Lets make the spring football game a Beartastic event - Our Daily Bears (njpapabear), For my entire life I have gone by one name, my own. I now have so many user names and pass words, its hard to remember them all. I am under cover on the Our Daily Bears web site as nj papa bear....

Heidi, at the Baylor U ticket office tells me the stadium opens (for the spring football game) at 10 am. The first 5,000 fans get a Baylor U football poster, and guess what, all you need is a heart beat and you are in, it’s FREE! You can sit any where you want. How about the first row at the 50 yard line, where the big bears sit, go for it.

I can’t think of a better way to spend Saturday afternoon on April 21st. Hope the band is there. I am going to be there, will you? Sic ‘em!!
