WACO, TX - I want to see this at Baylor Ballpark! (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)
If you're a current student at Baylor University and you're reading this, you must go watch your Baylor Bears play baseball this weekend! If you live in or around Waco and you enjoy sports, you must go watch Baylor Baseball this weekend! I can't stress this point enough. This is the series of the year in the entire Big 12 Conference. DON'T MISS IT!
This weekend will feature the #2 team in the country (the Aggies) playing the #6 team in the country (your Baylor Bears). I just posted links to a couple of great articles that highlight the significance of these games, and if you haven't read those you really should. These teams are playing for a chance to be one of the top eight seeds in the NCAA Tournament, a prize that paves the way to the CWS in Omaha.
The first game tonight will be played in College Station, so don't show up at Baylor Ballpark this evening (unless you just want to chill with the Beaver, which could actually be really fun). Saturday and Sunday's games will be played in Waco, however, so everyone needs to show up in force and support the Bears. I will be incredibly disappointed in any Baylor fans within driving distance that don't show up! Just do it! Wait, can we say "just do it" on this site now that RGIII is with Adidas? What is Adidas' slogan again? Impossible is nothing... Seriously? That's not very catchy. They should just go ahead and change it to "No Pressure, No Diamonds" and give RGIII royalties. Anywho, GO WATCH BAYLOR BASEBALL SATURDAY AND SUNDAY!!
