Give or take a few minutes:
At this very moment, twenty years ago-
the Chicago Bears were placing the finishing touches
on demolishing the New England Patriots; 46 – 10.
January 26, 1986.
Twenty years later, I still remember it pretty well;
Jumping for joy with my father, with the disbelief that
this had actually all happened;
Plus, who could forget the Shuffle?
Yet, I feel like I’m living in the past, forever supporting
the Bears to go all the way to the Super Bowl again.
But to my dismay, nothing.
I’m tired of accepting mediocrity.
Instead of being competitive 2 out of 10 years-
Why not 8 out of 10 years?
Where’s a real QB?
Oh, he’s being ostracized for going 10-5 as a rookie.
What are people thinking?
Where was the defense when the offense actually scored 21 points?
We finally got a 1,300 yard rusher (the first since Walter Payton),
and I bet management gets rid of him in lieu of Cedric Benson.
Thomas Jones honors the Bears jersey, Benson does not.
I am still disgustipated with all our coaches inability to make
adjustments during the game versus the Carolina Panthers.
Please, for the city’s sake Chicago Bears….
….don’t turn into the Chicago Cubs.
