"Hokie Hokie Hokie High, Tech Tech VPI!"
It's one of my favorite new traditions we have, our annual trip to Blacksburg for Hokie football! We were especially excited this year because of our new camper and as a bonus a bunch of my buddies and old roommates were also going to be down the same weekend. Score!
We decided to let Adam stay home (and warm!) with Grandma and Grandpa which allowed us to get in a round of golf on the Tech course. Talk about memories! Andy and I did a lot of our dating on that golf course, so always fun to go back and relive the awkward conversations and random competitions we'd set up.
Lunch was Macadoos, seriously the best sandwiches and dinner would have been Sharkeys if it hadn't been so crowded. Instead we headed to a new place, the Tap House, where two of my best college buds, John and Dave were hanging out. It was great to all be back together again and we enjoyed reminiscing about how we had me (13 years ago!!) at the bus stop our first night as Freshman. Couldn't have made it through my time there without them, and frankly wouldn't have wanted to.
Game day had everyone up bright and early with grills fired up, mimosas, bloody marys, and I suppose quite a few beers for some, and by 9:00 everyone was well into tailgate mode.
Sadly, VT was unable to pull off a win in overtime to conference rival Maryland, but everyone still returned from the game in good spirits and ready for tailgate part deux! :)
Nothing beats a fall football weekend in Blacksburg, regardless of the outcome, and we'll look forward to heading back next year, and I think we'll bring our little Hokie with us, who knows, maybe he'll be up for a round of golf by then! :)
