I’m a Blue Devils fan these days, but it is hard to imagine too many things that can help grow drum corps more than having a completely “new” DCI World Champion once in a while. A Bluecoat win is a win for everybody. The more parity in a competitive activity, the more meaningful experience it is for the fans, and for the participants.
In any given season, if the fans don’t know who will legitimately win DCI Finals until the very night of DCI Finals – then you have created something awesome. Obviously, DCI is there right now. That’s cool.
Congratulations Canton Bluecoats!
p.s. Please send some of that new found Ohio DCI World Champion energy to the Cleveland Browns. They could use a lift. 🙂
