Happy Halloween!

I posted something on Twitter earlier today to see if anyone would like to submit a picture of their ECU-themed Jack-O-Lantern to the site.

If you didn't have a chance to send pictures of your Pirate Jack-O-Lantern today, send it to me at 200YearsTooLate@gmail.com and I will get it posted as soon as I can.

TOGETHER WE STAND AND DIVIDED WE FALL!

I am sure I don't stand alone when I say I am a little frustrated with the Pirates performance over the past six games. But as great leaders always do, Terry Holland has taken a stance and made it well known that Pirate Nation must stand together and remain confident and supportive of our team.
