A View from the Sideline: Hokies vs. Wahoos Pt. 1

Well, here are some prime shots from the first half. It was a cold day, and the camera was giving me a fit along with the battery draining before the first half was over. That’s rare. You can be the judge of some of the results. GO HOKIES!!!!

It was cold, even in the setting sunshine of the early first half. The temperatures were hovering at just about 40 in the sun, but the shade was causing a nearly 10 degree drop. It was numbing by the end of the first half, as the early night fall of the middle of autumn crept in.

88 minutes and 9 seconds until kickoff.

That was the excitement of the first half. The 2nd half was just sort of weird and distressing, followed by nuts. We’ll get to those pictures soon.

GO HOKIES!!!
