This week is an important kick off week – college football is back! Goodbye summer and hello fall. I’m always sad to see summer go, but it means that fall is upon us and football is finally here.
I’m excited for this long Labor Day weekend, but I kind of can’t wait for Monday night. Why? Because on Monday night the Hokies have their season opener at home against Ohio State!
There’s nothing like Lane Stadium under the lights, especially at a home opener. Last year Virginia Tech had a huge win over Ohio State. It was a very exciting game and I couldn’t believe we came out on top.
In fact, we were the only loss they had last year, as they went on to win the national championship.
Barry and I will not be going to the game, because I cannot find any tickets under $200 a piece. If this was a national championship game, I’d pay that, but not for this game. So we will be cheering from home as the boys of fall take to Worsham Field once again. It’s going to be a tough game, but I’m cautiously hopeful that we can pull off another huge win. It wouldn’t be the first time we had a miracle in Blacksburg.
What are your Labor Day weekend plans?
Who else is excited that football is back?
P.S. My running buddy, Kim, had her baby this past Monday! A little boy named Hunter! 🙂

I’m not a huge college football fan, but I love NFL games! Our fantasy football draft is this weekend, so I’m looking forward to watching games and cheering for my players!
Hope all goes well for your draft! I’ve never done fantasy football, but it sounds like a lot of fun.
You know I’m happy about this weekend! Is it too early to start jumping? Looking forward to our run together on Sunday!
Congrats to Kim if she’s reading! 🙂
I think it’s alright to start jumping! 🙂 See you Sunday! Save travels.
It’s game time… Everywhere!
Oh football, is that now? LOL! Glad you are able to enjoy that w/ Barry! I’m sure it’s fun when you both love it. You know you’re a fan when you call your favorite team “we”. 😀
Yes, football!! 🙂 I love rooting for my Hokies and will do so no matter how rough the season will get, but I also love any good/close game.
