Let’s Play Name That Bear!

Let’s play name that Bear this morning. Yeah, there’s Urlacher. And Briggs behind him. But who is the Bear in front of Urlacher? Come on die hard fans, try to guess without googling. Other stories after the jump? Fighting Colts fans; Bill Zwecker’s awesome line; and changing teen driving laws.

DID YOU WATCH THE SCREEN ACTORS AWARDS LAST NIGHT?

I did and every time the orchestra played out they did the first couple beats to “Bear Down Chicago Bears”. Maybe I have it on the brain, but did anyone else notice it?

Some Colts writer took worthless slams at the Bears and the Bears fans in his column this weekend (Gapers Block). Now come on, calling us drunk and disorderly is pretty tame. Making fun of the old “dead people vote” is also pretty lame. There’s gotta be a angst ridden blogger in Indy who has venom in his blood for the Bears? Come on, egg us on! Let’s get a super slam fest going in time for the super bowl. I’ll start. Indianapolis has Broodripple. It’s the minor league version of Wrigleyville or Rush Street. Shit, our lame ass meathead spots are coooler than yours. Now that’s pretty lame.

DALEY and SCHILLER – AM I DREAMING?

So yesterday I saw a press conference at a CAPS rally featuring 46th Ward Alderman Helen Schiller and her special guest Mayor Richard M. Daley. What’s fishy here? Schiller used to be the Mayor’s outspoken rival and the only dissenter in City Hall. Now she has him at the CAPS rally? If you aren’t familiar with city politics, this is known as the good ole “I might lose so my politics and convictions are out the window” scam. It’s like if Brett Favre came to finish his career on the Bears. Oh, wait – you aren’t into sports either? It’s like if the guitar player from Social Distortion came and jammed with Dinosaur Jr. Oh, wait – you aren’t into 90’s alterna-rock? It’s if your Aunt came and lived with your other Aunt. Good enough?

MARRY ME BILL ZWECKER

In Bill Zwecker’s review of the movie “Smokin Aces” with Jeremy Piven, he says (about the director) “Carnahan, who last wowed us with “Narc” (2002) — has done it again.” Best line ever man. Did you see Narc? I didn’t even know there was a movie called Narc. Let’s play who was in it – James Woods and Jamie Foxx in….Narc.

A NEW WAY TO WATCH TV

Instead of investing yourself into a full one hour show like Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, or Northern Exposure 2, just scan the dial around 9:53ish and get their narrative sum-ups. Every show has a narrator who says “we search the world over to find someone special, but maybe we just needed to go home (shot of Anne Hecht playing with dog). Then quickly flip to the next station. It works.

FINALLY – A NOTE ABOUT TEEN DRIVING

I got 3 tickets and rear-ended someone when I was a teen driver. I have never since. Maybe there’s something to Jesse White’s plan to change the law. I know teens will scream about their rights, but as my Dad used to say “you ain’t got no rights til your 18. Deal with it”. At the time? Infuriating. Now? Great parenting.

AND FINALLY FINALLY

Happy Birthday Jackie!!!!!!!!!!!
