Virgina Tech + Metallica = ‘These People Are Losing Their Mind’

I’ve never been much of a Virginia Tech fan, though I do know many fine people who went there. And I’ve never been much of a Metallica fan either, though I do cherish the “One” cassingle I bought forever ago.

Still, Lane Stadium’s use of “Enter Sandman” as the Hokies’ intro music is inspired, and the crowd’s response to it here, at the end of VT’s crazy win over Miami, is “just spectacular.” Not even Mike Patrick could ruin it.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Hate me some VT but scenes like this were what I needed in making my college decision instead of stupid US News rankings. Remember going to a South Carolina-Tennessee game my freshman year and instantly regretting my decision.

    Also watch the kid w/ the backpack get pwned by the VA trooper when he gets too close to Beamer around the 1:45 mark.

    Hate the hokies but got to respect a scene like that. Someday Bryd Stadium, someday.

    Maybe if we stop playing “the final countdown” by Europe before the team comes out of the tunnel we could..

    That was so amazing to watch. It reminded me of RFK in the 80’s.

    If you haven’t seen this, here’s a seismogram from the Miami-VT game. I think the big red blob is everyone jumping up and down

    Or more likely the blue blob, “Final Minute.” I wish this had the end of the game, too
