Travelocity Gnome visits UVA for ESPN GameDay

I can't believe in his first attempt, Gnome got Ticket No. 1 at Bodo's.

If you've somehow been living under a rock, just as an FYI, the ESPN GameDay crew is coming to Charlottesville (or more accurately, is already in Charlottesville) for Saturday's big showdown between undefeated No. 2 Virginia and No. 4 Duke. What you may not know, however, is that traveling alongside GameDay is the Travelocity Gnome, and he's been documenting his adventure.

...and Beyond:

We're thrilled to see that the Gnome is having so much fun exploring our history-filled home, but I think it's time for the Gnome to really start exploring some UVA traditions!

Gnome, you're going to need to go to The Virginian on the corner and sing Proud to be an American while standing on the tabletops. You're definitely going to need to go eat a Gusburger late at night. Have you eaten the ice cream at Chaps downtown yet? Have you crossed the train tracks behind Maarten's ye? SO MUCH TO DO, SO LITTLE TIME!

What else does the Gnome need to do?
