If you have read my blog for any length of time, you have probably deduced that I am a Virginia Tech alum. You have also probably learned that the Virginia Tech mascot is the Hokie Bird.
Let us focus on that second paragraph there, shall we. I will admit, the Hokie Bird they used on the finisher’s shirt was the “fit” Hokie Bird and he is a little weird looking. However, I do think that the regular Hokie Bird mascot is cute. But obviously I am biased. So I am bringing it to a vote! You have seen Holly’s opinion above and you know my opinion. I get the extra advantage of submitting the following Hokie Bird pictures, because it’s my blog.

Yes, we invited our school mascot to our wedding and yes, he was coo enough to accept.
I mean all of this lightheartedly and I am not asking folks to take sides (this is not me vs. Holly). But I am curious to see what people, especially those not affiliated with Virginia Tech, think of our mascot. Choose wisely.
