Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;
Bear down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.
We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T-formation.
Bear down, Chicago Bears, and let them know why you're wearing the crown.
You're the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears, bear down.
There was a good crowd at Chad's Bears Chat
site last week, so might as well stick with it if you wish to discuss the game.
- In baseball news, the Sun-Times is saying
that Cliff Floyd
should be a Cub on a one year deal now that Alfonso Soriano
seems willing to play center field and the team won't need to waste a roster spot on a veteran stop gap until Felix Pie
is ready. Why this is any different than if Jacque Jones
was willing to play center field is beyond me though.
- Apparently after a bit of booing of Larry Rothschild at the morning Q&A, both Jim Hendry and Lou Piniella were quick to defend Rotschild including this little bit from Piniella about injuries:
"You can't blame a pitching coach for that," he said. "You can't blame a strength coach for that. You can blame a manager if he allows a guy to go out there and throw 100, 145 pitches consistently, and all of a sudden he breaks down, and that won't happen.
Is that a manager taking responsibility for his team? I didn't know that was possible.
