Upon awaking this morning I saw a glorious statement slathered across my computer screen, “Bears Maul Saints to earn Super Bowl trip”…..much better than yesterday morning’s “I’m in it to win” statement from Hillary Clinton which made me gag!
Being from the windy city and growing up with 2 older brothers I was (am) a Bears, Bulls and White Sox fan! Yep, fellow Chicagoans I said the White Sox NOT the Cubs but this post is about da Bears I’ll save da Sox for another post!
I felt it pridefully appropriate to take a stroll down memory lane….to Super bowl XX, where da Bears won da ring (and some serious cash)! What a great team, with “the refrigerator” Perry, Jim McMahon (Mr. Cocky) the colorful Mike Ditka and my personal favorite, #34…the late great Walter Payton!
Jan 26, 1986 also marked the first and only Sunday night as a kid that my brothers and I were allowed to stay home from church (bona fide PK’s). We would sing the Super bowl Shuffle instead of choir songs that night! I still know the words….to the Super bowl Shuffle that is!
To my dear friends in Indiana….do you think we can get tickets on the street for $10 a piece day of game? Jason, get working on that paper airplane as it will be the only highlight the Colts will see! Next headlines will read; “Bears MAUL the Colts to win the Super bowl!”
So who are you rooting for to take Super bowl XLl....or do you watch purely for commercial entertainment?
