Sunday Football

I had a chance to sit and watch an entire football game today!! Our local games are always the Bears, and that was definitely worth watching today!! There aren't very many stadiums where the weather can determine how the game is played, but Soldier Field is one, and today the wind was amazing. Of course, we had the same winds here, though not quite as strong. Vasher's 108 yard run back was awesome. Great team play. Watching Urlacher take charge and give him directions, while still keeping up and then passing him to make the final block was to watch a true team player. He remembered that the goal was to get Vasher into the end zone, and it was obvious that he was going to make that happen. If there is a sportscaster in the US that does not show that tonight on the evening news, they should be fired. That single play showed the power of the wind, smart play, a record setting play, and smart football on the part of the Bears. It single-handedly turned the game around, making it a 7-3 game rather than a 6-0 game at halftime. Overall, the game was the perfect example of why the NFC North is called the "Black and Blue" division.
