LA need to recoup against Seattle next week, before the mighty clash with Kansas the week before their bye (which they really will need, being so banged up at the moment).
Yeah, it was a great game. The Patriots/Green Bay game was pretty good - too late for you guys.
Yesterday, I took the kids' ostensible grandmother out to lunch with the kids at a place called Windy City Pizza. As you can tell by the place's name, it has become kind of a west coast bastion for Bears fans. When we got there, it was the 4th quarter, and the Bears had nailed it down. Tons of folks in Bears' jerseys.
One thing it reminded me of: Midwest and East Coast sports fans are so much more dedicated than west coast fans. The south too, for college football anyway. When I would travel for work by myself, I would also head to a sports bar for dinner - conversations with sports fans in the midwest and east coast are so much better than out here. All my friends and I are big sports fans, so I don't notice it that much, but those sections of the country have much less casual fans like the west coast.
I was bringing four drinks back to the table for family and some guy, who was coming my way, did kind of a shimmy in front of me like he was going to knock me over. I told him "What's up with that? Don't make me do an Urlacher on you." It made him laugh, but I got my point across.
