You’ve all been keeping track on your Homecoming bingo cards, right?
What’s with those blank stares—are you joking? You didn’t do Homecoming bingo? Oh boy. Well, let me explain the rules so you can make your bingo card real quick and play. Make a kind of standard bingo card. Then put all of the Homecoming events on it, and mark off the ones you went to. If you get a bingo, then you win a prize! Ready to go? Bueno!
Let’s start with the epic paint war that happened on the fields by the Institute of Religion. People may have started out in white clothes, but that all soon changed with a few flicks of the wrist. No, it wasn’t magic. Weren’t you paying attention? It was with paint. Paint transformed the pearly whiteness of their clothes.
Friday night after the Homecoming Concert—which we’ll get to later—there was an alumni bonfire with all of the bonfire goodness you could expect from a bonfire, with the added bonus of mingling with your Southern Virginia alumni. Delicious. (Was that the right word to use? I mean, s’mores were most definitely involved so I would assume that was a good word choice.)
Then there were Saturday’s soccer games and other activities at The Fields. The women’s and men’s soccer teams each played a game, and the members of the women’s soccer team won their game—making that their team’s third consecutive win. Our soccer teams are fantastic, and soccer is my favorite sport out there anyway. Next to curling. We need a curling team.
Have you gotten a bingo yet? Well, if not, there’s still more events to go over. Stay tuned!
