Got a phone? You're in luck.
Been a while since the last update - The day the 2013 football schedule was released. Plenty has happened since then, including the Spring Game in Blacksburg. Sure, it was eventful. But did you expect the defense to lay down and let the limited offense run all over the field? Of course not. It's still Virginia Tech football.
The weekend before the Spring Game, Coach Beamer drove the pace car in Martinsville before the Cup race. I had to get the pic with him before he set off. He looked like he was having fun. Thumbs up!
Those of you that know me know how much of a uniform guy I am. Some things are good and some things you just hope not to see again. The latest installment is the orange camo helmet to be worn this season. Personally, the digital camo is a step up from last year's helmets. The only camo of that style is worn by hunters and not the military.
This year's helmet has some strong points. Orange seems to be an underutilized color at times, but the thin VT outline and the white facemask kind of clash a bit. The VT logo is noticeable close up, but maybe it could be filled in with maroon. Also, the white facemask screams a little too much and takes away from the camo itself. A maroon or even a black facemask would settle things down a little bit. Roll over the image below and you'll see what I mean.
Sure, it's a minor tweak. But sometimes minor tweaks can make a big impact.
Changing gears a bit. Ever since I started this website 7 years ago, many people asked if I would make some backgrounds for phones. They're nothing special, but here they are.
As for the regular desktops, here's the latest version. The UNC helmet has been updated.
I'm not sure when the next site update will be, but you can always follow me on Twitter. I'll be somewhere across this great land.
