Hokies @ Miami: Pregame Thoughts

According to DeAngelo Hall, this Tech team is worth him talking shit to his new Redskins teammates. For the first time in the last three years, I'm actually proud that he was a Hokie. As much as I love Portis, Moss & Co. now, I sure as hell hated them when they were 'Canes. I hope his "boys" as he called them back him up tonight on National Television

This is a monster game for our young Hokies. Going to Miami is never easy, but as we've all read this entire week, the road team has won 3 of the last 4 matchups in this series. I believe that will continue tonight. I'm going to keep this short and sweet, but I believe that our offensive line SHOULD be able to overpower a stout Miami front seven, that's been good, but not great against the decent offenses they've faced this year. Last Thursday looked a lot like 2004, and I think this game will be along the lines of that '04 season finale in the O.B. Tech will get a big special teams play, give up a big running touchdown, but get just enough from the defense (i.e. timely turnover, sack or safety) to pull this one out. This game will look a lot better than the last time we travelled to Dolphin stadium.

My name is Mike and I reached out to you some time ago about the Samsung/NFL campaign I've been working on over the past few months. I wanted to reach out to you thanks you for posting information about the campaign and let you know that voting is now open and we have several Redskins fans in the mix. We need your help in getting the word out to other Redskins fans about the voting at and how they can help their fellow Redskins fan win the commercial spot.

Here are a few examples of the Washington Redskins fans that made it through to the voting stage:

* Washington Redskins fan and Montgomery resident Kevin Bittenbender tells the story of how he sees the NFL as the "common denominator." Bittenbender, who just returned from his second tour in Afghanistan, relates how he used the game of football to find common ground with groups of Afghan children.

* Keith and Sharon Turner tell their story of how superstition has ruled their home every Sunday for the past 23 years. Mr. Turner is not
to be bothered while watching his beloved Redskins, but his children and wife have figured out that's the perfect time to ask for money
because he can't say no

* Hogettes Howard Churchill and Big Mac tell their story of how the Hogettes all came together to cheer the Redskins on during the Super
Bowl vs. the Denver Broncos, leading the cheers and producing a tremendous "roar." They feel like they helped the Redskins win the

WHAT: Fans can vote for other Redskins fans videos on The winning story will be turned into Samsung's
"The NFL: That's How I See It" fan Super Ad commercial that will air during the Super Bowl XLIII pregame show on February 1 on NBC. More than 400 NFL fans shared their stories of pregame rituals, defining football moments and football routines that have been passed down for generations.

WHEN: Nov. 20 – Dec. 3, 2008
WHERE: Visit to vote. WHY: Samsung and the NFL are giving fans the opportunity to share
their passion and stories surrounding America's favorite sport as part of this year's "Super Ad: That's How I See It" campaign.

Please let me know if you can post any of this information and encourage your readers to come to the site and vote for their fellow
Redskins fans and help them win and become the Super Bowl 2009 commercial. Go Skins!
