Yes I am a Pirate

Aaaargh! It has been a roller coaster season so far. That's part of the reason I haven't posted anything because I didn't want to jinx the team--apparently that didn't work. After going 3-0 and being ranked #14 in the country with wins over #17 Virginia Tech and #8 West Virginia, ECU lost the next three games including one versus the Wolfpuppies. My friend (and old Young Life kid) Jack Schultz is playing his first season as a Pirate and he is now up to date on how crazy football at ECU can be--up and down!They beat Memphis this past weekend and are now carrying a 4-3 record into a bye week. They will not play again until Sunday, that's right Sunday, November 2nd against Central Florida down in Orlando. Last weekend at the Memphis game, Kelly, my mom, Emily, and Barbara sat in the club level seats(warm and out of the rain) and my dad, Wally, and I sat in my seats(cold and in the rain) Here are a few pictures:OOne of my best friends, David Myrick, and his wife Megan were in town to visit this weekend. I got to meet their daughter Olivia for the first time. David, Megan, and Olivia are moving to Charleston! Kelly and I are so excited that they have moved back from the left coast. and... this just in...
It was just announced this afternoon, that East Carolina and Appalachain State will renew their rivalry that ended in 1979. App State will come to Greenville on September 5, 2009 to open the season for both teams. I have to admit I didn't want this game to happen, but then I remembered that NC State and UNC said the same thing about playing poor little East Carolina. So now I've changed my thinking and I can't wait for the game. I hope that all of you Appalachain fans will make the trek down the mountain to Greenville for some good times next year. This will be the first time that Kelly will be able to wear her ASU gear in the stadium in Greenville. And, we will not be having a baby in September next year in fear of missing this game. August and October are possibilities, however that might change depending on the rest of the '09 schedule.
