Let’s Hear from the UK..

Good to see the Bears do what they needed to do last night against a team that appears to be pretty bad.  Not sure how much of that game was the Bears being better than we thought, or the Vikings being even worse than everyone thinks.  But the Bears got it done in pretty dominating fashion, which is good.

Just can’t believe Devin Hester.  Watched him take that kickoff from our end zone, thought it was odd that the Vikings kicked it into his hands, and thought “he doesn’t take every kick back so why get hopes up?”  Then he nailed it, obviously.  The guy is amazing.

Let’s hear from our readers in the UK-I know there are three or four of you.  Excited?  Any of you going to get out and see any public appearances?  Must be cool-the time is here.  Enjoy!  Good to know the Bears will be there on the upswing following a victory.  It’s going to be a tough game.

  1. I simply can’t wait until next Sunday! It’s special enough to see a regular season NFL game, but for it to feature my beloved Bears, now that is special! I am just hoping that the week 1 and week 6 Bears turn up rather than the week 2, 3 or 4 Bears and that we have a great game and, of course, a Bears victory.
    So what am I hoping for? A Devin Hester kick return touchdown would be nice, along with some big hits and sacks from Peppers, Urlacher, Briggs. Oh, and some mega runs by Matt Forte and big passing from Jay Cutler. What do you think – will I get them all?
    As it’s a Bucs home game, everyone attending is asked to support the home team. Needless to say I will be proudly wearing my #99 Hampton shirt and Bears fleece and shouting to lose my voice to stop the Buc’s offence!
    Cheers from the UK,

  2. Enjoy the game you guys have stolen from me here in Tampa, Stu! Looking forward to actually being able to see the Bucs on TV while they’re at home instead of it being blacked out! Bear down!

  3. Enjoy the game Stuart. The game being moved to London was a blessing in disguise, at least for my bank account. I was all set to take a trip to Tampa for this game.

  4. Have a great time Stuart.

  5. Joseph and I will be there. We’ll take a win – however it comes.

  6. I cannot wait for Sunday,

    I love this website Roy but it was tough reading last week after the Lions game. Following the win on Sunday though I’m confident we’ll see a good performance.

    I’m travelling down to London on Friday so I will have missed a lot of the build up event this week.

    Like Stuart, I’ll be proudly wearing my bears hoodie and bringing some Roker Roar (UK footy fans will know what that is) to Wembley to cheer on Da Bears.

    Word of warning though, I’ve been to the old Wembley Stadium 6 times and only ever seen the team I’ve been supporting win once.

    Hopefully the new one will bring me more luck.

    Ha’way Chicago

  7. Dave, Bill, Stuart, thanks for letting us know, and I hope you all have a great time at the game. Make it loud for the Bucs even though it’s their home game!

    I should mention that they were talking on Chicago sports radio yesterday how this game is getting very little coverage in the sports media in the UK. Is that true? I’d ask you why, but I think it would be no surprise to know that US football still is more of a curiousity outside of North America. I admit when international soccer (football, if you will) matches are played in Chicago, I have no understanding of what is going on.

    I encourage you all to please take pictures of your time at Wembley and if you wouldn’t mind if I post them on my Bears tailgating pages I’d love to do so!
