Time-lapsed Blogography Day: Twenty Years Ago Today

Twenty years ago today, on Saturday, November 20, 1999, I was in Philadelphia for the VT-Temple football game.

It was the beginning of our extravagant week-long Thanksgiving break and I had driven home the night before with Jen and her cat. Liz, Shac, Kelley, and Melody converged on my house Friday night so we could get an early start, and we ate pizza and watched Shawshank Redemption on VHS. In the morning, we woke up early and met Jason and Richard to caravan two cars up to Philly. The three in the back seat promptly fell asleep while Liz and I sang along to musicals in the front.

The game itself was pretty monotonous, with VT winning 62-7. Afterwards, Jason insisted that we stop at Hooter's before heading home and gave us pre-GPS directions to get there. Unfortunately, all the streets had changed names since his last visit, and we drove around the seedy parts of Philly for an hour and a half before finding it. The wings were just okay.

I managed to snatch a nap in the restaurant to prime the drive home, and we got back to Alexandria around 11:30 PM. The next day, I did 6 chapters of Physics to prepare for my final exam (Clearly, I had not kept up with the class as it progressed, trusting in my two years of high school physics to keep me afloat).
