Jess and I made a weekend trip down to Greenville to see ECU take on William & Mary. ECU won and we got to go down on the field after the game.

We ended up with a beautiful day for ECU’s home game against Old Dominion University. A week ago ODU beat Virginia Tech in Norfolk and so this was expected to be a pretty competitive game. Jess joined the day trip down and we joined Lauren, Staci, Preston, Courtney and Chuck to tailgate with Jason and his crew.
We had great seats on the press box side in the shade. ECU gave ODU a good game and pulled off the win with a late field goal.
We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day to kick off the 2018 ECU Football season. We found a shady and grassy spot in the Belk lot to spread out and hang out before the game.
As we were walking in we stopped to see our RV neighbors and found out the game was delayed. We would eventually go into the game, but just as we were getting to our seats, lightning delayed the game again. We waited around for a few more hours before eventually pulling the plug and heading home when we realized a strong rain storm was headed our way. Shortly after getting on the road ECU cancelled the game and decided to play it on Sunday.
We all headed back to Raleigh for the night, but instead of going to the game we stuck with our original plan for a round of golf. That ended up being one of the better rounds I’ve played shooting a 101 and it was a lot of fun. And ECU ended up loosing the game on Sunday.
With only one more ECU Football game left for the season the game against Tulane would be the final one of the season for the entire group. The night game made it so we could hang out and tailgate all afternoon and Jess joined me for the trip to Greenville. The main item on the menu was frogmore stew. The game got interesting at the end as it went into overtime, but alas ECU wasn’t able to put points on the board and lost.
