    Friday Morning, A Sea of Maroon and Orange

    I put on my Tech shirt for today and expected a few folks at work to be wearing VT colors when I arrived. I've seen over 20 co-workers and only one of them was not wearing a Tech Shirt or something in Tech colors. It made me choke up a bit when everyone around me was drressed in Hokie colors. Most drivers were wearing the colors on the way to work as well. I'm hoping today will make things at least a little better and help the tears dry a bit.

    I usually have to wear a boring park ranger uniform, but today I'm sporting my bright orange VT sweatshirt. Got a Tech football T underneath for when it gets warm.

    A few folks here are wearing the old maroon and orange effect this morning, someone brought some homemade ribbons for those who aren't. My wife stopped on her way home last night and bought me a new maroon shirt and nice orange tie that I'm wearing this morning. God Bless VA Tech. Our prayers are with You!

    My wife bought my shirt a couple of days ago when I mentioned todays plan. I have a VT denim shirt with a small logo, I wanted the colors to show. She came through for me.

    No uniforms today at my daughters' school -- just a request that everyone wear maroon and/or orange. I am wearing a maroon shirt with an orange t-shirt underneath. Although the organge t-shirt is not a VT one, it is close enough for me. It is the t-shirt from last year's Wilderness Road Ride in Southwestern Virginia (i.e., the Saturday prelude to the Mountains of Misery).
    I try to be perfectly civil, until someone really pisses me off.

    I am wearing an orange Polo today. I had no idea that today was the orange and maroon day. I just thought orange was a good color for today and I had to dig it out of my shirt pile to wear it. It's not like it was on top. Creepy, but cool.

    A-in-E....the old school colors, back in the very early 1900s, were black and grey. All uniforms for sports teams were horizontal stripes. Students complained about looking like prisoners. So the school got together and chose two colors that at that point were not anyone elses colors anywhere in the country. Technically the colors are Chicago Maroon and Burnt Orange. Oddly enough, Susquehanna University in PA have the same colors now.

    Useless, yet in my head anyway.
