    Da Bearz!!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    The latest prop bet for the Super Bowl:

    How long will it take Billy Joel to sing the National Anthem? Over/Under 1 minute 44 seconds.

    Yep - folks are actually placing money on this one...

    Indy Wins

    Prediction: Indianapolis 24 - Chicago 10

    Prediction made at 10:22 AM EST Super Bowl Sunday. What's the chance of this Bear grabbing a flight and taking it to the western edge of the International Date Line, picking up the final score (via shortwave. perhaps?), and posting the score as a PREDICTION, with a time stamp that is BEFORE the game? I need a drink.

    It really doesn't matter to me who wins. The middle-of-the-night move by the Colts (years ago) should make me mad.....it doesn't.....an owner should be able to move his team wherever he wants to move it. The way he did it, though.....makes even a gentle ole' Bear want to turn angry and.....years later.....root against the Colts.

    I like Peyton Manning.....he is very good and it is always nice to see a man win a ring in a storied career. OTHO.....his whiny brother......hrmph......

    Why is it people who don't watch a football game all year are suddenly experts when it comes to the Super Bowl

    Shut up and watch the game already.

    King B brought home a projector from school and we had a big wall size screen to watch. It was pretty cool! I can't wait to watch a movie that way. just like the theatre only you can stop and go to the bathroom...
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    Returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown does not help your chances of winning (see OSU and Bears lowlight films). Glad it was a 'good' game.

    I'm not a fan of either team, I root for God's team, yes the Packers! (for the record)

    There is no reason why Rex Grossman should be the starting QB for the Bears next year. His performance last night was TERRIBLE and he should have been named MVP for the Colts. Easily one of the worst starting QBs in Super Bowl history. Good news for the Bears is that Jeff Garcia is a free agent next year.

    his stat line:

    20-28 passing, 165 yards, 1td, 2 INT, 2 fumbles.

    I feel like the Saints were avenged last night. Peyton may play for another team, but he's still a native and he brought it home for us.

    Did anyone else think that the commercials were subpar this year?

    Decent Game... all the turnovers made it interesting thanks to the rain.

    Half time ... Prince was horrible, more like "Purple Pain" than "Purple Rain"

    Commercials ... worst ever!

    Brief Postmortem.

    This years Super Bowl wasn't all that super.

    Yes I did, nothing really made our group laugh out loud... only close items we the Rock, Paper, Siccors from Budweiser and the animals trying to use a real mouse for Blockbuster, otherwise yawn

    Did anyone catch on Prince's halftime show when he raised the curtain and did it in shadow form...a part of his guitar was placed in an 'appropriate' position.

    I just *KNEW* that he'd come through in the clutch again!



    Now, with Grossman likely out next season, how many starting QBs will the Bears have gone through during Brett Favre's tenure?

    Interesting aside here, an item for the annual Beloit College poll - in the minds of 2007's incoming university freshmen, Brett Favre has always been the Packers' starting QB - they have no direct memory of anyone else (they were 2YO when Don Majkowski went down with that injury and Favre, his backup QB, went in and rallied the Packers to a comeback win vs the Bengals, started the next game and hasn't missed a start since).

    Hmmm, I thought Prince was great. Better than the Stones last year (and yes I am a fan) and lots of fun. Surprised to hear anything bad about that performance. Now the Bears.......
