Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears: Here’s what you didn’t know you missed


I really hate these close games between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears.

I mean having to sit through such intensity, wondering what fluke play could turn the game one way or the other.

It is enough to drive a Packers fan insane!

Next year when the Packers and Bears play, this six touchdown lead at halftime just is not going to be enough. Come on, guys suck it up and get it together!

With that being said, there may have been a few things that were missed during the latest installment of the greatest NFL rivalry.

First and foremost, I predicted a victory not based on the team’s performance but based solely on the power of the tutu. To date, I have been at Lambeau Field for every home game and I was at Soldier Field for the Packers game there as well.

With each game I have worn my trusty green and gold tutu, my owner’s jersey and my Pabst Blue Ribbon crocheted hat. And each of those games have ended with a victory.

So, to date I am 5-0.

I am only 89 victories behind Coach Mike McCarthy.

Speaking of the coach, happy belated birthday.

Not a bad week for gifts; a contract extension and a trouncing of the Bears.

From the “Did You Know Department.”

Aaron Rodgers became just the second NFL player to throw for six touchdowns in one half.  The other player was Daryle Lamonica, who accomplished the feat in 1969, while playing for the Oakland Raiders against the Buffalo Bills.

On the flip-side, Jay Cuter is now 0-4 in games where he throws an interception this season.

Finally, Wayne Larrivee made probably the earliest “Dagger” call when the Packers went up 35-0.

So enough about the game.

What did you all miss from outside the stadium. I would have to say the best costume of the night belonged to the young lady I saw wearing the Packers bib overalls.

Why is this the best costume of the night?

Well, the answer is simple – I would love to see how long it is going to take before she is home sick.

While the majority of us who utilized our common sense dressed for the weather, she instead chose the tropical route and was wearing a bikini top.  I am guessing that alcohol was a factor in her lack of ability to comprehend that this was a night game with lower than average temps.

Speaking of alcohol, I would like to give a shout out to the intoxicated Bears fan who was playing a ring toss game on the public sidewalk.

It seems I invaded his game playing space and his best reaction was to body check me into a brick wall and call me a bunch of names.

Fortunately, I have had more positive interactions than negative with Bears fans and I will assume he was just distraught over the fact that his team had just gotten their backsides handed to them.

I will say that from what I saw, 99.9 percent of the Bears fans were classy about the loss and were able to laugh about it and enjoy in the rivalry.

So hats off to those fans who understand what this game is all about.

In case anyone was worried though, I did not have any reports of alien abductions after the game or conspiracy theories about the lopsided victory.

I have, however, been able to substantiate using new math that if you have seven pencils, three pancakes, and an elephant lives in your garage, the Bears really are as bad as they showed Sunday night.
