You Win, Chicago Fan

posted by on February 2 at 10:05 AM

I hated the Bears all year, and what little interest I held in this year’s Super Bowl was based on nothing more than wanting to watch the Colts demolish them.

But now that it’s out Peyton Manning is a goddamn Bush fan (not to mention Colts coach Tony Dungy’s support of the homo-hatin’ Indiana Family Institute), I can’t help but root for Chicago this Sunday.

So, uh, yeah: Go Bears!

I'm in the minority in affirming, as an unbiased, analytical observer, that the Bears are definitely going to beat the shit out of the Colts this Sunday.

I agree, a bear can beat the shit out of a young horse anyday!

Thanks for giving me a reason to root for someone, GO BEARS!

I only watch the SuperBowl for the commercials.

Baby-fetus head is going to get abused, which will finally give some real entertainment value to the 85 commercials we'll be seeing him in this weekend.

The Bears are getting 7pts from Vegas? Bet the condo.

Matt Hasselbeck is another NFL player who contributed to Republican campaigns. I forget where a saw the list of NFL player contributions but it was heavily weighted on the GOP.

But Brian Urlacher donating 51,000 to a Democratic congressman--he's my new hero. I hope Urlacher rips Manning's ass off.

news flash, people - 99.9% of all professional athletes are Republicans. And probably about 75% of them are fundamentalist christians...

My thanks to one and all. Post forthcoming, full of Bears eating ponies.

Professional athlete political donations. Manning and Urlacher are both on the list.

Nice list, Hernandez. Lots of surprises.

It appears, though, that if the guy's in baseball, NASCAR or golf, he's a Republican.

This disappoints me as someone who really enjoys the sport of football, but the entire NFL establishment, including front offices, media, coaches, players and our own Shaun Alexander, are a bunch of fundamentalist, homo-hatin' right wing kooks. Urlacher is a notable exception (as is the late, great Walter Payton). GO BEARS.

Brad, if the Bears can keep Manning from patiently prying their defense open like he did to the very unwilling-to-lose Patriots, that'll be the biggest thing.

How did Webster's dad give 101%?

Tony dungy is a hypocrite...I mean he is in a sport where a large man thrusts his ball into an ENDZONE and then proceeds to do a dance and pat the butt of the tightend who then pats his butt back. and then tony dungee himself pats his butt as well. Then they all go into the locker room and shower together. Ask yourself, how many butts of large men has tony dungee patted? 100? Does this sound like a proper christian to you. for shame.

yeah...the NFL should really take a good luck at itself and realize that by hating gays they are total hypocrites. I mean football has BEARS, TIGHT ENDS, butt patting, endzones, bad dancing, skin tight spandex pants, large men piling on top of each other trying to grab balls. Every single football terminology is gay. So just fucking accept the fact that american football is the gayest sport in the world and move on
