On Saturday, May 14, 2016, Floyd Casey Stadium, home of Baylor Bears Football was imploded. https://vimeo.com/167029200
With the falling concrete and rising dust memories of good times and not so good times, filled the memory banks of players, coaches, spectators, graduates and even rivals.
On December 3, 2013 I drove to Waco to take photographs of Floyd Casey Stadium. The temperature was 87 degrees. I wore shorts and a T-shirt.
My photographs show the perfect light and the last day the sun would shine on Floyd Casey Stadium. No photograph is retouched.
On December 7, 2013 the last football game in the stadium was played between Baylor and The University of Texas. The temperature was 14 degrees. I was home by the fire.
Oh yes, the Baylor Bears were victorious in their last game in Floyd Casey Stadium. Who did they defeat? Why, the Texas Longhorns.
How many days until kick off? As a few minutes ago, it was 99 days, 48 minutes and 22 seconds.

Been to Waco a buncha times; my nephew got his Masters at Baylor…loved it. I remember the water tasting like dirt and my work partner got food poisoning. It’s really an interesting place.
Interesting? To say the least.
Sic em Bears!!!!
