In case you didn't catch it from the blog title, the Barretts heart BU. Since we were at Baylor for 4-5 years and then moved to Houston post graduation, the two always seemed like different worlds to us. Different cities, different phases of life and different friends. That was until last weekend when our two worlds collided!
Baylor made it to the Elite 8!! Sic Em! It is a huge deal for us bears! This is only the 2nd time in history Baylor has made an Elite 8 appearance. The other time was back in the olden days when there weren't as many teams to beat (or something like that, I just get all my basketball info from Tate & Tye). Anyway, the games were here in Houston and Tate bought us tickets! It was a blast! Well, mostly Friday was a blast, but Sunday was fun too. Tye came into town with the Baylor crowd. He stayed in our guest room (aerobed on the living room floor). As always, it was fun to eat dinner, hang out and visit with him.
There were so many Baylor fans here, you could feel the excitement. Over 92, 000 people attended both games combined, which broke the record for a regional game. Ca-ray-Z! It was a once in a lifetime experience being at the Elite 8, cheering on our Bears with George Bush and Chris Brown! Yeah, all the celebs were at the game too. Told you it was a big deal.
