Getting excited for opening day…will be in the lot tailgating 12 hours from now.
As my final comment before the Bears hopefully get to 1-1, I just have to say again how disappointed I’ll be to see them wearing their white jerseys at home.? Apparently noone feels as strongly as I do about this, but I do feel strongly about it.
Actually, I’d like to see them wear navy-on-navy once a year (as they have in two night losses to the Packers at this point).? For that reason, I’m afraid we’ll never see that look again.? In 2003, on his radio show, former coach Dick Jauron was asked if we would see that look that season.? His response was something like “the McCaskey’s are very protective about the Bears uniform, and I don’t think you’ll see that again.”
So why break a 60+ year tradition and start wearing white at home?? Have the McCaskeys been asleep on this one?? Fine, as long as you give me navy-on-navy once in a great while, OK?
The Bears are not a fad team.? Other teams switch back and forth from wearing white at home, then dark at home, etc.? The Bears wear navy at home, dammit.? (Even though I’ll be seeing them in white tomorrow….?)
