I toyed with the idea of skipping attendance at the Vikings game. I figured I would get more satisfaction out of getting counted in the no-show tally than seeing the Bears get embarrassed for the 10th time this season. But my paying $136 to the McCaskey family and not getting a penny’s worth of entertainment isn’t palatable. Besides, the friend that’s going with me really wants to go. So I’ll be there.
But good for this group, who has recorded a video of new words for the Bears’ fight song named “Lie Down, Chicago Bears.” I still don’t think any amount of fan disgust is going to lead to major changes following the 2009 dumpster of a season. But we have to start somewhere.
