HAPPY HOKIE. At least one Hokie was happy when football concluded this weekend.  DeAngelo Hall #23 of the Washington Redskins celebrates his touchdown during the NFL season opener against the Dallas Cowboys at FedExField on September 12, 2010 in Landover, Maryland.  The other Hokie on the Redskins roster is 6-3, 310 lbs offensive guard Will Montgomery.  (Photo by Larry French/Getty Images)
INSULT TO INJURY? As if Hokie Nation wasn’t out of sorts enough, look who reappeared on the national stage in Sunday’s Packers v. Eagles game. When starter Kevin Kolb got hurt, former Hokie Michael Vick replaced him for the remainder of the game against the Green Bay Packers at Lincoln Financial Field on September 12, 2010 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  To his credit, Vick passed for 174 yards and a touchdown and ran for another 103 yards.

SURFS WAY UP. Wave riders paddle atop a mountain of water in Tahiti, near the village of Teahupo'o on the country's main island.  The waves at Teahupo'o, which means "broken skulls" in Tahitian, are formed when huge deep-water ocean swells traveling along the South Pacific crash against a shallow coral reef that sits about a quarter-mile from the shore.
