Ask a Shutdown Fuller

Hello and

Since my job is shutdown, ask me your questions! Curious about a bowl opponent? (you shouldn't be, we play them all the time). Wondering about the bowl? (you shouldn't be, we were there like four years ago). Been thinking about where the new Spider-man movie ranks in the pantheon of Spider-man movies? Intrigued by the recent developments in our formation of a No Pirates Allowed club? LAY IT ON ME.

How badly are we gonna beat Cincinnati? 3 TD'S OR 4? And what's the NCAA gonna do with those 3 Clemson players?

"Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the mouth."

How big is the meltdown going to be in Charlottesville when VT beats them four times this hoops season? I'm expecting us to sweep them in regular season, kick them out of the ACC tourney, and kick them out of the NCAA tournament. Is there enough Zima in the world to cope with that?

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.

How are we going to beat them if the NCAA avoids having teams play an in conference opponent the first round?

Why would we necessarily be facing them in the first round?

There are plenty of combinations that could result in us playing them in the second round. It still counts if we are the team to knocks them out, right?

...the joke is that they will be a #1 seed again and lose in the first round

I guess I didn't look at it that way. I assumed two losses to VT and getting bounced from the ACC Tourney would preclude them being a one seed, but there are a lot of games and a lot of factors.

Yeah, the #1 seed part was probably an exaggeration.

If their only three losses are to VT, and the third is the ACC championship, it wouldn't be out of the question. #1 seeds lose in that round all the time. The question is what is Tech seeded.

Good point! A lot of us were wearing Bracket Blinders. If Tech isn't seeded 16 on the same quarter of the Bracket at some point there will be an opportunity for a showdown.

Spidey-verse is best spiderman movie, no questions needed.

Really??? That's saying something bc I thought Homecoming was a really good movie. Haven't seen Spidey verse yet so this is encouraging.

Spider-Man 2 would like a word.

I really didnt like it, I'm probably the only one.
Toby sucked as spidey. I like the first Andrew Garfield movie better.

Homecoming was great. Keaton was great.

The thing about spidey-verse, if never seen a movie look like it. The look might get old if tons of movies start doing it, but it looked fantastic. The whole movie worked, I didnt feel like there was any dragging in the plot (look I'll ng at you mary poppins). It all just worked.

In your ever so humble opinion, what percentage of federal employees are glad about the shutdown and see it as some extra vacation time?

Whatever. It was one bad year.

There's not going to work and then there's not getting paid. Sometimes it's just the latter...

If I recall, every time the government has shut down all government employees got back pay for the shutdown. As long as you have budgeted for it, then shouldn't be bad. The contractors are who gets really screwed, they dont get paid.

Only half of Netflix users, man.

I thought all the Fuller's were always shutdown, even though not all chose to play DB?

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

This is a good point. Fuller is synonymous with shut down. In fact if you look up the orgin of the name it says:
Fuller Name Meaning
English: occupational name for a dresser of cloth, Old English fullere (from Latin fullo, with the addition of the English agent suffix).

source: https://www.ancestry.com/name-origin?surname=fuller

So basically "FULLER" is basically "blanketing" or covering someone.

If you could be one of the other 4 fullers, which one would you be and why?

Cincinnati chili or the field?

The field.

For some reason there seems to be a lot of hate for Cincy style chili, but I am usually in Ohio once a year (staying with friends in Dayton for the Indy 500, we drive from there every year) and Skyline is a must stop each time for Chili Cheese Coneys and Cincy style chili. Personally, I'm a fan.

Also, when it Ohio I must eat breakfast at Bob Evans at least once.

Seriously your in Dayton and your stops are skyline and bob Evans!!!

Are wine tastings and lectures appropriate for celebrating football?

Is it appropriate to call what they do at loluva playing football?

There is nothing in the world like Thursday night in Blacksburg!

If you could catch one world record fish what species would it be? Wahoo is not an acceptable answer!

Monchong, and eat it.
Damn tasty.

Had to look this one up! Its a Pomfret. I had never heard that local name. They say its ugly but nothing is uglier than a monkfish!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

WKRP - Jennifer Marlowe or Bailey Quarters?

Bailey

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Which of the following two plays would work the best against Cincinnati in a third and short situation? An inverted veer shallow nose tackle option pass? Or a weak side RPO that actually stands for Red snapper / Pork belly Option?

Rank them from best to 4th best: North Carolina pulled pork, Memphis style pork ribs, Texas brisket, Kansas City burnt ends. Feel free to throw in a dark horse candidate.

Dude! Great question, tough call.
I'll just have to take them all!

Pain is Temporary, Chicks Dig Scars
Glory is Forever, Let's Go Hokies!!

1. NC BBQ (fight me)
2. Texas Brisket
3. Memphis Ribs
4. Nashville Hot Chicken

Nashville hot chicken is Number 1

You misspelled Memphis Ribs

30 years after starting grad school at Virginia Tech, I finally defended my dissertation and earned my PhD.
Don't give up on your dreams.

While Nashville Hot Chicken is better than KC burnt ends, it is not BBQ. If we open this up to every iconic food, I don't know if I would include any of the above. If we stick to BBQ, it is hard enough. Best I've ever had had would be Brisket, Ribs, Eastern pulled whole hog, burnt ends. But if we drop to second best of each, it would be Eastern, Memphis, Texas, KC. Betting MD Pit Beef would also beat KC, but have never had it. Had KC multiple times, several places, and never really cared for it.

Why did you create an AMA and then not answer a single question?

Will the government work again after shutting it down and turning it back on?

If you could take one backup from each playoff team, who would they be and do you think they would start for VT?

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

Yes, they would start

Hurts and best DL backup from clemson

I'd even take the best DL back up from Bama.

30 years after starting grad school at Virginia Tech, I finally defended my dissertation and earned my PhD.
Don't give up on your dreams.

We get to pick DL from ND and OU too, though we might not want to pick defensive players from OU.

I'd pick an OL from OU or if allowed the 2nd string WR who started last night (due to injury).
