Getting my keys ready for this season. Let's Go Hokies!!

If you feel the leather in your hand let it rip.

About 5 years ago I bought a couple 50 packs of key blanks and a 10 pack of those wire keychains and made Key Play noisemakers for everyone we go to games with. Surprisingly inexpensive (total cost was maybe $40), so maybe $4 a keychain.

I put my TKPC bottle opener on mine and attach it to my belt with a carabiner during games. Works very well.

This is my school
This is home

Genius. I typically don't have my keys with me when I'm in Blacksburg and I have forgotten to add them to my tailgate checklist on more than one occasion.

If you feel the leather in your hand let it rip.

Smart, I launched my keys halfway down the north endzone when I was student because the key ring broke

Don't spend money on blank keys. Heavener Hardware will give you a whole box of miscut keys for FREE.

If you play it, they will win.

This!!!! I did buy a VT blank key for the end and I have a Keychain that plays tech triumph on mine. The VT is coated and doesn't make noise so I hold it with the Keychain and let the other keys jingle!

I have not added the TKP bottle opener too it, but I do have a bottle opener on it.

This is genius. We've embraced as much of a key-free existence as we can, and when we're in Blacksburg with the Wrangler, it's okay because that has a key start, but if we're in my car, that's just a fob and remote start, not to mention that I am not to be trusted with the only keys to our vehicle when I've been tailgating. We also have keyless entry at the house, so my key inventory is limited. But this....this is is a risk-free solution to the problem. Thank you, AssPocket!

No prob. Sounds like y'all need to do something like this.

...or befriend a janitor.

If you play it, they will win.

Just an FYI, Heavener is gone from that location as of Oct 1. They're moving into south main. I think it's a different name too? Another hardware store is taking over the Heavener spot.

You know, with as much as things have changed in Blacksburg in the last few years, I thought to myself as I hit post, "Hell, is Heavener even there anymore?"

Thanks for the update.

I don't know if other places toss them as they miscut them or what. I just know that Heavener used to keep a box of them. If memory serves, I think it was specifically for fans asking for keys. That's how you serve the hometown peeps!

I'm sure other places would save them for you if you asked.

If you play it, they will win.

We're currently undefeated in the Pry Era!

which means zero post-game thread meltdowns on TKP! hahaha

"Take care of the little things and the big things will come."

Ah, the pre-season. The calm before the storm.

I, for one, appreciate everyone who makes the post game meltdown threads. It's tough to meltdown in the game threads as people keep killing the vibe with thoughtful commentary and positive feelings!

It's like the difference between a submarine and any other ship.

It's whether or not you can resurface.

I could do that, but I don't think my health insurance would cover the results...

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

Speaking of the upcoming season, does anyone know when tickets will be sent? Haven't bought tickets since 2018 and now they are all mobile delivery so not sure how this process works.

Mine arrived in the app about a week or so ago

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Haven't received mine yet so I called the ticket office.

I was told that tickets should be delivered by the end of next week. He said something about some tickets being sent out as a test but they can't be transferred yet. Not sure what that's all about.

My app is empty as well.

He's still around. Did this in March. Wrong sport, but enjoy.

Wow. Good times.

Talk about saving that tournament with one shot...

Fucking Clemson hoops. Fucking worst. Total dogshit for 100 years- unless they are playing VT in March. I hate that total bullshit almost as much as I hate UVA. The fucking worst.

Tell us how you really feel, Doug.

LOL. Seriously. If we lose to Duke, UNC, Louisville, Cuse, ND in hoops? Well hell, tip it up again and get better. That's life against legit hoops programs. Lose to a throw away annoying program at a football school with a low budget coach in important games in March? kill me. can't stand that effing program.

Let's get to work

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

I have no expectations related to wins and losses this season. I'm just looking forward to seeing football players doing football things for the first time in a while.

Is coronavirus over yet?

My expectations: Play a clean game against ODU. A clean game- no dumb fucking penalties. A backup QB that can call a play if needed. Defensive backs within the zip code of receivers. Play a clean game- all I ask. Do that, you beat those fucking minor league chumps. Then move on to better things. Get better every week. Play physical. Don't try to ice a college kicker that will never in a million fucking years hit a 54 yard outdoor FG. Baby steps.

I believe Pry can do this. I really, REALLY hope so.

Agree. I don't know if we will win, but i DO KNOW that ODU is not going to pass the ball down the field undefended all day like 7 on 7. I do know that.

Despite our roster not being a strong P5 roster yet, we still have to be more talented than ODU across the board. We have a staff that knows how to win. I think we destroy ODU.

We had NFL draft picks on the field when they kicked our asses all day the last time we played there.

We had a HS JV staff coaching them and drawing up the game plan then changing it Saturday morning.

Exactly. Good coaching hides flaws while bad coaching hides talent.
