I guess I really shouldn’t be surprised. When you are a Bears fan, you must realize that disappointment is always right around the corner. (Sad, but true.)
The fact that the Bears were ‘this close’ to the Superbowl.
The fact that the loss was to the Packers.
The fact that our quarterback always mysteriously gets hurt when the stakes are high and he’s playing his worst.
The fact that Ryan had to see it all in person in the blistering cold.
But, I guess it doesn’t take away the fact that the Bears made it this far. Right?
And, Franco, Lola and I did all we could. We gave it a valiant effort with our Bears attire and attention to the game. I gave a lot of very good advice when someone was playing poorly (**cough, cough, Cutler**). If only the players would listen to the couch coach here in central Illinois.
Here’s a shot of the three of us. (We were still hopeful for a win at this point.)
The dogs were happy to be in Bears attire, too. They love the Bears.
Then, it took a turn for the worse.
“Why, mom?” Lola says. “Why must the Bears destroy all our hopes and dreams?”
Try explaining this to Lola. She doesn’t understand.
There’s always next year. Right Bear’s fans?
Who is your pick for the big game?
