I'm On 3 Hours Sleep...
...and that's 2 more hours than I was expecting...it's 7 AM round these parts, and there's no chance I can fall back asleep...running through the gambit of emotions right now, and it is eerily quiet in my Irish neighborhood on the South Side right now...as I think about todays game, the last 26 years of my life go through my head. The Bears are about tradition, and no, it's NOT just a game, and it's NOT just a sport.
This has never happened before. Not sure what to expect. Well, I know what to expect, but I also know it will be more emotional. I took off work, I'm going for a last desperation attempt to get tickets, but most likely just going to my buddy's townhouse, have some drinks, and food of course. I can't even say how I'll feel regardless of what the result will be. I like this Packer team, but when it comes down to games like this, the anger and hate come out haha...it just happens.
My Christmas was boring. I worked Christmas Eve, and I laid around all day today. I have a small family, so I didn't miss much, but I will say I didn't care about it either way this year. I know that my passion for sports has declined as well. Sure, I still get teary eyed once in a while, but rarely do I care about losing anymore. Winning, sure, is still great. If the Bears lose in the playoffs, I don't think I'll miss a beat. This comes 4 years after I sat in my friend's basement and just cried
I want Campbell's soups, with help from Donovan of course, to come out with a new recipe for a chunky soup named the 2 Minute Drill...gravy like texture filled with mutton, because that apparently is what McNabb has turned into...or has he? He didn't have a terrible game (17-30, 210 yds, 1 INT, 1 TD) and he also had a 36 yard run early in the 2nd quarter. So McNabb gets sacked with 2:15 to go on 4th down. Fine. Detroit kicks a FG to make it a 6 point game, meaning Washington needs a TD to extend
The Bears are tied for 1st place...I know there have been years with worse divisions, but this team has no business being 4-3. It feels weird NOT to cheer for them, NOT to pull for them, I guess I just don't want to get disappointed. Also, rarely do I find teams that, the entire offseason has an obvious need, in preseason the need is still not addressed, and with a solid O-Line, I think the Bears COULD be a 10 or 11 win team. I feel bad for the O-Lineman too, to an extent. Olin can't do everything,
