Virginia Is For Losers

Game day. I have been asked why, instead of "Go ECU" or "Go Pirates" I always put instead "First Down... PIRATES!" It's tradition, and I'm not sure for how long, the announcer will give the play information and end with, "Where it will be a First Down..." and then this pregnant pause before shouting "PIRATES!" The crowd would try to anticipate that pause, and never could. Now, it's part of the Dowdy-Ficklen East Carolina Experience. Today is UVA at East Carolina, where it will be a...
First Down... PIRATES!
24 - 7 East Carolina at the half.
Now that's more like it.
31 - 21 final. Woo-Hoooooo!

I gotta give up a woo-hooo on that one for the purple too. Impressive.
Hippies trounced their opponents also.
Just an aside, Elon - of, "is that their cheerleaders or their first string?" fame, skinned WCU.
Shameful, just shameful.
Guess those mountain folk are more depressed than usual today! App must have ticked them off.
