Aaargh! Pirate Fans Tailgate Before Season Home Opener

Many East Carolina fans kicked off the season home opener on Saturday by tailgating before the game.

Thousands of fans were out in full force. There was a sea of Purple and Gold near Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

Many people were grilling, playing games, and of course saying "Aaargh!"

ECU takes on Virginia Tech at 3:30 p.m.

        The only kind of trailer I have has a boat sitting on it. There is hardly a trailer with a roof on the top here at the beach Sherlock.

    Guess they didn't have much news even given the day before the anniversary of 9-11. Hope the fans enjoyed tailgateing as they definitely don't get any wins, or should I say a team that can play second half.

        Ooooohhhh the added hypocrisy that Dave has to show up here. Dave, you have no room to talk about anybody being classless. You are about as classless as a human being could ever get. You are the poster boy for a poster that would say classless.
