It is the Saturday after Thanksgiving and we have two words for you: college football. Reb and I both attended Virginia schools, and if you can’t tell from the colors of our outfits, I graduated from Virginia Tech and Rebecca graduated from the University of Virginia. Despite being tired from lots of Black Friday shopping, we are up and ready to cheer on our colleges in an old fashioned game of foozeball!
At noon, the Hokies take on the Cavaliers. While we wouldn’t classify The Crystal Press girls as football buffs, we will claim to know a thing or two about school spirit, especially when our respective teams are in question. That being said, we both adore our alma maters and will undoubtedly be talking crap to each other over a couple glasses of Veuve in the name of this statewide rivalry.
Aside from a Crystal Press and Virginia football rivalry, there is more than usual involved in this traditional football game this year. Today marks Frank Beamer’s last regular season football game of his whopping 30 year career at Virginia Tech. Frank has been with the Virginia Tech family since before I was born and I, along with many people, won’t recognize Virginia Tech without him. He isn’t just the face of the football team that the Hokies hold so dear, he is the face of the Virginia Tech community as a whole. Through thick, thin and absolutely heart wrenching times, Frank Beamer has been a rock for all of the Hokies across the nation. Join Reb + I and our rival alma maters as we celebrate Frank’s career in a battle for The Commonwealth Cup.
Go Hoos, go Hokies, and thanks for everything Beamer.
