The only Blue Devils I don't mind rooting for

Congratulations to all of the corps who competed this past weekend, especially your 2007 World Champion Blue Devils. Personally, I'm particularly proud of Carolina Crown. I predicted a top 5 finish, and I wasn't too far off--one placement and .025 points--but I can't be too mad because they finished higher than they ever have before and they were edged out by .025 by Santa Clara Vanguard, my other favorite corps. Of course, there's the usual withdrawal that takes place at the end of a season of any of the sports/activities I follow... good thing college football/marching season starts in just a few weeks!
