OK, I love my Chicago Bears. Even when they suck. I stick my chest out when they win and rant, rave, cuss and froth at the mouth when they lose (or do I have that backwards?)
In 1985, en route to the Super Bowl championship, the stars were aligned for the Bears to be the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to go undefeated. There was one small problem — the quarterback. Jim McMahon had been injured and the Defense took it upon themselves to will the team to win after win without him, except for the Miami game.
Fast forward to 2006, 21 years later. The Bears have outscored their opponents at home by over 120 points in 7 games and the Defense is reigning supreme in the NFL. Miami is a lowly 1-6 and they are coming to Soldier Field and were SUPPOSED to receive a boot to the head and have their collective hiney handed to them. It was the other way around. The only good thing about the game is that I wasnt there. I am totally surprised that there weren’t riots in the streets. Well…if the Bears don’t go on to win it all…I guess it doesn’t really matter.
