Today, at 2:00PM, the Chicago Bears (our American Football team) will be hosting the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship game. If we win this, we go to the Super Bowl to win the ultimate trophy! The last time that happened was more than 20 years ago, so it's huge!!
It isn't going to be easy. Thanks to a media-led frenzy, the *rest* of the country is rooting for the Saints who have had a Cinderella-like story this year, a miraculous comeback after a devastating hurricane Katrina hit their city last year.
The only support we have right now is the Bear country weather here in Chicago - snowing and utterly cold, making for slippery conditions, perfect for the grizzlies. We hope. :-)
Now, did the Saints have to have 'Saints' in their name?! Oh, dear God, we may not be saintly, but, please, please, please, let us win! I want Chicago to celebrate!
I want the Bears to go to DISNEY WORLD!!!
We won the game, 39-14.
Miami, here we come! It's the Bears against the Indianapolis Colts on Feb 4th for the Super Bowl . Woo-hoo! :-)
