Bear Libations: Vision 2012
Ingredients: One part Jagermeister, one part Carlo Rossi, one part Dr. Pepper, served at room temperature.
Best consumed with: bread.
Symbolism: The dark, brooding color of this drink represents Dr. Sloan's opaque vision (see Point 3 of our Declarations of Principles) of Baylor's future. The Dr. Pepper represents failure and greed. Little did we know that an early 1997 meeting between Dr. Sloan and Todd Stitzer, CEO of Dr. Pepper, would send shock waves throughout our bubble which still reverberate to this day. The alcohol symbolizes a simple willingness to forget.
FACT: Coke Hour became Dr. Pepper Hour changing 44 years of tradition.
FACT: Inception of the Big 12.
FACT: Dave Roberts hired. Since then: 9 football seasons, 25 wins, 85 losses, 2 more coaches.
FACT: Last win over UT, the last homecoming win since this past season's 19 Point Miracle on the Brazos.
FACT: Hideous green bear logo with edgy font introduced. R.I.P. 2004. Thank you Lord.
FACT: Dr. Pepper introduced into Australian market. Aaron "Emu" Bruce's first taste of Waco Pride and future NBDL/Euro/NBA glory.
Warning: This drink does not give one 20/12 vision. I don't think that is possible, but our lawyers inform us to mention this.
BearMeat faithful, please tell us if you have any warm (angry), fuzzy (blacked out), and kind (disturbing) thoughts about Baylor, vintage 1997.
