And God said, Let the Bears Bring Forth . . . And It Was So.

Once again, God has reached down from heaven and blessed his chosen team, the Chicago Bears. In what can only be described as a Biblical contest between Good (Bears) and Evil (Packers), the NFC championship is set for next Sunday.

The Sea Hawks chili was a hit (though quite hot) and the Bloody Marys followed freely at the Turley house.

One of my best friends is a Packer’s fan and witnessed the event. We are now set for a historic moment — the ultimate blood feud between the Bears and Packers.

  1. Mike,
    Ouch! The Jets have to beat the Steelers yet as the Bears have to beat the Packers before either makes it to the Super Bowl. I will take one game at a time. However, what happened the last time the Jets played da Bears?

  2. I’ve always liked the Bears because of Halas, Ditka, Luckman, etc.
    Currently I like Jay Cutler because of the disrespect the NFL establishment has laid on him. However, come the Super Bowl I think the Bears hopes will be dashed by the Jets, the team I’ve rooted for since their inception as the NY Titans.

  3. Blouise….it is ok to say go Packers or …….hey ya…so how did the Tuesday before the Wednesday go?

  4. Dear Professor Turley:

    I value you opinion on numerous matters and I consider you one of the voices of sanity and caution (along with Glenn Greenwald) in a world that becomes ever more constrained by the encroachment of tyranny. But on this matter, I must strongly disagree because…the Bears…Still…Suck:

  5. eniobob,

    I hear ya … remember I’m from Cleveland … I suspect we’re even more disrespected than you Jersey folk … we should form a club.

    Be grateful Mayor Bloomberg isn’t in Jersey … you got enough trouble. Here we have a bunch of crooks in the local party that are getting all kinds of bad press … a bunch of “dees, dat, and dem” guys who belong in (wait for it) … Chicago! (aha … Cleveland gets to disrespect somebody)

  6. Blouise:

    What reallly gets me is both the Giants and Jets play their games at the new stadium here and for the most part all the players coaches etc,live here in Jersey you would swear that they play and reside in New York,for whenever either team is playing here they always show the New York skyline.

    I see Mayor Bloomberg of NYC is betting the mayor of Pittsburgh some trival thing on the game.Never seen him at a game or even mention any kind of sports interest even the when baseball season is on Yankees/Mets etc.

    BTW,using a netbook to post this,differnt to say the least.

    Elaine,

    The Patriots ruined my streak … they were awful today”

    Or were my J-E-T-S,jets,jets that good? :=)

    ====================================================

    Ok, Ok … your Jets did manage to take advantage of all the Patriot’s mistakes and yes, they were very good … thank the good lord they could back up their coach’s mouth! Congrats … they earned the win. 🙂

  8. I grew-up with relatives who lived in Green Bay. My uncle, a Willy Lomanesque traveling salesman could not stop running his mouth about the Packers. The only saving grace was that it kept him from talking about Wendell Wilkie (this was the 1970s, btw). Needless to say, when it comes to that great question of the day, Bears or Packers, the Monsters of the Midway get my vote, esp. after having lived in Chicago early in my career.

  10. “Once again, God has reached down from heaven and blessed his chosen team, the Chicago Bears.”

    So the Bears needed God to help them beat the lowly Seahawks?

  11. Raff-
    It is written;
    The walls of Soldier Field will echo with the wailing and gnashing of Illinois teeth on Sunday next.
    The prophet- Curly Lambeau. Bless His Name. Amen.

  12. HenMan,
    The Cheeseheads will not prevail in the home of the Mighty Bears. We beat the Packers the last time we faced them in the playoffs…..in 1941! So history is also on our side.

  13. Prof. T-

    I love you like a brother, but you have the forces of good and evil precisely reversed. Thus, the mighty Wisconsin Bratwurst must prevail over the pathetic, vegetable slathered Chicago Hot Dog. And, of course, the manly Green Bay Packers must prevail over the flatland dwelling, Wisconsin vacationing, toll paying, anemic Chicago Bears. Vince Lombardi smiles down from above and all is well with the universe. George Halas grits his teeth and mutters, “Wade to Ditka, Wade to Ditka…..”

    The End.

  14. Swarthmore,
    Great video of an exciting Bears team on and off the field!
    Blouise,
    I will give you a pass for this game only! Go Bears!

  15. Man, I had no idea; football really is a blood sport in places like Turleyville, U.S. of A. Bloody Mary’s, Blood Feuds, then the Packers likely sackin’ quarter-back packs of fizzled, grizzled Chi Bear blood sausage away in the Green Bay *freezer* during the melee/rout grinder.

    Sounds like Sarah Palin was right & prophetic after all about *blood liable*; cause they surely is liable to be blood, shed aplenty—of some sort or the other—by fans and players alike.

    May the best blood *brothers* win…
