Bears Bummer February 5, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in life.
I flew back from Chicago today. It was freezing: pumping gas with no gloves was dangerous. It is -8 F as I write this, comfortable back in my home in Seattle at a balmy 45 F. But Chicago didn’t seem to care much: it was all a joke — the Bears were in the superbowl. Almost every United Airlines gate in Chicago had a big Bear’s sticker slapped on it. About a quarter of the people were wearing Bear’s clothing. It looked like half the staff had left their uniforms home and replaced it with a Bears jersey. It was great.
I don’t really follow sports. Tomorrow it will be a little colder in Chicago. And for that I’m definitely sorry.
