If you've been in dire need for irreverent sports content about the Hokies along with the rest of the ACC, you're in luck! The Justin Cates Show is your portal to strange observations, rambling anecdotes, and cheeky editing.

There's a distinct possibility that I've already exceeded the reasonable use of my name for one article. My intentions aren't nearly that narcissistic. I aim to join a first rate team to cover college football and the Hokies first and foremost — with some observations on other schools tossed out as they become warranted.

The whole idea of this show is to have short episodes, no more than a few minutes long, touching on a few random topics each time.

We'll talk a whole lot about uniforms and helmets while attempting not to alienate potential viewers with over-generalizations like, "Why don't we return Florida to swampland?"

In this episode we put out a call to see some of your most unusual collectibles. What do you have prominently displayed or collecting dust on your shelves? Bonus for Hokies swag, but we'll stop and gawk at anything interesting on the roadside.

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.
