I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, fall in North Carolina is my favorite time of year.  You know fall is approaching when you get to sleep with your windows open and…oh yeah….when college football kicks off!  With East Carolina University just an hour down the road from Arlington Place and two ECU alums here in the office, we definitely feel right in the middle of Pirate Nation. 

The official start to ECU’s football season is today at 2:00 as the Pirates take on Tulsa.  Today is also the debut of the new and improved Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium that has undergone a 7,000 seat expansion this year.  The stadium can now accomodate 50,000 purple and gold, passionate, Pirate fans.  We’re excited for an eventful season….Go Pirates!
