Okay, off by a couple days, but you get the idea.
I was actually hoping the Bears would get Kyle Orton to come play some quarterback in Chicago.
Walking past that live radio broadcast coming from the bottom floor window of the Tribune Towers on Michigan, I heard them say the Bears had gotten Josh McCown instead.
That sounds pretty close to "McNown" and I missed a step, processing.
No, they definitely didn't say "Cade" so I calmed down and waay back in the brain remembered that name.
Josh McCown of the Arizona Cardinals, right?
Looked him up, and he's actually Josh McCown of the Cards, Lions, Raiders, and Panthers.
He's got 35 touchdowns and 40 interceptions.
Sounds about right.
You guys get that stack of BLACK FRIDAY! catalogues and coupon stuff with your paper yesterday?
I counted 7 different "DOOR BUSTERS!" sales.
Couldn't help with this McCown cartoon, I believe he's getting $300 grand for backing up the rest of the season.
On Christmas morning, unwrapping a gift with McCown inside would be like getting something from the neighbor's garage sale. But whatever - hopefully young Caleb Hanie comes in and owns the offense.
Go Bears, and I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving.
