So, we've been collecting all those "state" quarters, got the big cardboard book where you stick 'em in.
And the Alaska quarter just came out.
Got one in my change at a 7-11.
When I saw the graphic for Alaska was a big bear, well... seems not right for a state not even attached to the mainland to steal the symbol of the NFL'S first place team in the black and blue division.
And I think Mayor Richard M. Daley ought to do something about it.
Like, make our own quarter.
A Chicago Bears quarter.
I mean, I admire the educational aspect of doing the states thing with quarters, and I'm a huge Abe Lincoln fan so the Illinois quarter is cool.
But imagine how collectible a Chicago Bears quarter would be?
An entire generation of coin-collecting nerds would happen overnight, starting at age 4 or 40.
So Mayor Daley, I'm expecting this idea to receive some fast-track attention.
Arrange a meeting with Roger Goodell and make this happen.
In the meantime for good luck, I'm carrying a "Bears" quarter with me to watch them flatten the Falcons.
This Bears D should make young Atlanta rookie qb Matt Ryan get some happy feet.
And there is truly nothing better than watching a Bears defensive backfield that unloads on receivers like they have been.
You gotta love our strong safety if for no other reason than the guy's name is "Payne".
And Kyle Orton.
If the Chicago Cubs have taught you nothing else, you should have learned by now to celebrate when you can, and right now Orton looks so un-Bear-like with the long tosses that I'm just mesmerized.
And as for Alaska, why don't you guys do a moose or snow or something?
