I started this blog in May of 2007. After the Chicago Bears lost Super Bowl 41, many said “there will always be next year, we’re going back to Super Bowl 42!”
I always had it in my gut that I knew how hard it would be to repeat, but I have to say that I thought I’d at least have one more division championship to talk about on this blog.
But then 2007, 2008, 2009 went by and the Bears became irrelevant. I personally went from appearing on television shows to being an afterthought because the Bears were an afterthought.
But now, four years after the last Chicago Bears season of dominance, the Bears are NFC North Champions. This is especially sweet to me coming in a win against the dysfunctional Minnesota Vikings, only Chicago’s second win in their state in the last decade. Again sweet to me since all the “experts” had Green Bay and Minnesota running away with the conference championship.
Glad to share this division championship with all of you good readers of the blog. It was a fun night. Hopefully we can put the horrors of Lord Favre to rest forever after Corey Wootton’s monster hit, which I loved.
Now there is still business to attend to. In order to preserve the #2 seed, the Bears need to beat the Jets at home this Sunday, and deal a final blow to the Packers in Green Bay on January 2nd.
