Frank Beamer leads the Harlem Shake for his Virginia Tech players (Video)

Frank-Beamer-Harlem-ShakeBelieve me when I say that I want to ignore the Harlem Shake and just patiently what for it to fizzle out, but every time I tell myself I’m totally done with it someone like Frank Beamer comes along and starts cutting a rug.

Like many other collegiate teams across the nation, the Virginia Tech football team decided to get in on the Harlem Shake trend by making pretty much the same Harlem Shake video every other team has made. They did, however, add an X-factor in the form of Beamer showing us his 66-year-old dance moves like a straight up boss.

As much as I dislike the whole Harlem Shake phenomenon, I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t led to a few laughs. Whether it’s Beamer strutting his stuff or this clever mash-up from the hockey world, not all of these videos have been unbearable.

Frank Beamer Thinks He Was Spied On

Not while he was getting his dirty-dirty on or anything like that, but something much more serious. Eight months after the Chick-Fil-A Bowl (man, they make one hell of a chicken sandwich by the way), the Sultan of Special Teams suspects there was some foul play going on with the Georgia coaching staff.

“We practiced out at Georgia Tech and we let all kinds of people through there … people we didn’t really know,” Beamer told The Roanoke Times. “And I thought it hurt us in the bowl game. I’m not blaming anybody … but I thought Georgia knew exactly what we were doing in several situations.”

Nothing like manning up to a bowl game loss by suspecting the other team of spying eight months after the fact. Man, what I wouldn’t give to see these two teams meet up again this year. Maybe Beamer should start closing his practices to the public so that he can’t use that as an excuse in the future.
