Blacksburg, VA(WFXR) – Virginia Tech beat writer Andy Bitter put his writing skills to the test by writing a book about Virginia Tech football. The book is called “100 Things Virginia Tech Fans Should Know And Do Before They Die”. Triumph Publishing asked Bitter to write the book. It took Bitter nearly a year to write the book. The book was released Tuesday. Bitter has covered the Hokies since 2011, previously for the Virginian-Pilot and Roanoke Times, and has written about college football for twenty years. Most Virginia Tech fans have taken in a game at Lane Stadium, can tell you all about the 2000 BCS title game, and remember all their favorite wins over the Wahoos. But only real fans know how the “Enter Sandman” tradition started, know what Bill Dooley said to Bruce Smith to make him a Hokie, or can break down what “Beamerball” means.
Featuring traditions, records, and lore, this lively, detailed book explores the personalities, events, and facts every Virginia Tech fan should know. Whether you’re a fan from the early days of Frank Beamer or a more recent supporter, these are the 100 things all fans need to know and do in their lifetime. Beat reporter Andy Bitter has collected every essential piece of Hokies knowledge and trivia, as well as must-do activities, and ranks them all from 1 to 100, providing an entertaining and easy-to-follow checklist as you progress on your way to fan superstardom.
