Think of this thread as a digital meet and greet, a way we can get to know each other a little better before the season starts.
I'll lead things off. I'm not from Virginia, and before I came to Tech I had no prior attachment to The Commonwealth. An outsider at the time, I was a fan of the Vick led teams, but they didn't factor into my college decision—the best decision I ever made. Tech was far enough from home where my parents couldn't pop in, but I'd still make it home for the holidays. A top-notch CS program, and the backdrop of Blacksburg sealed the deal. So, I guess I've been a Hokie since my acceptance letter in 2001. If it wasn't for the magical run in '04, I'd be bitter as hell I missed the national championship chase, as well as the ACC domination that bookended my college career.
In no particular order, I enjoy: my wife, bourbon, GIFs, the Giants beating the Patriots, #AppleSwag, and golf.
I'm looking forward to a great season!
