    I have the acc network but I missed it. Will have to catch it another time unless I find another way to watch it.

    I enjoyed it. Roddy Jones, Wes Durham, and Joe Hamilton were in it.

    The Wreck and the Mini 500 were big parts of it.

    On again at midnight for the slackers (like me) who didn't see the thread until too late.

    I enjoyed it and the FSU one that followed. But you'd think that somehow we'd have The Ramblin Wreck from Georgia Tech music included somehow.

    And when did they start calling the Wrecks in the Wreck Parade....Contraptions? They used to have to have power (to get them off the road), is it now a bunch of wooden things. Has there been a movement to get away from powered vehicles?

    I haven't attended the Wreck Parade since I was a kid decades ago, but I thought they were always contraptions.

    Took my son to the parade back in 2010. Last one I attended.

    I’ll be honest. As a sidewalk fan, I was hoping for more talk or highlight of sports traditions.

    - Fight song
    - How school colors chosen
    - Techs/Golden Tornados/Jackets name evolution
    - Budweiser song
    - Heisman/Dodd/Broyles awards and their connection
    - History of The Flats/Grant Field
    - Thrillerdome

    But that’s just cause the on campus traditions don’t hit home for me.

    Also, they obviously filmed last year. CGC should have Executive Producer rights for the next one.
