just went to my sisters graduation from West Virginia University...and from all the speakers I've come back with the following basic points:
1. West Virginia jokes arent funny anymore
2. West Virginia football beat Virginia Tech twice in the last 4 years (they cant let it go. Who won the ACC this year...I wonder?)
3. The West Virginia economy is going to knock the socks off the rest of the country in the next 2 years.
4. Everybody that's anybody was raised in a small coal-mining town.
I'm not kidding. This is what we were told....many times....
