Who do you have for the Super Bowl?

Ted Phillips is at it again.

Tanks Fer Nuttin’

Our good friend Dan from Fire Ron Turner received a letter from Ted Phillips the other day. You can see that in the link above for the full story. It turns out, Ted is telling all of the fans that he and the Bears are sorry for sucking again. But no worries says Teddy. The Bears are going to do their best by raising ticket prices 10 fucking percent this year. You’re telling me that my $200 seats are going to cost $220 this year? These fuckers keep raising prices for a franchise that continues to lose double-digit games every season? Oh, that’s just fucking awesome.

PATHETIC.

Fun facts

The Super Bowl is now set with the Denver Broncos going up against the Carolina Panthers. And with these two teams in the final game of the season, I will point out some ways it’s tied to decisions that the Bears have made over the course of the last decade.

Lovie Smith fires Ron Rivera for his friend, Bob Babich. Babich goes on to suck for the Bears and since, they have been in a realm of irrelevancy. Rivera, on the other hand, goes to Carolina, builds a team over the course of several years and is now, in the Super Bowl.

Lovie and offensive dumbass, Mike Martz, decide that Greg Olsen is no longer needed on their team. The Bears trade Olsen to the Panthers. Olsen now has a chance to win a Super Bowl.

And last, but not least, what do these two teams have in common?

Both have fired John Fox, who currently coaches the Chicago Bears. And both of his replacements are in this game.

I only pray that history is on our side as fans of the Bears.

Championship Sunday is upon us in the NFL. And yet, it’s another one without the Bears in it. Who do you have winning?

Also, for you WRASSLIN’ fans, it’s the Royal Rumble as well that night. The Road To Wrestlemania officially begins. It will be a busy Sunday night with that, football and the Blackhawks all going on at the same time.

This is the most bi-polar Bulls team I ever seen in my life.

As it usually goes when both teams are playing, I am always switching back and forth between the Bulls and Blackhawks. It drives me nuts at times because I tend to miss something when I switch. Last night, I was at it again.

The Bulls, seemingly playing well after back-to-back pants-shitting performances, did it again with their third straight loss. Zero defense, shitty free throw shooting and too many damn turnovers. Sound familiar?

Once again, let me say that Hoiberg is still a million times better than ThomASS. The Bulls still have a better chance of winning games now than they did with the previous moron. These horseshit performances are on the players.

It isn’t fucking hard to guard somebody. I feel like I am talking about the Bears with that sentence but this goes for the Bulls as well.

The Bulls win six in a row and are chasing the Cavaliers for first place and all of a sudden, they lose three in a row in shitty fashion. How the fuck does this keep happening? Most of their wins look great but all of their losses look shitty. It’s one thing for them to lose a game and it’s another to lose it without even looking like they’re trying.

Oh and that dumbass Joakim Noah is back. Maybe he has something to do with it? This current three-game losing streak started when this moron came back. Bobby Portis can’t see the court again because of it and he’s a million times better.

Because of the lack of the defense the entire season, I am already exhausted from this team 37 games into it. Is Mel Tucker employed in Chicago again? I don’t fucking get it. Everybody on the other team seems to be open under the basket and at the top of the key. It’s driving me fucking insane.

The times they are a changin’…or, are they?

Jay Cutler will have a new quarterback guru next year. The Chicago Bears will have a new offensive coordinator.

Robbie Gould has been released.

Congratulations Mr. Gase.

I’ll leave the analysis to those better qualified (Fro and the rest of youse). Thank you, my frendts.

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.

Watch, another horrible franchise will hire him. My money is on the Eagles. Those fans deserve him.

Bears win NFC North Cellar Dweller Championship: Lions 24 Bears 20

What a game. Dick face throws three interceptions. The defense can’t stop anybody. And the difference between last year’s team and this year’s? One more win. That’s all that matters, right? A win is a win and a loss is a loss in the NFL. The Bears were one game better than last year.

This post will be dedicated to one of the few Chicago Bear players that has actually been likable over the course of the last decade: Matt Forte.

Drafted in 2008, he was an instant fan favorite. Frequent dumbass, Cedric Benson kept getting arrested. The Bears mercifully released him in Spring of that year, which lead to Forte getting drafted and becoming the starter.

This guy never bitched. And he had many opportunities to do so because of the franchise he was playing for. No matter what, he worked hard and was the best player on this team every time he put the uniform on. There wasn’t a bad thing to say about him.

Watching him play for the Bears has been one of the few good things to see over these years. With Jeremy Langford and Ka’Deem Carey doing very well in his absence earlier in the year, it appears that the Forte will be out the door, barring a miracle. I will understand why he may not be back. It’s a young man’s league and at Forte’s age, the salary cap is a factor and with two running backs who are much younger on the roster, it makes sense.

We should all thank Matt Forte for the memories if he is indeed, gone.

Happy WOOOOO Year!

Indeed, it has been so far. What a day. I know this may sound insane, but meeting some of my favorite wrestlers in my life have been some of the coolest moments in my life. I had the honor of meeting one of the greatest of all time in Ric Flair on Saturday in LaSalle. I didn’t get more than a minute to talk to him, but I let him knew that I never imagined what it would be like to get this opportunity.

And in April, Bret Hart comes to town. Unbelievable.

Final open thread of 2015

Well, folks, it’s another year in the books for us here. Some of us celebrated another Stanley Cup by the Blackhawks. We also congratulated each other on making it another year on this website that was started in 2008. I just cannot believe that as a group, it’s been nearly ten years of people coming and going with some sticking around. It just sucks that only a few of us have actually met each other.

That’s why for 2016, I say let’s make it a goal for all of us to meet in the city for a night of food and a game. That means our friends from Wisconsin as well as some of you guys who are in other states. If it’s possible, we should make it happen.

Happy New Year everybody.
