It's the day before the season starts-what is your favorite 2nd place show?

Rats...I should have added Tilt. Truly, that was a winning show.

1987 SCV for the bronze, 2014 Bluecoats gets the silver, and 2009 Carolina Crown takes the gold.

HM's to 1980 27 and 2015 Carolina Crown.

Phantom 89 and 27th 80 without question.  Great iconic shows and also 2 of the biggest screw jobs in DCI history.  

SCV 88 HM

Tough to say:

  • 1980 27th Lancers
  • 1987 Santa Clara
  • 1988 Santa Clara
  • 1989 Phantom Regiment
  • 2002 The Cadets
  • 2014 Bluecoats
  • 2015 Carolina Crown
  • 2016 Carolina Crown

It's probably a toss-up between '88 Vanguard (Phantom of the Opera) and '89 Phantom Regiment (Dvorak New World Symphony)

jw, I like how you think..

The 78/79/80 and 87/88/89 timeframes had some AMAZING 2nd place shows (and I LOVED 2014/2015 2nd shows)...

I'll throw in '75 SCV - perfect GE score and just a great show that had to go up against THAT Madison show...

I thought there was going to be a riot in Indy that night!

 

I thought I was gonna die.  I sit in The first row, 50.  No way that that brass line would lose.  He corrected himself and the vapors ceased.

Happened in 05, too. I'm certain he announced a tie for high brass between Cavies and PR.

1988 SCV

1989 Phantom Regiment 

1993 Star of Indiana 

2015 Carolina Crown

Every single one of these shows (imo) should have won.

2009 Carolina Crown

HM to the 2007 Cadets who I (and a lot of people) HATED at the beginning of the season. By the time finals was rolling around I was hoping that show would win.
