Brad Maynard kicks another punt (photo by AP). It's not everyday you get to feature a punter for the main photo of the NFC Championship. So there ya go, Brad.
I remember this feeling. It's hard to shake that sinking feeling that you get when you watch the Bears lose. It's never really compeitive and the team seems to take quiet joy out of embarrassing us in front of our friends. That's right, I take it personal.
But life moves on. My Mom has a birthday coming up. And I have a lot of cool projects in the hopper. So maybe I should thank the Bears for putting me out of my misery on Sunday, and not two weeks later.
I loved how Channel 9 handled the sports highlights. It was a big game, but there's college basketball and other sports to pay attention to, so let's move on. Let's be frank, fellow Bears fans: It was a blowout. It was that kind of Lovie Smith-style of "score is closer than the actual game is." But it was a good season with a lot of memorable moments.
Before I get to the random observations from Sunday's game, I really want to thank Caleb Hanie. Hanie came in and saved a game that we spent all week getting ready for. When he put on his helmet, the game was teetering on the edge of total Packer domination.
