2018 Football Ticket Roll Call

Who all has gotten their tickets? Ours were just delivered and they are fancy. They are printed like a spiral bound magazine this year. Very visually impressive.

Some people have to work during the day and therefore aren't home to get them right now 😉

All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car.

Hit the pace car?

Hit the pace car!

What for?

Because you've hit every other goddamned thing out there, I want you to be perfect!

"work"

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They are paying me for it at the very least.

I just got mine. I love the bound book. Very cool packaging.

UPS says out for delivery. My kids are home with a sitter and I have instructed them do NOT open anything that has Dad's name on it!

You went a lot more tame than I would have for the company sending the second package. Either you're very mature and restrained or I'm a complete child.

I wanted it to be a real company and wasn't sure if "Dildos-R-Us" is a real thing and sure as hell wasn't going to google it to find out.

UPS comes early at our house. I was checking the front door every few minutes starting at 8:00... They came about 9:30. Having tickets in hand means that it is ALMOST FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!!!

Mine arrived, but I admit with company this weekend and work this morning, I haven't opened the container.

It's better than Christmas morning.

Got mine as well. Man, that's an impressive way to present. Very cool and much better than the sheets of tickets from years past. Marketing is outdoing themselves this year. Must be wanting us to show them the $$$$$.

I haven't even gotten the email with tracking information for mine yet 😒

Call the ticket office

One tip ... sign-up for UPS My Choice if you don't have it already - you'll get alerted anytime there is a UPS package coming your way (whether you were expecting them or not) and be able to track its status/scheduled delivery date. Can also reroute or have them held at a UPS location (which I like to take advantage of ... I'm the paranoid type that doesn't like thousands of dollars of tickets sitting on my porch all day when I'm not home.) Anyway, it's a pretty helpful service if you get packages a lot. Most times I get an alert from the UPS app that my tickets are enroute before I even get the email with the tracking number via the VTTO/ticket printer.

If you sign-up for USP My Choice and don't see anything, I'd definitely call the ticket office. Having your order # handy from your email confirmation might help.

nah its cool. I already picked yours up.

I have an uncle that went to NC State and has been a season ticket holder there for years. State has been doing the spiral bound magazine look for their season tickets for at least the last 3 seasons. I was actually wondering when we would see something similar for our Tech tickets.

I got the notification that they've been delivered but I'm still at work for 3 more hours. Just a reminder - it's a federal offense and a felony to open someone else's mailbox.

Think the felony is opening somebody else's mail, not mailbox. Otherwise those high school kids putting out flyers are going to do hard time.

Just got the call from Mrs. APFOW, tickets are at the house.

This sounds like a cover up for leg extortion.

Since we changed the delivery address I don't even have an estimated delivery date.

I got mine. They smell nice.

Just got home after working late and my wife had already opened mine. Spent the first few seconds just smelling, not gonna lie. Is that weird?

It is really really weird................. what did they smell like? Asking for a friend.

Did you have a rail first thing this morning?

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

No, that's later tonight. This morning I had to hike out of the wilderness first thing.

I'm pretty sure that's Vomit you are smelling then.

All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car.

I got mine, hopefully first of many years!

Received!

We put the K in Kwality

Got home after midnight from the Journey/Def Leppard concert (where they showed several scenes on the big screen of the Def Leppard guitarist from years past wearing a Virginia Tech shirt) to find ours waiting on the front porch. Vocal cords prepped for the season. Great Monday it was!

I've got to start studying the roster to match numbers to names. I hate trying to read nameplates.

So still no tickets.

You are not alone. I need to call the ticket office about mine.

did you move and forget to update your address with them, too?

My guess is that a person wearing a VT banana hammock, horse head mask, and VT heels stole them.

Anybody in here have any word on FSU tickets from the ticket office? Any ideas when we find out if we made the cut for tickets?

Did anyone else see the section about "what is a recruiting violation / what I can do / etc."? I think they missed 1 important item...

Should I tweet at recruits? NO! Hahaha

For all you season ticket holder experts: how do you get enough klout to get season tix located on the 50 yard line and lower rows. Is it a time requirement or moeny requirement or how is it done? Thanks!

Under this new system a bit of both. You get points for years of consecutive giving but the primary source of points is how much you give. This is the point system I found on HokieSports.

2 Points for every $100 cumulative giving to Virginia Tech Athletics $
5 Points per consecutive year of giving to the Hokie Scholarship Fund
3 Points per consecutive year of purchasing season tickets (football, men's basketball and women's basketball)
1 Point per purchased season ticket (football, men's basketball and women's basketball) with a maximum of 16 points accumulated per sport, per year
1 Point per neutral site or postseason event with ticket(s) purchased (football, men's basketball and women's basketball)
5 Points per year of membership in the Student Hokie Club
50 Points for being a former Virginia Tech letterwinner (one-time bonus)

I have no idea how many points are required for 50 yard line tickets that aren't nose bleeds. It will be a lot.

But that is the minimum required. If you give those amounts you are not guaranteed seats in that section.
That is the floor but the ceiling is going to be much higher.

Oh definitely. But I think that there were a lot of people who had 50 yd seats based on seniority only that downgraded their seats instead of increasing their donations. It would be interesting to see if they are sold out of those seats or not.

Yeah that's the minimum. The points come into play when it comes time to choose. If you give $800 your first year and there's 5,000 seats available there, if you are the 5,001st to select seats, you may very well be out of luck (if by some dumbass chance 5,000 people only bought one ticket each and all wanted to be in that section).

There is also fancier versions of the season tickets that you can wear on a lanyard!

Hello for the first time in 2018! Got ours a couple days ago! I really love how they were sent out this year. Excited for the season to get started! Go Hokies! (and whoever is playing Tennessee ;))

A Hokie living in Tennessee.

I have 3 favorite teams. VT, Kentucky, and whoever the hell is playing Tennessee.

Tennessee plays WVU first. I hope they play 96 overtimes and they both forfeit the rest of the season

I feed off of nightmares

That's the kind of game that you pull for the giant meteor... You can't with good conscience pull for either team, so you just hope that a giant meteor hits the middle of the field.

Tickets in hand!!! I read the whole book, then, read it again.. and then used it for a bedtime story for the kids. One of them goes to Clemson so some of the appreciation for it was lost.

Tickets were waiting for me when I got home yesterday. Can confirm: tickets smell. Also, I may have the book on display on a record holder in my living room. Some things look so great you just gotta show it off.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

You can confirm the tickets smell like what?

All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car.
