Do you want to end up on a shirt? Because this is how you end up on a shirt.

It was very tempting to do some kind of take on the Steve from Blue's Clues video this week, but it was so heartfelt and genuine I left it alone.

You know what else is heartfelt and genuine? Our staff's collective enjoyment at seeing North Carolina fans embarrass themselves. Thankfully, I'll never know what it's like to think a loud stadium is "obnoxious" and "not football". The same can't be said for everyone.

On this weeks show we talk briefly about the Hokies and Middle Tennessee, the other intriguing games in the ACC this week, plus Carolina Karen who made waves with an ill-advised tweet which found its way into our merch store.

Stay safe and enjoy another great weekend of football!


My Dad graduated from Tech in 1981 and I’ve been attending Virginia Tech sporting events since I first moved to Blacksburg in 1988. I myself graduated in 2008 with a Communication degree. During my time as a student I was the Sports Director for WUVT and helped establish and run Planet Blacksburg, an independent student-run news website. I’ve since written for numerous publications including SBNation, Inside The ACC, and Sports Illustrated's AllHokies. Currently, I host The Justin Cates Show in addition to other contributions here at Sons of Saturday and various other sites as the need arises. I now live in a fortified compound in upstate New York with my wife and numerous animals. The smell of popcorn makes me think of Cassell.
