The Non-Ferocious Terriers

So this is a week late but better late than never, right? Our Baylor Bears kicked off the 2013 season with a contest featuring the fighting Wofford Terriers. Now, if you're like me, you've not heard much about Wofford. I can tell you, though, that they had some very nice fans. I will cheer for them forever. Unless they're playing Baylor again.

After arriving very early (first game excitement, you know?), it was finally time for Meet the Bears.

We saw a lot of favorite facies...

...and some new ones...

...and all seemed to have their game face intact. Even Coach Briles. Or maybe especially Coach Briles.

And you know Lache is always ready to shake some hands. :-)

While Ahmad always brings up the rear.

We headed over to the Alumni Network tent and saw our buddy, Derek, on the way. He's the voice of the Bears and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.

Next we headed over to sign a beam that will be going over to the new stadium.

Then it was time (or past time, really) for food.

And fun.

And fellowship.

And sorority sisters reunited!

What I can tell you about the actual game is that it was blistering hot, dehydration set in quickly, and it was - in a word - BRUTAL.

But we won. By a huge margin. And everyone stayed healthy.

Those are always the goals of non-con, right? :-)
