Da Bears Are Doing The Superbowl Shuffle Again

Today was a great day to be an NFL fan. Since LA/OC doesn't have a team, I've gotten used to just rooting for good games to watch. Today the Bears beat the New Orleans Saints to go to the big dance down in Miami. You know you're getting old when you can remember like it was yesterday the Bears great Superbowl team of 1985. That was the team with Mike Ditka leading them, "Sweetness" Walter Payton, William "The Refridgerator" Perry, Jim McMahon, Richard Dent, Mike Singletary, Dan Hampton, Buddy Ryan and and his famed "46" defense", etc. I remember that 1985 NFC Championship game because the Bears beat my beloved Rams that day. One of the best signs at Soldier Field today said..."Ditka is God, not a Saint".

In other action, the Indianapolis Colts are returning to the Superbowl for the first time since Superbowl 3. They were the Baltimore Colts back then. I can't believe Peyton Manning finally won a game that counted. CBS's Jim Nantz made a big deal at the end of the Colt's game of both Superbowl head coaches being African-American. Big deal Jim! It has nothing to do with race. They were the ones most deserving to go. I like the Bears to win it all(by a touchdown).
