You can’t quite replicate the full effect of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” in your fan cave when the Hokies football team runs into Lane Stadium, although there is seismograph evidence that you might just feel the rumble in your basement.
You can, however, collect lots of memorabilia, add a video screen or two along with a bar, and have an excellent seat for the game.
