The Bears beat the Lions 26-24 this afternoon, after leading 20-10 at the half. They will make the playoffs if- as I expect- the Mould and Gold beat the Men in Braids later on.
Having lost twice to the Mouldy Bananas and having to depend on them to beat Minnesota this afternoon, he only way for the Bears to salvage their honor would be to knock Green Bay out of the playoffs. Even winning the Super Bowl would not be enough otherwise. And frankly, today's second half does not fill me with optimism.
But for what it's worth... BEAR DOWN!
