It is really time to bench Brady Poppinga. Not because his politics have led him to support Barack Obama, but because he is supporting Obama despite the fact that Obama stopped in Green Bay yesterday and declared himself a diehard Chicago Bears fan. And Poppinga was there to witness it.
Said Obama, acknowledging Poppinga’s presence: “It is hard for a Packer to support a Bears fan…But you would not want some guy to come up here and say he was a Packers fan, when he’s a Bears fan … . You gotta stick with your team, even when they don’t break .500, even when they don’t make the playoffs, even when they make you tear your hair out.”
The crowd booed Obama when he said he was a Bears fan. But you have to give him props for choosing not to fake it, as some ass-clown did a few years back. Of course, he still won Wisconsin.
The Bears still suck, but not as much as the Vikings.
