Five and a half hours is too much for even me...

Yeah. That's right.

5.5 hours of watching the DCI quarter finals in a Richmond movie theater. I didn't even know about Drum Corps International!!

Why would I? I'm from NY, where we have professional sports teams to make us happy....and our high school sports are lousy.

Unless you count lacrosse, which, apparently, most Midwesterners don't get.

So many of the Drum corps teams were from like Ohio, Georgia, and Wisconsin..places where high school sports actually matter.........I can only imagine why.

Also, the chunky chick/gay guy factor is really high.

Kinda like SCA, but with a horn section.

I did have a good time, but I didn't realize just how long it went on for.

Check it out...it's bands that aren't affiliated with a school. The kids are from 16-21 years old, and the drum lines are incredible...

I will be watching the finals on ESPN 2 on Sept 6th..

Someone please remember to remind me....

Go Blue Devils! Go Cadets!

_____Not familiar with DCI, but it sounds a lot like Bagpipe and Drums. I like Black Watch, or any kind of Pipe and Drum Corps. That was my favorite part of going to parades or the county fair when I was a kid. I love the pageantry. /// I don't have cable, so you'll have to give me the "blow by blow" on the DCI. (I bet it would sound really good in Surround Sound, which is also something that I don't have.)

You can watch it on youtube..and you know, I have been to Scotland a few times, but we always miss Black Watch for some reason. Black Watch is our family Tartan, too.

Did I mention my mom is from Glasgow?

Go Morton Football Club!!!!!!!!!!!!!
