LittleBear's first football game!

We took LittleBear out to Floyd Casey Stadium for his first football game Saturday, as Baylor hosted Sam Houston State in the 2010 season opener. (The Bears beat the Bearkats, 34-3.)

LittleBear did great! It was a 6 p.m. kickoff, so we left the house about 4 in order to have time to walk around some of the tailgating and such before finding our seats. That, in turn, meant LittleBear's afternoon nap was cut short, and then with the night game he was out well past his normal bedtime. Thankfully, our seats were in the shade, and with a high temperature of 91, the day was about as cool as a day this time of year in Texas. (We left early in the fourth quarter, as LittleBear really was starting to fade, but overall we think he did really, really well.) Here's a shot of the three of us before the game (and here are some more of our pics from the game, if you're interested):

He wasn't very interested in what was going on down on the field, but boy did he love the band! Just about every time the band started playing -- which was often -- LittleBear started bouncing or dancing or waving his arms (see video below for a shot during the halftime performance). We knew he loved music, but this was fun to see. Perhaps he'll be a drum major in that band someday!

The rest of the time, he was kept occupied looking around and enjoying his snacktrap full of Cheerios (which Mommy had to fill up three times!). In the third quarter, he made friends with the two young boys sitting in front of us, who took a great deal of interest in him and started playing "catch" with LittleBear, as he would toss his water bottle to them and they would hand it back. That made him laugh and laugh. Very cute!

We look forward to enjoying many more Baylor games in the coming weeks and years!

Sic 'em, Baylor football, and sic 'em, LittleBear!
