On the Wrong End of Deja Vu


Three years ago, I stood in Lane Stadium cheering until my throat hurt for the Hokies to beat No. 2 Miami. My escort for the evening was a dear friend who is a VaTech alum and although I didn't really have a dog in the fight, the amazing weather, pre-game tailgating and the amped atmosphere in the stadium made it easy to get caught up in the vibe the Hokies were throwing out that day. Thus, I cheered myself hoarse and jumped up and down like a loon. So imagine my distaste to find myself not at all karmically rewarded for that night's generosity of spirit as I stood in Lane Stadium this past Thursday night watching the Hokies dismantle my own team. A couple veteran Hokie players would later tell reporters that the game reminded them of that night three years earlier. I would agree, but with one glaring exception: the wrong team won this time.

Sad times for the Tigers...hope we see a better performance this weekend. Fun times with you though and your fun friend B and their enormous cooker/smoker. Please pass along our thanks, a good time was had by all...at least until the game started and our team sucked it up.

Regs- Will do! Daytime events? Fantastic. Evening events? Total disaster.
