I’m finding it’s a bit harder than normal for me to get pumped up for this Bears game knowing that the Packers are already out of it – and knowing that a loss would help the Bears while a win would help the Vikings. In particular, hoping for a win knowing the Vikes would be helped just sucks. This is like having to sit between an enormously fat guy on a plane who flabs into your space and breathes louder than the plane’s engine and some ‘eccentric lady’ (she refers to herself this way) who watches you come on the plane, waiting for you, for anyone, so that she can talk for the whole flight about many, many stupid things.
Anyway, read here from the Chicago Tribune, Bear DE Adewale Ogunleye:
Hate, hate relationship: Defensive end Adewale Ogunleye made it a point to express his hatred toward the Packers, Monday’s opponent.
“I think you [have to hate them] because if you don’t, the fans won’t like you,” he said. “So I hate the Packers. All the Bears fans know I hate the Packers. It’s a big rivalry. Actually, losing the way we did up there (37-3 on Nov. 16) makes it even more of a heated battle. … I can’t wait. I really, really want to try to settle the score.”
Ok, now I’m pumped – let’s embarrass them again and bring an ugly conclusion to their season.
