I hate losing but I hate the Bears even more!


Well I have a buddy at work, Mark who is like 6'3'', 320lbs and happens to be a huge Bears fan. Everybody at work knows this and he makes sure you know! So practically, nobody likes the Bears at work. I love to tease him. When his cubbies lose, he doesn't show up at work to avoid the flak.

 

So when I left for work, the Lions are leading 17-10 and I'm feeling good. I get to work and stumble upon Mark and I ask him what's the score? Damn was I pissed when he tells me we're losing 45-21. Now I get his expert friggin advice: we have no corners, no linebackers, yada, yada, yada....

 

The game ended and as usual, I have to put my foot in my mouth. So I say:'' The Lions are putting 40 on the Bears when we play them''. He quickly turns around: ''Say what?'' So I say: ''You heard me, we may lose the game but we're putting 40 on you guys''. He answers: ''No way, not with our defense, you wanna back it up?'' It's time for me to walk away but being the arrogant little SOB that I am,  I look at him and say: ''Yeah, how about  10?''  Well in no time he retorts ''You're on and you know what? If you do put 40, I'll double your wager.

 

With an injured QB and RB, I figure I have to rely on the defense to score a few points for me to win my bet. I know we can take care of Dick Sukbutt's ( or is it Butkus, whatever) team. Stafford, Hill, Best, Johnson, Suh, Van Den Bosch never quit so I know the Lions are on the right track. Let's kick Chicago's butt!!!!!!!!!!!!
