I began attending Tech games in 2004. I began attending every home game in 2006 and stopped when high school soccer took over my life in 2012 and college thereafter. I still manage to make it to a couple games every year, but I have missed some good ones that I otherwise wouldn't have if life hadn't gotten in the way.
Up until now, there were two gamedays I can remember that were perfect. The first one was in 2007 against Florida State. 3:30 kickoff, 4th quarter demolition, first win over FSU in a longtime, Tyrod's first great game, etc. Everything about it was so perfect.
The other one that comes to mind was the 2011 Miami game. There was never a dull moment in that one, and it ultimately ended with the greatest showing of Enter Sandman ever and a Hokie win over the hated Hurricanes. That one was also a 3:30 kickoff. I'm particularly biased to that time because you don't have to wake up too early to tailgate and can get back home at a decent hour.
You can add Saturday's game against UNC to this list. It had everything. It had the golden 3:30 kickoff. It had the longest game in ACC history. It had us beating one my favorite teams in the world to beat. It was QP's first great game of hopefully several more. I haven't seen that much energy in Lane Stadium in a long time. It was truly another perfect game.
2017 WVU would be there if it had been in Blacksburg. 2013 Marshall would be there had it not been for the rain. 2006 Clemson was very close, but getting home at 2 AM on a school night in the third grade isn't the greatest thing in the world. 2008 UVA was awesome, but it was freezing and kind of a boring game at 17-14 final. 2014 UVA was also awesome, but we were 5-6, and the athletic department couldn't even fake a sellout for that one.
What are some perfect gameday experiences for you guys?
