    How the heck is harlem better than Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital and most powerful city in the world? (according to the Wizards’ announcer)

  2. Dave Woods says:

    Where do you get this stuff? What does Biz Markie have to do with the Hokies? Its funny because its stupid. Pure inane jackass gold. Gold, Jerry, gold.

    I gotta go with Niemo on the DC vs Harlem tip. I’m givin that one to Sid. But hey its your world dog. Oh. Snap.

  3. Niemo says:

    Uh, Davey, Biz Markie has nothing to do with the Hokies. It is called “Celebrity Look-a-like Showdown”. Not “Guy for the other team that looks like a Hokie”. Biz Markie is a celebrity and therefore qualifies.

    Clearly we need to do a better job going over this stuff in our staff meetings.

  4. Wick says:

    I thought we fired Davey after he missed the uva game?

  5. Dave Woods says:

    This site would be nowhere without my dedicated hyphenating and insightful blogging!

  6. Rockfish40 says:

    I would have thought Ice Cube made the best celebrity matchup but I guess since we aren’t playing on Friday….

  7. Niemo says:

    Rockfish – To be fair, Biz Markie looks more like Sidney Lowe than Ice Cube does.

    Almost two years later, I am sitting here in my fabulous cubicle chuckling heartily with a tear in my eye. That is some funny stupid sh… stuff. The pictures alone are hilarious.

The Wild Hokie Club!

The Hokies experienced their worst season since the ricky "program bomb" stokes era. Sure, it would have been easy to quit on you, but did we quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO!


And we do it for free! But, just like NPR, we rely on the generosity of our loyal fans to help keep this humble Hokie website alive. That being said, see how you can help make it to 10 years!


Jon King, Ben Floyd and Dan Rickenbach all got in on the action and we encourage all TechHoops heads to do the same.


Any donation amount earns you a spot in our Wild Hokie Club. We'll even give you a shout out on Twitter and Facebook. We may even let you get armcurled by Niemo.


So join the Wild Hokie Club today!
