Virginia Tech is a big part of our lives. It’s where Ryan and I met, fell in love, and got engaged. Some of our best friends and favorite people are also Hokie Alums. Blacksburg will always be a second home to us and the gorgeous Tech campus will always take my breath away. But there is nothing like the feeling of being in Lane Stadium for a Saturday football game.
This will be our 2nd football season since 1999 that we haven’t been to a single game. On Saturdays you can usually find us streaming a game from the computer onto our TV, which is fine but not quite the same. You can imagine our delight in finding that the game was going to be on ESPN all the way out here!
We cheered, took a siesta at half time (because we have an 18 month old), and when Tech started stinking it up in the second half we realized that we forgot to put out VT barbie, who is somewhat of a floozy, but she’s cheered with me for 12 seasons so it’s cool.
Number 59 was not amused.
And when the game turned into a real nail biter we got off the couch and cheered and trash talked and curled up into the fetal position. Okay that last one was just me. Until we emerged victorious and Abigail emerged from a 3 1/2 hour nap!And it was fun to pretend for a minute that we were back in beautiful southwest Virginia watching the game munchkin-free….but then again she’s a pretty cute future Hokie…So wherever you are and whoever your team, may you have a happy football weekend, too!
