There's going to be only one link and one song heading into this weekend. The past week has been a tough one for everyone. I can't even imagine the pain that the direct Virginia Tech community has endured, and is still going through. I just want the student body to know that you have been not only strong and courageous, but classy as well.
I fully respect your stance on not talking to the media, and agree that the vultures have once again gotten out of hand. Please stay strong and my/our thoughts are with you.
The one link for the end of the week is to the Foundation for Roanoke which has setup a fund to take care of funeral and medical expenses. If you are able send in a little bit of cash over the weekend please do so.
The song is Hokie Triumph. Since today is National Hokie Day I found it only fitting to display the colors (idea borrowed from Fanhouse) on the site to show my, and the entire Awful Announcing Community's support.
Techmen, we're Techmen, with spirit true and faithful,Have the best weekend you can,
Backing up our teams with hopes undying;
Techmen, Oh, Techmen, we're out to win today,
Showing pep and life with which we're trying;
V.P., old V.P., you know our hearts are with you
In our luck which never seems to die;
Win or lose, we'll greet you with a glad returning,
You're the pride of V.P.I.
Just watch our men so big and active
Support the Orange and Maroon. Let's go Techs.
We know our ends and backs are stronger,
With winning hopes, we fear defeat no longer.
To see our team plow through the line, boys.
Determined now to win or die:
So give a Hokie, Hokie, Hokie, Hi,
Rae, Ri, old V.P.I.
