight. And their score will stay the same or drop. Slotting in DCI is real.

I am holding out hope that Cadets will take out Cavies tonight or tomorrow night.

Ahhhh the veritable "everyone gets a trophy" final year. I am so glad there are no more ties.
