Someone with a biting sense of humor has updated ECU’s logo to the modern version of Somali prates.
If you read Deadspin or Every Day Should Be Saturday you’ve probably aleady seen this, but we thought we would add it here and put it forever in the archives. Apparently, it all started at the site New Raleigh, where the comments from the ECU faithful are shall we say far less than pleased. Many folks there say that the modern version of the logo equates their beloved school in Greenville with terrorists, unlike the old logo and its association with the fun-loving swashbucklers from the 17th century.
I guess ECU doesn’t mind being associated with terrorists from four centuries ago but hates being associated with the ones that are of contemporary times. To me, there really isn’t much difference at all, save the difference in years.
No doubt this has Terry Holland going “Arrrrrgh!”
