Tag: 2012 ECU Football
This football weekend had a lot more in common with a sailing weekend than most others. It was an incredibly wet one and we even deployed some of our sailing techniques like hanging our wet clothing in the shower, etc with the RV. The 7pm game meant we had all morning & afternoon to tailgate.
With the rain, we got off to a slow start while trying to stay inside or under the awning to stay dry while we waited for everyone else to arrive. The rain held off a bit for the final hour before the kickoff so we could get our traditional flip cup game in.
Throughout the 1st and 2nd quarters the rain came down. With 8 minutes left in the second half as a decent storm was heading our way, an announcement come on the PA that the game was being postponed, the stadium evacuated and everyone should head to Minges Colosseum or their cars.
During the rain delay we hung around the RVs watching other games on TV and then stayed there until after halftime once the game did resume. The rain continued to come down, but not with thunder and lightning as we had earlier.
Pictures starting here.
JG, Preston, Chris and I took the RV down to Columbia SC to see East Carolina play South Carolina. We arrived Friday night and got an awesome tailgate spot with several other ECU RVs very close to the stadium. Friday night we grilled some steaks, set everything up, and relaxed watching football on TV. Saturday we tailgated, went to the game, tailgated some more and went out for drinks. We might not have won the game, but we certainly won the tailgate and had a great time doing it.
