Ballin!! Lady Pirates 4-0

For the first time since the 1998-99 season, the Lady Pirates basketball team is 4-0. With a 75-70 win over American, the lady Pirates are taking steps in the right direction to compete with the best in Conference USA. For a second there, I was wondering if the Lady Pirates already had a basketball practice facility. If only the men's team was playing as well.

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.

Below is a message from him sent out today regarding Pirate expectations and maintaining unity and resolve.

That “Ray of Sunshine” Moment

Unbelievably, one other thing I learned from Coach Emory was how to let myself be loved. . I have to admit, I loved this man. He would often say, “Ahhh, if I can’t put my hands on ya, I can’t coach ya. I’m jus’ showing ya I love ya.” Knowing that he was showing me “love” helped ease the pain I experienced each time he jerked my by the face mask when I missed a block in practice. It felt good to be loved. Tough-loved. -A story from former East Carolina football player Bob Alexander

Expect some changes in Football parking this year…

As the season draws nearer, everyone is anticipating the arrival of their season tickets and parking passes.

With the growth of the ECU facilities come many consequences. Some see them as good, others see them as bad (I guess that all depends on whether you parked in the softball field lot last year).

Shuffle up & deal, Pirates!

Get ready for the Pirate Club's "A Night in G-Vegas" event that will serve as a fundraiser for the 2009 scholarship fund. I can't think of a better way to bring in a lot of money for the 2009 scholarship fund and also give the Pirate fans an opportunity to meet and greet and gamble (fake money of course). Dinner and drinks will be included and you will have the chance to win a bunch of great prizes like beach vacations and off-shore fishing trips. Read the post to find out more about the prizes, the food, the celebrity dealers and much, much more.
