I know this is a baseball blog but . . . . I am a Chicagoan deep down and the Bears are still alive with an overtime win in week 17
I was so prepared to write a post tonight about how the Chicago Bears lose to the Green Bay Packers and end their hopes for a playoff spot this year and perpetuate the “wait til next year” theme but nooooooo they come through with an overtime field goal to win 20-17.
The game time temperature was less than 5 degrees with a wind chill of 10 below – so glad I now live in Sarasota Florida. The hopes for all Chicago Bears fans live on for one more week.
While I am a Chicago Cub and baseball fan at heart, the Chicago Bears would be considered in my veins too (just a different shade of blue). I actually attended Super Bowl XX in New Orleans in January of 1987 – the 1986 Super Bowl Shuffle team with Payton, McMahon and the Refrigerator. Many memories . . . .
Ok, enough regressing . . . the Bears live on for one more week. We do celebrate that in the sunshine state.
