  1. I’ve been a Round Rock fan for a while, and was a massive defender of them in 2017 and 2019. But I just don’t think it happens this time. It’s not the kids—they’re doing their job and pushing hard. It’s the show. I would love to be proved wrong, but…
  2. I was sitting in a far recess of the 300 club level for a work call, and the crowd was so ON FIRE for TWHS that I heard the applause clearly, distracting me from my call and reminding me of the joy I was missing.
  3. You’re my favorite!!! If you’re in Indy I would love to offer an adult beverage as thanks for the highlight of the season after prelims or finals!
  4. Area E Area I Tough night for Houston (also don't flood my DMs asking for the recaps).
  5. One off. And I'm told that the band I missed was incredibly close. One slightly off judge was enough.
  6. I know there's a little bit left tonight, but I already have my prediction/medium take. Every finalist from Saturday night that is eligible to repeat, will. And you only have to look a tenth away For the second band joining FloMo Tuesday.
  7. Flower Mound had a run with a lot of timing and tuning issues. Tuning is an easy fix, but the kids are super spread out across the field the entire show and they’re juggling tons of responsibilities. Unless they had booked time at The Star or Jerry World, it’s also their first Dome performance of the season while all of their competition has had two runs already. However, the show itself is incredible. And the biggest difference from Vitrify is that the kids are bought in and performing. I think that’ll take them a long way this week. Medal is far far FAR from out of the question tomorrow and Saturday. and the outro SLAYED me.
  8. The Marching Band from Flower Mound Presents a lot of Joy to be Found But if a Championship is to be Won They need to pull out a better Run
  9. Indiana split the difference pretty well for Semi-State, which is effectively their State prelims. The six closest draw for the first spot. Then for each following spot, you add the next closest group. That way, the closer groups are more likely to go first, but can still pull spots to the end. The furthest groups can at least spare an early performance—which could even potentially save a group thousands of dollars that not every program or school district necessarily has.
  10. A whole lot of Austin in the next ten‼️‼️, plus the medalist and the other five finalists!
  11. The only bands to have ever swept captions in San Antonio finals are LISD-North bands. Marcus 2007, 2012 Flower Mound 2016 Hebron 2021
  12. I loved that Pearland made finals in 2019, but their show stood out for being waaay easier than the rest of the field come finals. This year’s show took a massive step up in visual and especially music demand, and the band worked hard and rode it into finals again. They’re the first band from Houston, outside of TWHS, to back-to-back in San Antonio since Spring a decade ago. I hope they ride this wave for a long while. They’ve arrived as far as I’m concerned, and cemented themselves as Houston’s clear #2.
  13. Lucky draw for finals. They picked their slot for prelims because they won.
  14. Pearland!! My stanning since the seasonal leaves show is still fully vindicated!
  15. Oh yes! I forgot that Westfield won the very first San Antonio Super Regional. Barely there, but there!
  16. LD Bell is the only band to have done all those things, but not in the same year.
  17. I remember seeing Prosper in 2019 in San Antonio prelims and seriously expecting to see them again later that evening. Not sure this would have been their year, but I’m also pretty sure their time isn’t far away.
  18. Dobyns-Bennett won’t win a caption or medal in this field, but the show itself is extremely special and I think it’ll give them the wheels to get into finals—perhaps with comfort.
