Before I head off to Jimmy's for the game this afternoon, I'll be saying a little prayer:
The Bears PrayerGo Bears!
Our Papa, who art a Bear,
Hallowed be thy fame,
Thy championship come,
Thy play be run, at home as it is away,
Give us this day our Sunday win,
And forgive us our turnovers,
Though we pounce on those who turnover against us,
And lead us not into fourth and long,
But deliver us from Rodgers.
In the name of Ditka, Butkis, & the Holy Payton.
As it was in 1985 so it shall be in 2011,
Reign without end. BEARDOWN!!"
Update: The first quarter sucked. The second quarter crawled. The third quarter dragged. The fourth quarter was exciting. Much as it pains me to say it, the Packers wanted it more. (And if Lovie's contract is renewed, I'll be certain that he's got incriminating pictures of the McCaskey family stashed somewhere safe. Why in the world didn't he make Hanie his second string quarterback, instead of third?)
