On November 27, 2004 Virginia Tech beat Virginia 24-10 to win back the Commonwealth Cup. Virginia hasn't possessed the cup since. Counting the day Tech won it back, today is the 3,000th day of continuos possession for the Hokies. If you're a purist, and want to count full days, or time since the final whistle, then you're celebrating 3,000 at some point tomorrow. Either way, it's been such a long time it took math to figure out. Or in other words...
Regardless, such an occasion calls for pictures.

Beamer was asked if he's ever consumed an adult beverage from the Commonwealth Cup. "I think Cody Grimm was the leader of that pack."— Andy Bitter (@AndyBitterVT) November 23, 2010
