VT Stadium=UNBELIEVABLE BUT TRUE

[37]
Posted: Oct 1, 2017 6:37 AM
 

So I go into hokie stadium last night and proceed to the concession stand to buy a coke before heading to my seat. The nice young lady hands me my drink and says "that will be 3.50." So I hand her 2 properly paw stamped 2$ dollar bills. She says she cannot accept 2$ bills.
I said WHAT?
She said we cant take those
I said this is American currency!
She says we have been told not accept 2$ bills tonight
I said you have to be joking, right?
Some guy behind her steps in {I guess her supervisor} and says that they will not accept aaaaaaaaaaaany 2$ bills, especially ones with orange paws on them.

So I say ok, whatever, and hand her 4 1$s.
She hands me a Kennedy half dollar coin for change.
I say I cant accept those tonight.
She gave me 2 quarters

I went to my seat, enjoyed my coke, and watched our TIGERS KICK THEIR ASS!!!!

Strange but true

Go Tigers!

(not that there's anything wrong with that noble profession) and the 2 dollar bills remind him he's a fatherless #######

You should have said "Great!", then put your money back in your pocket and take the coke.

Gonna be honest, they treated me very nice in my seats. But, it was not loud at all. I wasn't impressed..then they took out their keys on 3rd down. What a bunch of weirdos.




They don't come close to FSU or Clem in terms of how loud it can get.

Lane Stadium is a s**thole ... seat spaces are very narrow; you can barely get your feet between seat rows; you have to practically stand up on the bleacher to let someone in/out; and three people in the concession line essentially block the entire rampart. And I never could figure out the key thing ... or Sandman.

Yeah, it's not like Jimmy Keys was pitching or something.

In my seat most around me were fine, no problem during the game. But I did have 3 people in hokie gear say "go gamecocks " to me. That was very weird. I just laughed at them.
And then there was the paper airplanes. ??????? I have been to countless away games. Last night was kinda surreal.

Go Tigers

And they have such a rep for being an intimidating environment. I dont see it. the only thing more overrated than vpi is jimbo fishers coaching ability.

Go Tigers


Wait, so Jimbo

can't really coach and depends on having 5-star talent all over the place?

Naaah ;)


Totally disagree

I thought it was louder than all the FSU games I've been to for the first few minutes. It was headache loud that first drive. Had we not got off to a lead and killed their will that would have been a #### of a crowd to have to deal with for 4 quarters. They were primed up as a fan base but ran into a buzz saw.

What @FSU games did you go to? That atmosphere is 1B in my rankings. Clemson being 1A.

These were our seats in the second quarter. Nobody around us.

That's incredible and I not sure it was even legal to refuse Payment! You should have taken a few sips and handed the Coke back to her, but is not the kind of fans we are. That's really disappointing that a University would be that petty. Then they stick our band in the nose bleed section. To me it has a lot to do with safety issues. Can you imagine a band member trying to carry a big heavy instrument up those steep steps.

IMO the placement of our band may have had some affect on our players just as the Orange pants did against a heavily favored coot team in 1980!

I guess it's true. VPI fans can't read

where it says "for all debts, public and private."

That's against the law, a business can not refuse legal tender.

A lawyer I am not. Just glad I had other denominations. My main motivation was to get to my seat before kickoff, but it did #### me off.

The Stupidvisor that it is against Federal Law to refuse U.S. currency for payment of debts...there is no law but I doubt he would have known that since most folks in Va. can't read .

Just look'm in the eye and tell'm. "You have such a cute, little stadium, and a nice little team that tries so hard, bless their hearts." and walk off.


That is Dumb....

Take a sip of it...then tell 'em that's all you carry.***
