Ed Suhrbur called with a ticket for me on Friday.
It was about 11 am at LAX, coming home after two back to back trips, and I really wanted to just go be with the family.
(That was the fog day, when I was supposed to get to Chi at 7 but didn't get in til 1.)
"Thanks Ed, but I can't." I said.
Who knew it would be THE ONLY FANTASTIC BEARS GAME OF THE WHOLE SEASON!
Still, even at home, such an unbelievable treat to watch the Bears just totally dismantle the Packers today.
There was a story in the TRIB this morning about Brett Favre having a little fun with the press, listing all the forgettable Bear quarterbacks he's played against over the years.
And I think that pissed off Hunter Hillenmeyer.
Cause old Brett took some pretty good licks from him today.
Not sure about the final stats, but Favre played as cold as the wind chill.
I made a turkey out back on the grill and it took a little longer than on your basic winter day.
It was cooold.
But Orton and Peterson both did well, special teams were amazing, the Bear D played like men...and when Brian Urlacher made the final interception and ran 85 untouched yards with it, I was at top volume.
So, I'll say that was a pretty nice surprise from The Bears.
Happy Holidays to you too.
