Yep, Big VIc, as some called him. He was big. Always thought if he would have slimmed down a smidge, he would have been even deadlier.

Had a similar experience prior to the 15-13 game. Figured we were in trouble game wise so I got extremely intoxicated prior to game. I tailgate with others but was going to game with my mom. She found me nearly passed out in the grass lots where the baseball fields were. Got through ticket entry fine. As the game started I was jingling my keys (which were on a carabiner) for the opening kickoff. I pushed in on the carabiner and keys went a few rows in front of me. Got my keys back and that sobered me up pretty quick.My memories are hazy from that day. We started tailgating at 6am and I almost passed out and didn't actually go into the stadium. On the way to the ticket taker I vomited on the ground. Nasty, but they still let me in. I was so drunk I ended up in the wrong section, actually in the visiting fans section so I was surrounded by hawkeyes. I can't believe no one punched me. I was so obnoxious. I guess being 6'2 and about 250 at the time helped. I'm sure I was yelled at during the game but I don't remember it.
My most vivid memory of the actual game was the pick where Drew Taint knocked himself silly on the tackle. I was freaking out and all the hawks around me were pissed.
