Usually the Hokie Celebration is the biggest TechHoops.com event of the year. I call it “Sweeps Week” since it has meant so much to us. It was at the 22nd Hokie Celebration where I first arm curled a Virginia Tech basketball player. 16 Hokies later (including 9 on the current squad), we had a tradition. But with the water main break on Saturday thanks to a beer truck driver (yes, a beer truck driver caused the issue), the postgame event with the players was cancelled and thousands (well, maybe dozens) of our loyal readers will have to survive without arm curls this year. In a striking bit of arm curl irony, Greivis Vasquez, whom I arm curled back in 2007, scored 41 points in the game. Dagger.
Paul Debnam said a month ago I wasn’t going to arm curl him, and dang it if he wasn’t right despite my confidence. I wonder if he had something to do with that water main break? Hmm.
The highlight of the night ended up being me drinking a 12 oz bottle of salad dressing. Yep, I miss the arm curls, too. Check out the photos from the event and the game anyway… please!
