RCA Dome comes down today

It's not quite going out with a BOOM, but the RCA Dome is being deflated today. (Much to the delight of some drum corps fans. I, for one, always thought it was a pretty bad place to hear a drum corps performance and have high hopes for the new place across the street.)

You can watch it be "deflated" at 10:30 a.m. Indy time by going here.

(Thanks Jim for the heads-up)

DCI Championships radio segment from WFIU

This is not specific to the Colts, but I thought many people who follow the virtual cooktruck would appreciate it. An acquaintance of ours produced a radio segment/news feature about drum corps, which first aired the week following DCI finals. In spite of a few minor reporting errors that only we die-hard fans would notice, it's a really wonderful segment. It runs about 10 minutes 30 seconds. The podcast is available here. Just click on the "play" button.
