New Year’s + Miami + Virginia Tech = Happy 2011

Live shot along one of Florida's many beaches on Jan. 2, 2011

As you can tell just from the title, I’m talking about a triple threat here. 

 First of all, Happy New Year!  There’s something about a New Year that renews us all don’t you think?  This year, I spent New Year’s Day in Miami (catching an EARLY flight). 
I had a great time covering the Orange Bowl with Travis Wells and Chris Miles.  I’ve never really aspired to go to a college bowl game – but I jumped at the chance.  It’s quite impressive in so many ways aside from the actual game itself. 

Say hello to Betty & Lindsey Floyd! A few of the wonderful Hokie fans I got to meet

The tailgating (and VT fans go hard), the media-events, the quick tv deadlines it makes for a RUSH!  One of the best parts of being in Florida was the weather.  I think it averaged 73 degrees?  It was refreshing especially after Virginia’s bitter cold winter.  How many weeks until summer again?
