Pam and I went to Baylor with Kelly to watch her play in the Alumni/Lady Bears lacrosse game. It has been an annual event that started eight years ago. We had a few extra moments and took a quick tour of the basketball/special events building. Kelly's graduation was held there in 2004.The current team is just starting their season and this was their first scrimmage. I felt bad for the alumni because most haven't touched a stick in months. Still, the alumni jumped out to a 3-0 lead. By halftime the score was even at 4-4. The alumni came back late in the game to tie it at 8-8.
Among the cheering fans on the sideline were Sheay (one of Kelly's current roommates) and some friends who also went to Baylor. It was a very entertaining game. The alums were a bit winded but they kept firing at the net and making goals! The refs were talking about overtime and the alumni put a stop to that! They were happy with an injury-free tie game.Afterwards the Lady Bears passed out game shirts to everyone and all posed for a group photo.Then the alums wanted one of their own.Later we joined quite a few of the girls and their families and friends at Crickets, a bar and restuarant in downtown Waco. Since it was Homecoming Weekend and the football game was over (Oklahoma State beat Baylor 34-7) most places were crowded.
After dinner we took a driving tour of the campus. They have done a lot of building over the last few years and Baylor is striving to become a top tier university. It is a beautiful campus. One of the hot spots on campus is Common Grounds. It is an amazing coffee shop on campus. We stopped there before we started out on the 2 hour drive back to Dallas.
We took Kelly home, spoke a little with her roommate Meesh and went back out to our campsite at East Fork Park, near Wylie. That concludes another post in the Roadrunner Chronicles. Thanks for viewing.
