We're Getting Ready Are YOU?

Coach London is working overtime on the Reach Out to Fans step of the UVa FAIL CHART. This short video was played across the Commonwealth after Monday's fantastic NCAA Basketball Championship. In it London asks the Hoos to, "please join us as we build the future of Virginia football."

A couple of times during the commercial a phone number was flashed on the screen.

Since I'm a huge sucker for numbers appearing on my television β€”I own a Slap Chop, several Twin Draft Guards, and Point n Paintβ€” I decided to give it a call.

*DIALING*

Thank you for calling the Virginia Athletic's Ticket Office, ..., please hold for a ticket office representative.

*HOLDING*

*RINGING*

Me: Hi, I'm calling because I saw the video after the basketball game last night. I want to learn more about how Coach London is going to turn around the football team. May I speak with him please?

Representative: Um uh, sir, let me give you the number of the football office.

Me: OK.

Rep: In area code 434 it's xxx-xxxx.

Me: Have a good day.

Rep: You-Hoo-too!

Thank you for calling the Virginia football office. For coaches press one.

*BEEP*

To speak with an assistant coach press one. To speak with the head coach press two.

*BEEP*

Secretary: Hello this is ****** ***** how may I help you?

Me: Hi, I'm calling because I saw the video after the basketball game last night. I want to learn more about how Coach London is going to turn around the football team. May I speak with him please?

Secretary: Sorry, but he's at practice. May I take a message?

Me: Maybe you can help me then? Before I buy my tickets I want to know if he's guaranteeing a bowl appearance...

Secretary: Um...

Me: ...win over Virginia Tech?

Secretary: I'm not sh...

Me: Hmm, well... A little reassurance would have been nice. I can't handle another 3-9 season.

Secretary: I know it's been tough to watch.

Me: Tough, no painful, last year I gave myself a minor hernia laughing so hard at you guys. Go Hokies!

Nice phone shenanigans. I'm in shock they would actually give out the football office's phone number.

BUMP

I got bored and found this. Since we're making fun of UVA so much this week, just thought I'd share.

Joe, what was this site like back then?

Was there supposed to be a link in this

No, this article was just posted quite some time ago.

Oh I get it now

Holy necro, Batman! Is that one of the first posts on this site?

Love how the MD highlights are 3:02, VMI is 1:36, Ball State 2:18, but his presser for GiT (discussing using a NERF football) is 7:28. There's more sizzle than steak! Awesome.

fun fact about the maryland highlight video (I got bored and watched that one) it includes several MD touchdowns, as well as UVa missing their field goal as time expired. At least theyre honest

turkey leg for watching it...
And that's phenomenally funny. Good stuff!!!
