If you are just making your way around these parts, I am a college football fanatic. Always have been. My team of choice is, of course, the Virginia Tech Hokies. It has been since day one, see?
I live for those Enter Sandman jumps, key shaking third downs, turkey leg smells, Lets Go Hokies chants and post touchdown high fives.
I can't even remember a fall in my life that hasn't been spent in Blacksburg, either for weekend trips or the last four/fiveish years of college. It is the best place on earth. If you haven't been here, get your booty here asap. But start looking for tickets now... they sell out quickly :)
My momma has already volunteered to watch my babies when the time comes and I need to be in Lane Stadium, but rest assured they will be wearing these no matter what their hoo-lovin' daddy says ;). (Both via Etsy.)
Even though I will likely be living in
enemy territory Charlottesville this fall, I cannot wait to make the short two hour trek back to Blacksburg to root on my Hokies, biting my nails and screaming the whole way :). And I can't wait to sit on my couch and root them on during away games, waving my VT flag proudly and likely annoying the neighbors, haha.
We may not quite be the SEC, but we are on our way up and I will be proud to say I have been there since the beginning, crying after losses as a young child (oooorrr after our bowl loss in Janualry), celebrating wins in DT Blacksburg, and standing in all elements just for my boys.
Anyone else ready for September?
