The Packers beat the Bears 21-14. Unfortunately, it was about what I expected. Reckon if you expect your team to finish 6-10 or 7-9 in the regular season, and they end up in the conference championship, you can't be all that disappointed.
Bad thing is that the Bears have a lot of holes to be filled, and finishing near the top means their first draft pick will be toward the bottom of the list. Since GM Jerry Angelo doesn't have a good track record in player drafts, not much good will probably come of the 2011 NFL draft for the Bears.
Ok, then. Pitchers and catchers report in six weeks for baseball spring training. The Cubs look all set to have another mediocre baseball season in 2011.
Blackhawks look bad. Not sold on the University of Illinois basketball team. The Bulls don't do much for me. Looks like a long year sportswise.
Anyone got a team I can pull for? Anyone got a team that needs the hex put on?
