Tee Shirts Will Be Shipped Wednesday

After a storm-related delay the tee shirts have been masterfully produced and will be shipped Wednesday to all who placed order. Because we accept some responsibility for the delay, we’ll be shipping them Priority Mail so you should receive the shirt(s) by no later than Monday, December 24th.

Urlacher Talking His Way Out of Town?

Here are some quotes from the face of the franchise, courtesy of USA Today:

“Two of the people I don’t care about: fans or media,” Urlacher said. “They can say what they want to about our head coach, about our players. It does bother me. They don’t know what they’re talking about, obviously

“The boos were really loud, which is always nice,” said Urlacher.

“The only team in our division that gets booed at home is us. … It’s unbelievable to me.”

First off, Urlacher is wrong. The fans in Detroit booed loudly and wore bags on their heads for the entirety of the Matt Millen era. So to say Bears fans are the only ones in division to boo is misguided. Vikings fans don’t boo because there are 11 of them and they don’t really care that much. Packers fans don’t boo because they consistently WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS.

As for what the media and fans know or don’t know, here’s what I think: we know enough. We know the team was 7-1. We know the team is 1-5 since. And we know that should not have happened. Lovie Smith has a good record as Bears head coach but this has not been a case of the Bears losing to better teams. This reason requires blame.

Hitler Goes to Chicago Bears Christmas Party?

Mel Brooks said it best. The only way he could get back at Hitler, in his own mind, was to ridicule him. I didn’t know what to make of this video when I clicked the link. Stick with it. It is silly and pretty great.
