Give the Gift of TechHoopscom!

You know that every time you read our site without paying it is technically stealing, right?  Just kidding.  But this Christmas, if you feel so inclined, we’d really appreciate it if you made a donation to TechHoops.com.  100% of your donation goes to our drinking problems.  Seriously, though, I have a kid due at the end of February and we have no sponsors (makes us unbiased), so every bit helps… buy diapers (yes, the Weekend Warrior is all but dead).  We bring you the hard-hitting Hokies hoops headlines out of love of Virginia Tech and our hoops program (and hatred of ricky “program bomb” stokes).

Donating is easy: DONATE

If you donate $50, we’ll name a recap, or a Bear Fight victory (20+ points and two ‘bombs’), after you.

We also know times are tough.  If you cannot afford to donate right now, then just send our link (or a link to highlights or some article you enjoyed) to friends and family that may not know about our site.  That would be a big help to our site and its success, too.

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Niemo is a member of the VT Class of '98. While not a professional journalist by any stretch, Niemo analyzes and breaks down every minute of Hokie hoop action. He also researches topics of interest such as Hokie recruits, program revenue, statistical data on the team, previews VT opponents, and discusses his favorite bourbons/Scotches. 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.

      We could keep posting pics of me in a banana hammock until people donated enough to get me to stop. I like your thinking.

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 TechHoops.com 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 TechHoops.com Wild Hokie Club today!
