Their repertoire leads me to believe I. won’t be led down a tunnel of darkness and despair.  Or some kind of Marvel comic book translated to the drum corps field where I have no idea what I’m watching.

In the 12(?) years that Ryan George has arranged for Boston, Boston has not produced anything greater than a 5th place hornline. Don't think it's very far fetched to be extremely skeptical that they're somehow going to win the Ott this year when other corps also have their better arrangers returning. I will be interested to see how SCV fares without JD Shaw

To be fair, Boston hasn’t had the talent in the earlier years with Ryan.  Now there is Gino and his team there to build and nurture the talent and enable Ryan to create more with his writing and Gino to pull it off.  Bostons brass has greatly improved  since Gino has been there.  Last years Boston Brass was really good and some more knowledgeable than me put them on par or slightly better than Bloo.  We will soon see everyone and can then more appropriately compare the reality with reputations.

The rep really grew on me. I was on the fence, but I kinda bought into it.

Boston’s show is complete.  Very full.  Has been done for over 2 weeks now.  They had finished it about a week and a half before ST was done.  Now they finished 2 full days in DuBois,PA and are in Erie, PA for I think, 4 days.  Then to Detroit.  Detroit will be exciting for corps as the east gets underway.

I just meant this is the least I have personally seen going into the season.  My video sources were kinda bone dry this year 😂

Understood.  I saw people were seeing secret videos.  I guess I’m not connected well enough to that dark side of dc.  LOL.  I’ve seen Boston live at ST and CIP and I can tell you, their brass is really good.  Big at 80 brass and a little different sound than previous recent years,by way of Ryan’s writing and instrumentation.

Cavies in 11th??? lol….have you ever watched drum corps before? You do realize that the corps lowest placement in 35+Years was 9th in 2015 and that was because 90% of the corps caught a stomach virus. They had to drop out of competitions because there weren’t enough members to field a show. They’ve only not been in the Top Six four times since 1985.

To be fair, those aren't predictions. Those are a wish list. Predictions are meant to be taking your best educated guess. Clearly not happening with this one, LOL.

The norovirus outbreak killed the momentum that had been building something fierce.  I felt so bad for them.  I also shuddered thinking about the bathroom situation.  When I had it, I didn’t know whether to sit on the throne or kneel before it.  I wished my own death several times during that 24 hour period.   At least, it’s short lived is the only good thing  I can say about it.
