A bit more on my Bears ...


Read the sports pages this morning. The Vikings just got an extension from the NFL until sometime this afternoon (their game's at 7pm) to sell out the Metrodome and avoid a TV black-out in the Minneapolis/St.Paul market. WTF?

Had the standings been reversed, and the Bears had won the division, Solider Field would have sold out within 1-2 hours of tickets going on sale!

This adds just another level of "bitterness" over the way things ended up. The Vikings fans don't deserve a home playoff game if they need to be begged by the team to avoid the black-out!
