The past couple of weeks have been exciting for Baylor Bears Basketball (men and women). The men's team made it to the NCAA Elite Eight and the women's team made it to the Final Four! I've been in contact with the Baylor Network in Waco who helped me put together some watch parties. There was a small group of us that would meet at Blitz, a sports bar with plenty of big screen TVs, to cheer our team on from the Pacific Northwest. Even though we didn't all know each other, we had a common bond in our alma mater. It was great to meet new people who I had an instant connection with. We are hoping to keeping the gatherings going even outside of sports season. We talked about trying to have watch parties during football season, but it could be difficult to find those Baylor games on Portland channels!
