WVU football games may be one of the things that I miss the most while being in Hong Kong. However, this has not stopped us hardcore Maniacs from showing our spirit. During the WVU Homecoming game, Becca, another WVU student currently studying at Lingnan, and I decided to throw a WVU tailgate party to show our local friends at Lingnan just how much we loved our Mountaineers.
Since the game was in the afternoon, we decided to have an evening tailgate in Hong Kong and stream the game online. We got updates every so often and could see the field online. Now I don’t think our friends realized how much WVU students pride themselves on being a Mountaineer, so we showed them photos of the crowds, clips of past football games, and taught them a few of our famous cheers. It was nothing like a true WVU home football game, but it definitely…took us home to our country roads! Let’s Go Mountaineers!!
Some of the people that attended our WVU tailgate party…Becca and I definitely got them hooked up with some blue and gold gear!
