    Had they played The Who there, that woudl have been the greatest pre-game moment of all-time. Or at least since Barret Robbins went AWOL.

    The commercialism on this pre-game show is stupefying (sp?). The freaking All-Iron team was freaking underwritten by freaking Geico.com. Goodness. SEE NORBIT!! EAT PIZZA HUT!!!

    Or, it could go this way.

    Bears 3, Colts 3 after 1st quarter
    Bears 9, Colts 9 after 2nd quarter
    Bears 20, Colts 17 after 3rd quarter
    Bears 35, Colts 26 final score.

    Claws wins SB pool, Rex Grossman wins only SB title of his career.

    I want to get this in writing: Bears 41, Colts 14.

    As I expressed on another thread, this idea that the Bears suck is the biggest fallacy going in American sports right now. They kicked the living shit out of a great many opponents this season. Essentially, when Grossman didn't play shitty, the Bears not only beat teams, they pummelled them. Indy, meanwhile, won a bunch of games where they hung on by the skin of their teeth. They lost to Houston. They let Jacksonville blast them out of the stadium - late in the regular season.

    This is going to be a Bears blowout, and it's going to be the kind that will send prognosticators scrambling to their calculations, scratching their heads and saying, "Where the hell did I go wrong? How could I not see this coming?"

    P.S. The Colts coverage teams are horrible. Either Hester takes one to the house, or the Bears benefit field position-wise to a game-changing degree by Indy avoiding him like the plague.

    No matter which way I figure this out, I see a Chicago massacre.

    Colts 27, Bears 13. Colts will take away the deep ball (Grossman's strength) and force him to nickle-and-dime them to death. He'll commit a couple of turnovers as a result, and the Manning will take just enough advantage.

    It won't be a blowout, but the Colts will eventually win fairly comfortably.

    Your sarcasm font is busted.

    It's what they get for starting it at like Midnight...

    As long as this game is a field goal contest, I'm happy.
    And that's the only area of the Lions that Matt Millen hasn't screwed up -- yet

    No sarcasm intended. The Bears are the best team in the NFL. And it's not close.

    Rather than choosing to watch that, I chose to go out and reorganize the stuff in my rented storage unit. That was much more interesting.

    The more I think about this, the more I think the Bears have a good shot. Why?

    Because 9 years or so ago, 1) no AFC team was supposed to have a chance in the Super Bowl and 2) John Elway wasn't supposed to be good/gutsy/tough enough to win the Super Bowl. He certainly wasn't supposed to be able to lead a piss-poor AFC team over Brett Favre! (yes, the punctuation went with the name at the time) and the mighty, vaunted, stupendous Packers.

    We all know how that turned out.

    Is it sad that I think the best part of the pregame show so far was David Caruso?

    This post is useless without ...

    1. You putting on your sunglasses before you say it.
    2. You stand up very straight and put your hands on your hips, neatly pushing the bottom edges of your jacket out near your pockets.
    3. Roger Daltrey screaming "YEEEEEEEEAAAH!" as an airboat roars by immediately after you finish speaking.


    And congrats on 8K.
