McLane Stadium

We had the opportunity to tour McLane Stadium shortly before it opened to the public last month and, y'all, it was sooooo fun. We had been working on projects surrounding the stadium for so long that it was easy to forget about how amazing and exciting this venue is for the Baylor family. And what it means for the University family as well.

So here are a few of my snapshots from the big day. :)

The Bears' locker room...

...where the managers were loading in gear for the first scrimmage. Yes, that is Bryce Petty's locker.

And I may have made a point to find our favorite British player's locker as well.

Standing on the field - particularly with that giant screen at the other end - will make anyone feel tiny, I think.

B-Tack and I snapped a quick pic for posterity's sake.

The recruit room is, well, ELECTRIC.

The President's Suite has some amazing views. And, aside from the comfy chairs, food spread and air conditioning, we pretty much have the same view. Ours is just across the stadium.

Our friends in Baylor Vision have new, swanky digs. :)

And Baylor Club is pretty sweet.

This is the view from Drayton McLane's Founder's Suite. Yes, my former boss.

And in the underground parking garage where this girl will NEVER park.

All in all, it was such a super fun experience. It was really hot by the time we were finished but well worth it. The sun was certainly shining on the Bears' new home on this fine summer day. 

And, hopefully, will continue to do so for many days ahead.

Sic 'em!
