We were at my Aunt Kathy's, so I didn't watch the game as closely as if I was at a home, but I still got to enjoy the Bears victory over the Green Bay Packers today.
It was a house full of Bears fans, so the game was on my Aunt's big screen. But with eating and moving about I never really got into the flow of the game. I did, however, see some of the key plays as they happened: the botched 10-yard punt by the Packers, Garrett Wolfe's 33-yard run that set up a Adrian Peterson TD, the blocked punt returned for a touchdown, and Brian Urlacher's interception that he returned 85-yards for a touchdown.
Sure, the Bears were pretty much playing only for pride, but the fact that the game had no substantial playoff implication didn't matter to me. It was the Bears and the Packers, outside, in sub-zero wind chills with snow blowing everywhere. It was what good old fashioned NFC football is suppose to be about. And the Bears won.
