The only activity where your proffesor can legaly yell at the top of his/her lungs: "WORK THE POLE!!!!"
While marching and spinning the colorguard hears a faint voice above the marching band:

A league of trained assassins whose goal is to eliminate every last member of the marching band. They accomplish this by hitting instruments with their flags and encouraging members with an reward system for hitting certain instruments (Sousaphone is 1 point because it is so big, Piccolo is 10 points because it is so small). Do not be deceived by their innocent looks because you will regret every second you do.
Person 1: Dang that girl looks so nice.

Person 2: She's not; she's in color guard.

A group of highly talented teenage girls. They must be able to dance, spin various pieces of equipment, hold their head up and portray emotion, and march in time, and pretend that its not negative 100 degress outside. It is the colorguard's job to bring life to a piece of music. They must be able to use their bodies, along with their equipment, to give the music a personality. Contrary to popular belief, they are not the rejects of the Cheerleader, the dance team, ext. Any guard girl could stand in front of a crowd and scream "Go Team Go!" however I really doubt a cheerleader could pick up a rifle, throw a quad, and catch it, all while holding your head high and portraying the emotion of the show. Many members of the band/drumline like to blame the colorguard when the band/drumline does bad, however, it is usually not their fault. I say usually because every group, band, colorguard, && drumline, will have a bad show sometime. Putting that aside though, it is the colorguard's ability to come back from a bad show and be 10X fiercer then last week that makes them so freakin' ah-mazing. Never try to understand a conversation between guard girls. Being in a colorguard mean developing the best friendships ever and therefore, many inside jokes that you will never understand. In conclusion, colorguard is ah-mazing && anyone who gets on here and says they aren't should just go ahead and go have sexual intercourse with themselves, mkay? No, really, just do it!
Person 1: Dude, the Colorguard is Hott!
Person 2: I know right!
Colorguard is ah-mazing, mkay?

+. an amazing activity where great choreography movements and the use of a flag, sabre, or rifle make an excellent show.

+. takes lots of practice.

+. have to learn how to march, jazz run, stay on count, memorize every movement, be prepared for the worst, get to places in a limited amount of counts, toss, drop-spins, plus be graceful during it all.

+. being a guardie is a great part of life. i wouldnt trade it for anything.

+. i dont know if id call it a sport. we do compete just like cheerleaders. so i suppose if cheerleading is a sport so is guard.
wow! did you see that guardie? she was amazing!

A section of the marching band that spins/tosses a variety of different "weapons" including sabers, rifles, flags, and air blades. Generally gets made fun of by members of the winds and drum line. Guard members are the only ones who can describe how it feels to toss high into the air and catch perfectly, while staying in step and looking pretty. Because really, that's the only point of the guard; to look good.
Angry band member: "I hate color guard. They're always in the way, and they have it so easy. Everyone knows they only join because they suck at their instrument and aren't good enough to be on the cheer squad or dance team."

Guard member: "Hello, we have to run around you guys the entire parade, have practices twice as long as yours and three times as often. I play first chair on sax along with french horn and clarinet, AND I'm on the varsity cheerleading and dance teams. Piss off."

A group of people dedicated to representing thier school the best way possible by spinning flags, rifle, sabers and other equipment. This group marches with a marching band and compliments the music they play through the use of color, body movement, and equipment.
Everyone in the COLOR GUARD did a beautiful toss just as the cymbals crashed.
