Georgia Tech vs. Virginia Tech (Sept 3, 2012)
VT lightning strike
Twelve years later, Steve and I decided to head back up to Blacksburg to finish what we started. We took the Bud bus for a quick trip up and back to watch our beloved team.
The crew- Nick, Steve, me, Jeff, Whitney, Hugh, Matt
Whitney and me- reliving our cheerleading glory days!
Here is some video from the beginning of the game:
All I can say is I wish it had ended differently…It was such an incredible game. GT scored a touchdown to go up 17-14 with 44 seconds to go. Unfortunately, that proved to be too much time left on the clock…VT gained enough yards to kick a field goal to tie it up 17-17 as time ran out, and the Jackets lost in overtime 20-17. It was heartbreaking.
But…we had a great time and I was thrilled to finally see a game up there. We will be cheering on the Jackets (and hoping to put some W’s on the board) the rest of the season!
