Go West Young Man

The show has been a little sporadic as of late. As Jeff Goldblum might say, "life, uh, gets in the way."

This week however we've got something before the Cates show literally hits the road. My wife and I are traveling to Wyoming to visit my sister-in-law and her husband. After I performed the ceremony to marry them this summer we shipped them out there. They are now young frontier children making their way against the harsh realities of what I imagine are problems like this one:
Sure that's Canada, but can you honestly tell the difference? No reader, you cannot.

Anyway, I'll be out there next week to assess the situation on the ground so I may file some harried cell phone videos in between digesting box scores and fending off wildlife.

Until then enjoy the Hokies and Eagles Friday night and keep an eye out for my column after the game.

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.
