I promised myself I wouldn't even touch Rex Ryan's foot fetish thing because I'm so above that kinda stuff.
So may I start this post with an apology to myself for being such a big fat liar?
Speaking of big and fat-headed (pretend you heard a Bevis and Butthead laugh here), you either saw Ryan's fake punt call live or by now read about it and it's backfiring effect.
Yesterday's Bears/Jets game was, since the Bears won, a SUPER fun game to watch filled with bombs and offense and incredible luck and 38 points for the home team. Cutler was amazing, Forte was my own favorite aspect of the game (113 yards, 19 carries, plus some GIANT catches), and Fear Of Devin Hester caused the Jets to do these dinky kick-offs to keep the ball well in front of our Scariest Bear.
Hester is literally Ryan's worst nightmare.
We went from a super-high first quarter to disaster and despair in the 2nd back to super-high in the 3rd to hang on for dear life in the 4th.
Bears 38 Jets 34.
We had guests staying over, and once in awhile my wife will say something crazy like, "Why don't you men go to a bar to watch the Bears game."
And outside I'll casually say, "Okay" while inside I say: "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
The bartender was talented enough to pour Guinness and, with the last of the pour, make a 3-leaf clover design in the thick, foamy head.
At the beginning of the 2nd quarter, we asked for a 4 leaf clover.
Then Cutler threw the interception and New York scored 24 points.
Should any of you find yourself in a similar situation with the Guinness, I suggest you stick with the 3-leaf clover design.
In other news, former Bear Mike Singletary gets booted from the head coaching job with the 49ers, and former Bear Jim Harbaugh is rumored to take his place.
But wouldn't it be awesome if Harbaugh stayed in college ball, where he fits, and let that freaking Jon Gruden go coach San Francisco instead? So that Gruden's just plain wrong voice won't infect ESPN's football broadcasts?
And back to the Bears.
Regular season ends in Green Bay with, I think, home field advantage on the line for the Bears. And you have to imagine the Packers are one seriously pissed off team who think they should be in the driver's seat where the Bears currently sit.
Remember that first game, where the Pack gave the Bears about a mile in penalties?
I don't expect that to happen again.
SO looking forward to this one.
