The Bears play the whiner-49ers on Sunday - a game that Shannon and I have, of course, bet on - Shannon being a 49ers fan and myself a Bears fan. When the Bears win I get an order of CHEESE FRIES at Portillos! If the 49ers win, Shannon will have to first pinpoint the alternate universe in which it happened. If he can successfully do so, I will have to take him to dinner at The Red Lion Pub and sing a Bears Loser song while dancing an animated Bears Loser dance.
Let's just say I haven't been practicing.
As if things didn't look bad ENOUGH for the 49ers, the Bears will be bringing themselves some (unnecessary, I'm sure!) extra mojo and will also be making the game even MORE watchable to OrangeMoJoJo by wearing:
THEIR ORANGE JERSEYS!!!
From Chalk Talk at ChicagoBears.com:
Ted: I believe that the Bears are going to wear their orange jerseys against the San Francisco 49ers for the second straight season Oct. 29 at Soldier Field. The highlight of last year's game was provided by Nathan Vasher, who set a record for the longest play in NFL history with a 108-yard TD return of a missed field in a 17-9 victory over the 49ers.
I've already decided what I want the next time Shannon and I bet on something and I win. He'd better choose his next bet very carefully!
Look on the bright side, Shannon! The Portillos we'll be going to is located just a few blocks away from the most wickedly awesome decorated haunted house I've ever seen! The fright will help dull your pain, though I'd think, being a 49ers fan and all, you'd be numb to this sort of thing by now....?
