The End of Sport

I will not watch the Super Bowl this year. I will not watch any sport for weeks. There is no beating as bad as the one that took place today. You can go no lower as a fan of the Bears. This is worse than losing the Super Bowl. There is no high equal to this. This is as bad as it gets when you follow a team.

If you can't beat your arch rival of 100 years at home to get to the Super Bowl, you should not be the head coach. Lovie Smith, the coach of the Bears, said on day one, in his very first press conference, that the only thing that mattered to him was beating the Packers. Stepping down as head coach is not enough. Seppuku in front of the Picasso sculpture in Daley Plaza is the only honorable thing in my eyes.

Brian Urlacher had this to say a few moments ago on local TV when asked how he thought the Packers might do in the Super Bowl, "I hope they get pounded." I agree, but I won't be watching. The sport is dead to me until August, at the very least...

I will be a Bear's fan until I die. Tonight marks the absolute low.
