News? What news? Bears-Packers is all the news I need
Top story: Who are we kidding, right? As much as there is "serious" news out there this week, everyone and their brother (literally) is talking up the NFC Championship game. The Bears v Packers is taking center stage. And not just with die-hard football fans either. Facebook is crawling with curiosity over Bears/Packers and the local media is doing a good job of giving this game context. It's history. Two franchises that embody their home towns and the people that live in those towns.
Weather: It's about to get cold. Real cold.
Sports: See above. Sorry Derrick, sorry Patrick Kane. Sorry 85 Bears anniversary. This week is all about the Bears.
