From a TKP Sponsor: Big New Saturday at Homefield

Disclosure: This is a paid post sponsored by Homefield.

Welcome to Big New Saturday, Virginia Tech Hokies!

Check out our collection of iconic and original Virginia Tech apparel. We studied Virginia Tech's history and learned about its traditions to best celebrate the Hokies.

We're yelling, "BRUUUUUUUUUUUCE". Anticipating the next Skipper blast. And dream of Michael Vick not redshirting.

The t-shirts are a breathable, super soft triblend construction and the sweatshirts will keep you warm in Lane Stadium and at the tailgate.

We're proud to sponsor The Key Play and we're providing all TKP readers 20% off your purchase today only with the promo code THEKEYPLAY.

I'm gonna have to build a structure out of all my old Tech merchandise and I make a space for all the new Tech merchandise.

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

TKPC members, y'all are getting 10% off for at least a year.

Cool! Thanks, Joe!

Is the TKP store getting moved there eventually? I saw the good ole HOAT shirt on there.

Still working on that. Hope to have some more details (and new designs soon).

What's the code for TKP members or did I get an email that I missed?

It's an unwritten law that it's my lunch pail. I've issued the challenge. If someone outworks me, they can get it.

It's right above the TKPC membership progress bar.


Is this the brand they always advertised on PAPN? I remember checking that site and they didn't have VT apparel at the time. Either way, this is great news.

Yes it is. Godfrey just tweeted himself wearing a fighting gobbler.

Yep - the shirts are fantastic. I got some of the shirts to support the fullcast guys that laid off, and I fucking loved them.

Twitter me

I dig the throwback styles.

May need to make an investment here.

I think this is a challenge, y'all...

Sweeeet Caroline........

Gotta get me a fighting gobbler!

Though dont sleep on the Tulane ANGRY WAVE or Uconn Ennui Husky shirt!

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.

I'm so fucking mmmmpumped about this. I've tweeted/emailed the athletic department at least 3 times since Homefield started sponsoring PAPN/The Fullcast asking when they were going license Homefield.

I stopped listening to PAPN shortly after Bill C left for ESPN. I gave them until about a month into the season, but it seemed like half of each episode was dedicated to gambling talk, and that's not why I enjoy college football, so I dropped it.

Did it eventually get better by the end of last season?

Yea they found their grove. It wasn't the same show, but it was still a good listen. Bud Elliott left maybe half way through, and the gambling talk ended, and Godfrey/Richard developed a nice repport. It's ashame, PAPN would be thriving in the current environment.

I like the shirts, but I'm gonna need a Wisconsin Small, which I don't see anything larger than XXL (I have a large neck).

Good stuff

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

These look pretty great. Gonna make a move, but first:

Anyone have any color re: fit? Run big, run small? Bar1990, any thoughts? I ask bc I am often shocked at what different companies consider "large" and "extra large". I'm 6'3", 235.

And before you guys ask: yes, I have remaining eligibility

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

I am also curious about fit if anyone has experience with this brand. I'm 6'3" 185, so should I buy a medium or large?

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

The funny thing is I spent the first few years out of college sitting in a cubicle gaining weight up to 230, and then two years ago decided to get disciplined and lose 45 lbs. feelsgoodman

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

The t-shirts have an athletic fit; wider shoulders, but taper in around the stomach. They do not shrink at all in the wash. I have never (until now) ordered one of the sweatshirts, but so I tweeted them asking about the fit - they said it fits 'more true and less fitted.'

Honestly, just tweet them. They're super responsive.

Cheers, bar

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

I bought 2

Bought myself a Fightin' Gobblers hoodie and my converted Hokie girlfriend a TV hoodie. Very excited, especially after getting my Shutdown Fullcast t-shirt in May and it was super comfy.

Hope Homefield is reading this, I've been waiting for Homefield Hokie gear for at least a year

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

Pretty cool the Horse on a Treadmill shirt has TKP's website printed on it

It's TKP's design. They licensed it from TKP.

And they're printing it on their t-shirts/fabric?

Twitter me

Indeed they are.

Has everyone that ordered Saturday got their shipping notifications? I haven't seen mine yet, just curious...

Virginia Tech Class of 2013
Mining and Minerals Engineering

Sailing the Eastern Seas....on a ship filled with sand....

I have not

โ€œI like the donuts.โ€ -Bud Foster

Same. Seems like they saw a pretty big surge in orders on Saturday so it may take a bit longer than normal.

Still waiting here also. Order status still just showing as "Your order is confirmed" on the website. Their FAQ says:

When Will My Order Ship?
You should expect your order to ship within 1-5 business days. We print most of our orders on demand. Once it is printed, it will be sent out. Please do not request it be sent earlier; it will be sent out once it is made.

Just got my shipping notification in the last hour. If you haven't received your's and ordered on 8/15 I'd expect it soon.

I also just got mine.

It's Time to go to Work

I got my notification today!

I'm tempted to buy that crewneck but I am between sizes and it usually varies a lot depending on the type and brand of the shirt. No clue how Homefield stuff usually fits.

I asked about this last week for myself and I was told the sweatshirts run more true to size than their tee shirts.

Decided to send it.

I dunno which username is Anthony Scafone, but Homefield sent me your order, and I think you might have gotten mine.

My Homefield order came in over the weekend. For anyone wondering about the sweatshirt size - it definitely fits like a normal sweatshirt; a little baggy, but in a good way.

Also, for those that listen to the Fullcast, TKP got a quick shout out on the latest episode during some talk about the horse on treadmill shirt.

This is really really cool, if anyone has read his books, eye opening, Hold UP, is Homer Hickam on TKP??
