The Bears are in the Super Bowl. For the second time in what over 20 years. The last time they were in it they won. This is something I was looking forward to for a while but I was cautious. When it comes to Chicago sports teams you ought to be.
Anyway this is great news. I'm less amazed though than when the White Sox made it into the World Series. Still the Bears are going into the Super Bowl and I'm going to eagerly anticipate watching the Super Bowl in a few weeks.

UPDATE: The Bears will take on the Colts. I saw a very good game tonight between the Colts and the Patriots on CBS in Nap-Town (Indianapolis). Final score 38-34, Colts.
I should note the final score from the earlier Bears game against the Saints in Chicago. 39-14, Bears.
