It was neat to have the international barbershop competition in Denver this year, and the guys made good use of their "home field advantage". They were aiming for 5th place since medals are awarded for 1st through 5th, and they've never placed higher than 6th. So 31 choruses got up on stage, did their thing, and we listened to the MC announce the winners. They're not 5th. Okay, dare we believe they did well enough to be 4th? They're not 4th. Oh crap, here we go again with the 6th place finish… Wait! Did they really just say…? YES! Sound of the Rockies is 3rd!!! The Pepsi Center just erupted into cheers and applause.
