Tweets of the Night -- Baylor Opens McLane Stadium vs. SMU

New, 3 comments

When the opportunity presents, I like to immortalize a few of the better tweets with their own thread.

WE HAVE NEW PICTURES AGAIN!!!
WE HAVE NEW PICTURES AGAIN!!!

Because of the wonder that is/was McLane Stadium's WiFi system (which wasn't without its flaws but was, somewhat remarkably, usable throughout), I was able to keep a pretty close eye on things via the Twitter.  Here's the best I saw all evening.

She's not wrong.

Pretty common theme. People liked the intro.

That was a change-up. Now back to the intro.

That was fun. Then the largest Baylor Line in history took the field.

I don't know how much they showed of the pregame festivities on television, but a couple things: 1) There were politicians everywhere, including both senators, the Governor, Justice Willett, and a former POTUS, and 2) George W. Bush is still wildly popular at Baylor. Not RGIII popular, obviously, but crazy popular. Didn't hurt that he was doing selfies with the band and might have been wearing the coat Christian Bale gave that homeless guy in Batman Begins.

This was the point where it looked like we were going to go full Baylor Offense on them. As it turned out, we did not.

I can't express to you how much I laughed at this when I saw it. I thought I might die.

Then we thought Bryce Petty might die.

PEOPLE ON TWITTER THOUGHT I WAS JOKING WHEN I TWEETED THAT HE WAS CONDUCTING THE BAND, EVEN THOUGH I SAID I WAS TOTALLY SERIOUS.

I can't decide what was worse: that we had a kick blocked, got the ball back, and still didn't score because Shock Linwood has a pathological need to stretch for the goal line when he shouldn't

OR

That it took 15 minutes for the officials to clean this play up. It was like a second halftime.

I originally wanted these to be in chronological order, but that's out the window now.

I'm grouping the next two tweets together because they are awesome. You can't properly understand one without the other.

And finally....

BUT WAIT, ONE MORE:

Yeah, that's the good stuff.
