Class at Lane Stadium
There were a couple of classy moments from yesterday’s game, I thought I would share.
Thank You, ECU
Prior to kick off, the crowd cheered, “Thank You, ECU”. Not only did the school give us a very generous donation, but they did still come and played us in some intimidating circumstances. 🙂
Our own Corps of Cadets lined the entry way to welcome the competitors as they came out on the field.
Lack of Sevens
I was pleased with the almost complete lack of #7 jerseys. In fact, I only saw one the entire day:
ESPN Coverage of Retired Numbers
I saw some of the fourth quarter on television. At one point they talked about Frank Beamer and what he has meant to the school. They showed some old photos of the coach and then for the remainder of the piece, they showed the flag at the stadium that reads “Beamer 25”. In the ESPN shot, though, the flag is very far to the right. Beamer’s name wasn’t centered. What’s to the right of the Beamer flag? Vick’s flag. I suspect ESPN kept the Vick flag out of the shot on purpose…which was nice, kept the focus on the positive story about Beamer.
