Just imagine it, Baylor fans. Legions clad in green and gold invading the Crescent City. Baylor, victorious over Duke and #1-overall seed Kentucky, representing the South Region in the Final Four. Our Bears standing on the precipice of history in the school's first national semifinals in six decades. That would be pretty incredible right?
On this day of days where Baylor fans found out that we'll soon be at least $5 million richer per season while sitting in a riverside stadium the envy of the college football world, SBNation announced that, thanks to a partnership with Buick, up to 8 erstwhile bloggers, potentially including yours truly, will travel to New Orleans to watch the Final Four. All Baylor has to do is make it there and OurDailyBears.com will follow to watch.
The package, available to the blog managers of each of the Final Four teams and one guest, includes two flights to New Orleans, a Buick to drive once we get there, a hotel room, and two tickets to the Final Four. It also includes access to Buick activities like media events and parties, so if it happens, we're going to be able to provide Baylor Bears fans everywhere with an unrivaled behind-the-scenes look at the Final Four.
Obviously, I was going to root for Baylor to make it all the way no matter what. Now, thanks to Buick, if Baylor should be so fortunate to get to New Orleans, I will be there to watch them and cheer them in person thanks to Buick. Sic 'em, Bears!
