In addition to his passion for Hokie hoops, Niemo has attended 126 straight VT football home games (every game since '94), eclipsing the 100 mark in September of '09 and recently attended his 20th consecutive VT/uva game. During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.

    Nice highlights! Thanks for taking the time to put them together for those of us who couldn’t watch the game. It was very encouraging to see the guys passing the ball so well yesterday. Hope it continues.

  2. Martin says:

    Awesome highlights as usual Niemo. Can I ask why it’s always “throw out the records”? Just jokin on announcers? Or is it cause we aren’t in ACC play yet?

    • Niemo says:

      Throw out the records has been a joke between my buddies and me for years because announcers always say it when the game is a bad match-up. It is like they think that will peak your interest… “duke versus east popcorn state? Ugh, this game is gonna stink… No, wait, they are throwing out the records! Now it is an even battle! Now I’ll watch!” I’ll often say to a buddy before a MAC or Sun Belt Tuesday night football game, “Have you thrown out the records yet???” I’ll keep building on this joke as the season goes on, if for no other reason than it makes me laugh.

    Great highlights! Thanks Niemo. You also hear “throw out the records” in football rivalries. And you’ll notice they never have any back up support to show that records aren’t an accurate indicator of who whill win. I haven’t done a detailed analysis but I believe you would find that the vast majority of the time the favored team wins as is the case with any matchup. That statement is ludicrous. Funny!

    Ah, Ok. That’s what I was thinking.. Good stuff
