Fighting against the New Orleans Saints for the NFC Championship ...


Dad has heard rumors that they are bringing back the Super Bowl Shuffle. I don't know if they can do it better - or more ridiculously - than the original. You gotta love Walter Payton, Jim McMahon, Refrigerator Perry and the 80's. (OK. Maybe you don't.)

Hear the official FIGHT SONG!

Bear down, Chicago Bears,
Make every play clear the way to victory.
Bear down, Chicago Bears,
Put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.
We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation,
With your T-formation.
Bear down, Chicago Bears,
And let them know why you're wearing the crown.
You're the pride and joy of Illinois,
Chicago Bears, bear down.
- - - by Al Hoffman (Jerry Downs), 1941

Well, I was really pulling for your Bears, but in two weeks I hope they don't win. Sorry but I'm a Colts fan and have been watching Payton since the Vols days.

Woo hoo!! Daaaaa BEARS!!

Wish you could be here for the Super Bowl party. Scott's birthday is the same weekend, so we're gonna have lots of food and friends.

Dani.... Funny you like the Colts. See, I've lived in Kansas City, St. Louis, and Indianapolis (in that order) since college. So, I've closely followed the Chiefs, Rams and Colts. And, now that I am back in the St. Louis area, I hear about the Rams often once again. My loyalty has always stayed with the Bears.... but I must admit that I started loving the Colts when I was in Indy. And they are my second favorite team. So, I am especially excited about this match-up.

siren, your party sounds like fun. My brother's birthday was always around the Super Bowl, so sometimes we'd celebrate both at the same time. Mostly, I remember that Mom would usually make a huge pot of her chili, and we'd sit around stuffing ourselves with chili, oyster crackers, and lots of cheese. I wish I could have some this weekend. (Maybe I'll have to make some and have a little party with me, myself and I.)
