Too Early for Superbowl Hopes?
As long as the Bears are playing everyone else's second strings, we're going to go out on a limb and predict another parade in February!
- Chicago passed the time between Cubs games by watching the Bears backups beat the Dolphins reserves 27-10 in the exhibition opener for both teams. Not since 2008 in this city has preseason football distracted us from excitement over postseason baseball, so nobody's complaining. Not as many people are noticing the Bears either; at kickoff roughly 20,000 seats remained empty because of either rush-hour traffic or indifference, maybe both.
We're already making reservations for Santa Clara.
