May I Have a Quick Moment

Yesteray Julie turned to me late in the 4th quarter and said “aren’t you excited? Why aren’t you excited?”. I didn’t know I looked that way. I was soaking it all in. I watched all the post game crap (nice use of Miami/Will Smith 17 times) and listened this morning to Mike North, but I really never felt joy.

I watched all the post game crap (nice use of Miami/Will Smith 17 times) and listened this morning to Mike North, but I really never felt joy. There were a couple tears after the final gun, but were they forced? See, as much as I joke around about it and make light of it, it sucks to be from New Orleans. I know, I know, it’s cliche and it was used as super cliche sports gab this past week, but New Orleans fans really used the Saints as a way to get their minds off of terrible things. It was a clever diversion. And they really believed that if they won, it would be a sign that everything is going to be all right. So what happens? Chicago spanks the shit out of them. Now what? “Good job Saints! Good job for a great season…..um….well, I guess I should focus on putting a roof on my house.” So as much as I love the Bears and will soak up the surreality of it all, I can’t help but think that the Rex Grossman led Chicago Bears did not win on Sunday. No, they were supposed to lose. They can’t even get that right. Here is my point – check out my high school friend’s blog. She is a great writer and presents the case far more eloquently. Here is her new post.

OK, if you stuck through my sincere post, can I ask who the eff Reggie Bush thinks he is? Seriously, who flips into the endzone? I saw on the post game clips a better look at the end of the Bush touchdown. You see Ogunleye come over about 4 seconds after the flip and point and just get in his face – they had to be broken up. Ogunleye was calling out his disrespect. That’s Chicago football. They all got your back.
