Wait til Next Year . . . is making a come back.

I am going to mix a bit of the philosophy of my life into this blog as I continue to highlight some of my baseball card collection. (hoping the card collectors of this world welcome me back)

Its been a tough 18 months for me . . . the Chicago Cubs have had it rough as well.

This site will be devoted to all those who need to define what "wait til next year" means.

Bear Fans have to "wait til next year"

I know this is a baseball card blog but I am a Chicagoan and the Bears are the only other sports team I cheer for, besides the Cubs of course. The Bears lost today, lost their hopes for a playoff game and solidified our off season woes.

The Bears of 2008 will be remembered for losing games they should have won and winning games they should have lost. Beating the Detroit Lions twice, the Packers once and the Vikings once; certainly was a good thing the Bears did beat the Lions twice.

Kyle Orton played respectively and could be the quarterback for some time, Matt Forte rushed for over 1000 yards and Robbie Gould (field goal kicker extraordinaire) should be the teams’ MVP.

On the down side was that Devon Hester did not even lead the team in punt or kickoff return average and had zero, yes zero, touchdowns from returns. Brian Urlacher, the “stud” in the middle” did not make the pro-bowl and had zero sacks, though had two interceptions.

Thank you Chicago Bears, for teasing us and disappointing us. All in all, the Bears are not in the playoffs, will have to re-tool in the off season and all of us Chicago sports fans have only to look forward to baseball spring training in Arizona and Florida, the Cubs opener in Houston on April 6th and Opening Day (April 13th) at Wrigley for the Cubs ! Go Cubs Go !
