Bear Down Chicago Bears!

The Chicago Bears have returned to the Super Bowl after a 21 year absence. [Tribune]

This will date me, but I was only 6+ years old when my Bears made it to Super Bowl XX in 1986 (I turned 7 in June that year), but I've always held an unquenchable passion for the team. They did the "Shuffle" then, and I hope they can win another title now.

I can't wait to see the Bears match up against the Colts for Super Bowl XLI.

From the 1941 fight song:

Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;
Bear down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.
We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T-formation.
Bear down, Chicago Bears, and let them know why you're wearing the crown.
You're the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears, bear down.

Hey, I am glad to see that there are a few of us Bear Fans up here in Cheese Land. It is great to see Da Bears in the Super Bowl again. I can’t believe it’s been 21 years already. I was a sophomore in high school the last time they were in the Super Bowl. Go Bears!!!!

LOL

I can't believe it, the bears went to the super bowl.

To bad they didn't do so hot but they came out super strong in the first couple of minutes.

I was rooting for the bears but at the end of the night I was like shit, I need a few more beers.
