  • Remember Sox? This was his reaction when we told him that there are lots of Hokies who still don't have their VT socks yet. πŸ€”

    Sox isn't sure why though because all he had to do was give $25 to support student scholarships and as a thank you, he got these limited edition socks. 🧦 πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

    Sure, Sox thought about using that money on a new bone, but that wouldn't help Hokies...and his feet wouldn't look this good. 🀯

    Get your matching Sox socks before the end of the month. πŸ‘‰http://bit.ly/VTSocksFB
