President Bush Takes in Baylor Women's Game

Former President George W. Bush attended the Baylor women's basketball game against Oklahoma in one of his first public appearances since returning to his Crawford ranch.

Bush and his wife, Laura, walked onto the court Wednesday evening with Baylor coach Kim Mulkey after the former president addressed the team before the game.

As soon as Bush and Mulkey emerged from the tunnel, without any introduction, the crowd stood and broke into loud applause.

The Bushes then took their seats in the first row behind the bench.

The Baylor campus is about 25 miles from the Bush ranch in Crawford, where they have been staying since last week when President Barack Obama took office.
