Chicago Bears for the WIN

**UPDATE:: The Bears lost :(**


I'm not a big sports fan...Okay, rewind:: The better phrase to describe me is I don't like sports at all.

It's not that they aren't interesting in their own right, but I just have no will to learn, watch, or follow them.

That's just me though.

However, being from Illinois, there are a few sports related things that have been instilled in me no matter how much I dislike sporting miscellaneous. Some of which are::

*Hunting and fishing ARE sports.
*Hunting and fishing are MY sports.
*Socks or Cubs--Cubs
*Die-hard Bears fan
*Die-hard Packers nemesis

As you can tell, this post is regarding the last two-Since we live close to the Wisconsin border, we're surrounded by many Packers fans and it gets pretty rivaled, especially when both teams happen to play together.

If you're a football fan or follower, you know the Bears and the Packers are playing today, right now, for a spot in the Superbowl.

THE SUPERBOWL!

We haven't played in the Superbowl since the 1980's, so this is a BIG game-So big in fact, that many local businesses aside from the bars, are closing for the day to catch the game.

What is the whole point of this post if I don't even like sports?

Well, I still gotta support my team!

GO BEARS!

Thanks for the comment. I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn for the hat and scarf. The color is called Prairie -- http://cache.lionbrand.com/patternDemo/swatchDisplay.html?s=790-335

I haven't made a purse yet, but I think I'd like to give it a try so I have something creative to carry things to church.

Booo! :(
I am with you...not a big sports fan. I have tried to watch football, but my mind just wanders. But, I REALLY did want the Bears to win!

I totally share you disinterest for sports, never wanted to learn what's the fuss is all about.

Soccer and baseball games of my kids are already enough lol

I'm not a big sports fan either, but am glad the Packers made it. We'll be having a super bowl party I'm sure :)
