mullin17, it seems that you missed something here, like the same post, scroll up!! Truth does always hurt!

Let me relate a story to you about the politeness of Bears fans. A few years back when the Packers were on the way to the Super Bowl or I should say half time of the play off game. We were in Nassau, enjoying the Packers halftime lead. Many of our group were cheering and yes being somewhat obnoxious. I was in the hotel gift shop purchasing snacks for the second half when a rather loud pair from our little party happened by cheering and chanting. One lady in the gift shop turned to another and asked if she knew what that was all about. Her response was something to the effect oh those are JUST borish, obnoxious Wisconsinites, disgusting Packer people. I turned to this "lovely" woman and asked are you from Illinois and she said yes Chicago, how did you know, my response was by your borish, disgusting, rudeness. My did her face turn red. Her friend restrained a chuckle. I made my purchase and wished them a good day as I left. My point, none! Have a good day!

Brian,
Even up it is then. Are you trying to tell me that Old Scout is one of those folks that would go to the Golden Corral @ 3:55 PM so that he could pay the lunch price & then eat dinner when the steaks come out at 4:00 PM? Or just that he's a "hearty eater"?

I shouldn't talk. When I quit smoking I let food be my crutch with the naive idea that Once the cravings died, I'd work on losing what pounds I gains. Sixty pounds later & seven years after I quit the cigarettes, I'm still packing that excess 60 around.

Go bears? I want a free steak sandwich!!! (Please notice that throughout my posts on this topic that the bears are referred to with a lower case b, while the Packers are capitalized.)
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Hey Mullin! Come on up to Tomahawk when Brian buys me that steak sandwich! Some GOOD NATURED Packers/bears trash talking always goes great with a beer! (How many QB's have the bears started since Favre took over the job in GB??)

My point was that Old Scout, like me, enjoys a good buffet and could put a serious dent in the smorgasbord without much effort. Heck, the guy is big enough to twist the **** off of a grizzly bear. I could probably take him but he's older and wilier than me and would probably just leave me face down in my platter of chicken wings.
My two favorite teams are the Packers and whoever is playing the Pandas. Go Colts!

When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

No Deb, you missed a point as well. There are always going to be rude, obnoxious fans for every team. My "beef" is with packernews.com. Why is a packers Publication printing that story?

mullin17, no I didn't miss the point. You missed an idenitcal post or rather you felt the need to post the same entire story that had been previously posted. That's what I was pointing out, as well as your whining. As far as my post, I had no point. I'm well aware of Bear publications that do the same thing. I have a brother-in-law that is very quick on seeing that we get any Packer bashing from Chicagoland. At Christmas he was mentioning something from a Chicago paper ripping on Favre. Same differance. Go Colts, but I'm afraid it will be the Bears!

Brian,
So what was the bet again? Wasn't it a "roller dog" at a local gas station??

See ya at the Pine Tree. I'm looking forward to sampling one of those steak sandwiches (Even though the Colts win means I have to buy two of them.)

After all he's been through, I was happy to see Coach Dungy carried on to the field as the Champ.

Don`t feel bad mullin 17 ,
:( Your Bears put on an entertaining, if not comical, :D Super Bowl. Imagine how close the game could have been if you had a quarterback! ;)

Just let me know when you are up here next, Jeff, and we'll get together. Heck, I'd have settled for a pickled turkey gizzard or a blind robin at Kahn's Bar.

Brian,
I'm ignorant. What's a "Blind Robin"?

Subject: CHICAGO BEARS

A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Chicago Bears fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they are Bears fans too. Not really knowing what a Bears fan was, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, their hands fly into the air.

There is, however, one exception. Susie has not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different.

"Because I'm not a Bears fan" she reports.

"Then," asks the teacher, "what are you?"

"I'm a Indinapolis colts fan" boasts the little girl. The teacher asks Susie why she is a Colts fan.

"Well, my Dad and Mom are Colts fans, so I'm a Colts fan too" she responds.

"That's no reason," the teacher says. "What if your mom was a moron, and your dad was an idiot. What would you be then?"
'
'

Susie smiles and says, "Then I'd be a Chicago Bears fan." ;)

Jeff - a 'Blind Robin' is a typical Northwoods bar snack food item. Think of an embalmed herring containing a lot of salt and a smell that only the truly adventurous (or a similarly pickled) individual would consume without having a gun held on them.

Brian,
Your choice. Reply to private message to give me a contact phone # or e-mail address so we can set up a date for me paying off Da Bet, or reply on the board. I am looking forward to paying my debt. Old Scout plans to be the witness.

Too bad I can't post pictures or I would bring a camera and post the evidence. :D
The National Institutes of Health has just released the results of a $200 million research study completed under a grant to Johns Hopkins.
The new study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.

That all depends on when it is. I'd enjoy meeting some of the people here (and putting faces with some of the comments!).

Mullet17 has been awful quiet this year. Hmmm... I wonder why? In any case, while the Bears/Vikings go at it tonight on Monday Night Football, I am going to be a big Bear fan. C'mon Pandas, beat those 'Queens!

It wasn't the Bears that made ou look foolish. You took care of that all by yourselves. :D HAHA. Let's repeat that next season. Maybe the Bears will actually have a quarterback by then!
