08 vs. u(sic)ga. Was in a heavy dwag sidewalk alum section. Never been that elated while still scared for my well-being in my life.
09 vs. FSU. Best day ever.
09 ACCCG. One of the great road trips of my life.
Clemson 2011 - my freshman year, was in the band and I could tell before the game even started we were going to win.
Wake 2009 - got tickets for my birthday, watched Nesbitt put the team on his back in gold unis
Sun Bowl 2012 - awesome having the entire city of El paso rooting for us!
To a certain extent, yes. Getting married and having kids will do that to you but my passion for Tech football has never waned I did managed to find a great lady who, if doesn't quite understands my passion, is very tolerant of it!
Btw, my best friend was at the Ur-game of modern Tech football: Bama in 1961. He said the level of rage was beyond anything he had ever seen. The whole crowd was on their feet for the entire game. The Bama players had to wear their helmets to avoid being beaned by Coke bottle from the stands.
Good thing, say I. Laws, I hate those people with a vengeance.
91 Citrus Bowl (also made it to my 1st VPI game that year..cold n windy)
2008 UGA...(this one honestly is my favorite all time game)
98 UGA...thank you George...kicking on 3rd was BRILLIANT. To Hell With Georgia!!!
I can't think of the best but the one that comes to my mind as the most fun i have had in a while was this past years UNC Game. We were there through out the whole rain and in the third quarter the bottom dropped out. I have never been so wet. I had to dump my shoes out twice because they were full of water! One of the most fun games i can remember going to in a long time!
1981 @ Alabama - in Birmingham - Almost got arrested after the game for going on the field
1998 Virginia - My first game back at Tech after graduating.......down 21 late in the 3rd, Joe Hamilton leads the comeback for the win.
2007 @ND - Getting to watch Tech crush ND on their home field was sweet.
The Alabama game I was with about eight friends.....we got tickets through the AA.....for whatever reason, we were in the first row behind the Tech bench (almost all other Tech fans were in the endzone) We could not see a thing over the Tech players so we stood. The bama fans behind us complained to the police, who came over, checked our tickets as said since we were in our seats they could do knowing. Dean Dull happened to be nearby....he knew all of us (he was a big theater supporter) saw the police and decided to side at the end of our row to keep an eye on things. I was on the far end from him so all the booze we had brought got passed down to me to as"bartender" The rest of the game it was one for them, one for me and one for my GF........you can guess how that ended up. (Which is why we ended up completely wasted on the field after the game) The guy sitting right next to DD was completely sober.....and the one that drove us all home. The thing I remember most about the game was the silence in the stadium after Tech went ahead in the last minutes of the game.
