We all knew it was going to happen, but it still had to be seen to be believed. The New Orleans Saints walked into Soldier Field and proceeded to walk all over the helpless Chicago Bears. For a franchise that had never even made it to the Super Bowl, this coronation was long overdue. Still grappling with the after effects of Hurricane Katrina, Louisiana needed these Saints, hell, the whole country outside of Chicago needed this team. The imaginative play calling of rookie, and coach of the year, head coach Sean Payton was inspired, and matched only by the unparrelled offensive talent of Drew Brees, Reggie Bush, Deuce McCallister and the bevy of talented wide recievers. Brees proved why he is the best quarterback in the league, and Reggie Bush solidified why he should have been the number one overall pick as he proved the Bears defense to be slow and unathletic. But after all, this is what the experts all predicted from the start.
WAIT A SECOND. . . .That’s not what happened at all. God dammit, I know I shouldn’t write these damn things beforehand. Read More
I should probably start out by saying that while a rabid Bears fan, I for one was never talking that 16-0 noise. Of course I’ve wondered aloud about how cool it would be to stop hearing stories about some Dolphin’s team with Bob Griese at quarterback and even hypothesized about it being possible if they could just make it out of Gillette Stadium alive. Luckily, the Dolphins ended any of that silly discussion that was even infecting the major media. On the flip side of that, I realize the Bears lost to the Dolphins, but suddenly they are terrible? Come on, even great teams lose games they probably shouldn’t, so expecting merely a good Bears team to not stumble is ridiculous. So what are we left with after their victory in the Meadowlands on Sunday night? Read More

Dear Football Fans,
I realize that many of you might not know me too well, so in conjunction with the absolute ass whipping the Bears and I just laid on the Seattle Seahawks I thought I would write to say hello. Now, I can’t really be mad at any of you for not being familiar with me since it has been awhile since I’ve played more than a couple of games in a season. I just want to go on the record and say that whatever people may think, I AM NOT MARK PRIOR. Nothing against the man, but I do pee standing up. Glad I cleared that up, so now click the read more link to find out what you need to know about me and the rest of Monsters of the Midway.
It appears this video is not working, but, youtube it, it's hilarious.
Jim Leyland argues, pauses for God Bless America and then resumes. The man is awesome. Kind of makes me want to stop telling these Tigers fans that they’re going to lose in the first round…
…until I remember that Ryan’s favorite fantasy baseball player told me today that I just enjoy crushing dreams. I guess you can call it that, but dead arms and a sinking ship usually handle that end of the business for me.
