Stupid Hokies

Ugh! Stupid Hokies...what a disappointing game :( At least when we cheer for the college I went to (University at Buffalo) a loss is expected, so when we win its great, and when we lose its not a big deal. With Tech, it just seems to ruin the whole trip. We're trying not to let it though, because looking back and ignoring the loss we had a great three days visiting with friends and family up in Northern Virginia. We left Saturday morning, took Jake with us and stopped in Blacksburg along the way. In Blacksburg we hit up some bookstores, ate lunch with friends and stretched Jakey's legs with a little game of fetch on the VT drill field. Saturday night, we enjoyed a relaxing evening and home cooked meal by Jon and Sarah, Sunday I got in some QT with my parents, and Sunday night all our friends and family went out to good ole Jimmy's. (A local bar by my parents house). Monday, of course, was Gameday!!!

On another positive note, because of the disappointing loss, Hunter says he's done traveling to see the Hokies play at away games. Which in turn = money in our pocket! woohoo!
We're taking this weekend off from VT football to lick our wounds and instead will distract ourselves by participating in the BLUES, BREWS, and BBQ festival here in Charlotte.
Hunter will be sleeping under the stars friday night in order to start smoking the teams bbq around 3am and have it ready by noon saturday for the judging. He's also entered the bloody mary making contest while I will be the picture of health for the both of us, participating in the Hog Jog 5k run saturday morning. Wish me luck, cause I'm gonna need it! :)
