When I was building my new patio a few years ago, I asked the contractor if he could use a few bricks of 'Hokie Stone' as a symbolic nature of my Virginia Tech fanhood.  He had no idea what I was talking about, but said if I could find it, he'd use it.  I was pretty surprise when after several hours of googling and other means of searching, I really couldn't find the stuff.

However, I've finally come accross someone selling Hokie Stone Want to Own a Piece of Hokie Stone?  Like the One in the Tunnel? (like the one the players touch coming out of the tunnel at Lane Stadium)  - on eBay.
