It was an interesting couple of days, to say the least.   Fans of Virginia Tech on Saturday went through the emotional wringer early that Saturday of realizing that, should they win the ACC, they would be facing the Cousins, giving, finally, the Hill folk the chance at getting at those Hokie traitors. Midway through […]
After all of the talk and all of the hype, it was business as usual.   There had been much chatter surrounding this year’s annual Virginia Tech- Hoo game. Most of it centered around the ‘London Miracle’ in Hooville, with the Hoo coach credited with what had been thought a near impossibility, getting Mr. Jefferson’s […]
It certainly was a very interesting Thanksgiving holiday. Four days worth of riding back and forth, up and down Christiansburg Hill between Roanoke and Blacksburg, interspersed with excellent ways of spending my time does make for one. My Thanksgiving got off to a rousing start. I was invited to take the holiday meal with four- […]
It was an interesting Saturday. For the second time this year, the distances along I-95 to where Virginia Tech was judged to be just a bit far. For the second time this year, a Saturday afternoon was spent in my recliner observing two games on my Bravia. All in all, it was not a bad […]
Last weekend was the occasion of Tech’s biannual visit to the University of North Carolina at the People’s Republic of Chapel Hill. Both teams, as well as the tailgate company, pitched in to ensure it was another good one. I relish all Hokie games in the Old North State, in large part because any of […]
My bags are packed, I’m ready to go. Actually, they are. While they are still in the car from last weekend’s trip to Tech to observe the scrimmage and spend money and will be unloaded for laundry just as soon as I get around to it, that a few of us jumped the season’s gun […]
The ACC’s battle royal of a regular season has ended. All 12 of the teams, their handlers, cut men and UCF officials convene in Greensboro. The final seedings and even the identity of fourth team with a Thursday bye was not decided until the last minute of the last game Sunday night. Ratings for the […]
The A-Line Board of Football Experts Maybe it is the city. Virginia Tech last Saturday night dropped its second football games in as many tries in that megalopolis to the south. On the brighter side, the Hokies do remain 5-0 in games played in the rest of North America and beyond. Unfortunately, there are no […]
Football is in the air. Well, at least talk about football. The ACC staged its annual Football Kickoff over a long weekend. For a couple of days, attempts were made to ignore, or at least minimize, the ominous storm clouds that are gathering around league football and paint smiley faces over the whole operation. They […]
Last Saturday night began my annual month or so of actually paying attention to college baseball. Not by coincidence, this period of time just happens to coincide with the NCAA playoffs and College World Series. Well, it beats the NBA playoffs, although there was amusement to be found from watching King James storm off the […]
