The timing was perfect. As soon as I got out of the car, I saw a young lady leaving the hotel. I thought, "That looks like RG3's wife." Then I realized that the man just ahead of her was RG3! I fell in step with her and said hi, then I found myself standing there with Coach Art Briles and RG3! I was a bit star-struck, I must admit.
I wish I could tell you about the great conversation we had, but needless to say there were a few other people who wanted to chat. I did get to shake hands with RG3 and talk to these two Baylor greats for a moment.
We stayed there in front of the hotel and watched as the team loaded the buses to go to their final practice. It was fun seeing them in their street clothes, joking around with each other and with the fans present.
After milling around for a bit, we headed to the back of the hotel where the pep rally would be held.
Baylor great Walter Abercrombie, who led the Bears to their last conference championship, had some good words.
The rally has us pepped up, the players seemed excited and ready to play, and the fans are ready for some football!
