The game is more than thirty days away, and now methods of sandwich transport have entered the fray. Virginia Tech's #LPD or "Lunch Pail Defense" container has apparently been throwing shade at the Buckeyes 80's style lunchbox. That is pretty common. I had a Knight Rider lunchbox that got in an all out gang war against my best friend's A-Team lunchbox. Many thermoses were lost, and at the end of the day my mom's pb&j paid the ultimate price. I can't open a can of Jif to this day without getting misty eyed over my homies. In a game that needs no more hype, Tech football has started an actual battle on who has the coolest lunchbox. I seriously have not made this up.
Ok, @CollegeGameDay we need your help. Can America tell us who has the best lunchbox? #LunchPailD pic.twitter.com/7v2If4yNb4— VT Football (@VT_Football) August 8, 2015
Not only is the official Tech football folks instigating this battle, they've drug the poor innocent folks at College Gameday into the mix. At first glance I thought it was an interesting side note. Here we are day 2 in camp and I guess the most interesting story out of Blacksburg is how we can win at a lunchbox battle. Again, I'm not making any of this up. The scary part is that now it has gotten wheels. I can't wait for the day when I get the crowning achievement in my journalism career notification: "Tech_Lunchpail has followed you".
Hopefully @MsPotts_ESPN & @MikeHumesESPN can help this debate that is gripping a nation! #LunchPailD https://t.co/chxgQqvJsC— Pete Moris (@PeteMoris) August 8, 2015
Maybe I'm just being a bitter old man, but jeez. I guess we should just enjoy all the interplay and it will help us pass the time until the kickoff. If anybody needs me I will be at the flea market looking for that ultimate collector's item: The Furman lunchbox (complete with thermos).
