Great game! Pity the Patriots couldn't hold onto their lead on the Colts, still this Superbowl promises to be quite awesome. Go Bears!

yes...a rematch (and win) of january 28th, 1985 would've been perfecto!!!! :D

i couldn't believe they made it. we were at the gym watching the game and working out. when they won, we looked at some of the other folks at the gym in a stunned fashion and said, "the bears are going to the SUPERBOWL!!!!!" it's like we couldn't believe it. we're so used to losing. ;)

My mum was working for a company (in London) set up by a guy from Boston at the time. Most of the people in the office were from Boston, and were all crowded around a TV watching the game live (I'm guessing Channel 4 were broadcasting the game live, although late night TV only barely existed back then). Unsurprisingly, they were all rather dejected at work the following day, to say the least. I was just starting to get into American Football at the time, and was a Bears fan. I decided not to mention that fact :-) I drifted away from the sport in the 90s, but I remember the combination of McMahon and Payton was pretty impressive at the time.

Anyway, this year, I took a couple of punts at the start of the season. I backed the Bears at 33:1 and the Colts at 8.2:1. I sold out of my positions on both teams at the start of the post-season for a profit, but not as much of a profit as I'd have now had I held onto them). Ho hum. Hindsight is always 20:20.

Oh, and go Bears!

Sometimes my roommate calls her cat "Smoochy Bear." It always freaks me out and I check over my shoulder like "what? Where?!?"
