I park below the AON Center for work every day.
If you're going to a Bears game, it's the perfect place to park with the busses picking you up literally in front of the building.
This morning when I was parking for work, there was a Bears Fan just leaving.
Yesterday was one loooooong day if you actually went to Soldier.
I will continue to learn the tendencies of Marc Trestman as time goes along, but I had a heart attack at the end of regulation when he... didn't call any timeouts.
He bet all his money on the D being able to hold the Ravens to a field goal, and... well... he won.
Lions lose, it's all good for Bear Fans.
But tornadoes (if I hear "tornadic activity one more time I'll go ballistic) at Thanksgiving are something I never signed up for.
It was the most surreal day ever.
I watched the weather guy just like you did, saw the first photos of incredible devastation - whole sections of towns just flattened and they're talking to some guy who is there and that biscuithead voice - whoever was asking questions to the person "on the ground" is looking at the same pictures I am and asking (my words), "You mean to tell me that houses have been destroyed?"
Not a word about injuries.
Then cut to somebody else who says (again, my words), "Well the most important thing is if you've just turned on the tv, the Bears game has been delayed so you're not missing anything..."
Just a crazy day.
Anyway, on the field there actually was some amazing football.
When you have to play (or surf) on a field of grass that just moves under your feet and there's nothging but water and mud underneath, it's pretty awesome to have Matt Forte on your team, an actual offensive line, and a backup QB like Josh McCown.
And a kicker like Robbie Gould.
Bears 23 Ravens 20.
ps: The grass at Soldier Field? Hmmm.
ps ps: this rainbow popped out for about 3 minutes after the first storm.
