The Weekend Warrior’s Farewell Tribute to DC-Area Hokie Games

05 March 2014

NO MORE NOVA? Last night was sad for me in many ways.  I’m happy to see maryland, possibly my most hated of all ACC schools due to their ignorant fans, leave the ACC.  But reality also set in that as a NOVA Hokie, after 20 years of having a DC-area league team, I no longer […]
