This weekend brought a series of firsts for the Sales (no, not our first child...yet). Stacie and I haven't made it to a Texas football game since moving to Austin but that all changed yesterday. Baylor was in town and Stacie was eager to cheer on the Bears. For the first time in a VERY long time Baylor was ranked higher the the 'Horns.
We made our way downtown an hour or so before the game hoping to take in the tailgate scene and soak-up the atmosphere. We also brought some cash looking to scalp a couple tickets. At first it didn't look like we would succeed as scalpers were looking to make a very healthy margin on their tickets. I inadvertently witnessed a scalper purchase tickets and therefore knew his buy-in price which I used against him to get the price I was looking for. This was my first time scalping tickets and I'll be humbly honest, I'm built to thrive on the black market! Fortunately we witnessed Baylor defeat Texas in Austin which hasn't happened in an equally VERY long time!
Pregame Band Action
Just in case anyone questioned what state we're in.
Post game celebration
All in all we had a great day. We got to meet-up with our good friends Drew and Donna in the season ticket holder section which was much closer to the action than our tickets. Texas fans were very hospitable to us in our Baylor gear (Stacie's 10 month pregnant status certainly helped our cause). Now if the little guy would just arrive we could tell him all about his first college football game!
