What gets you through the off-season?

Training camp is still two months away. With no play-off hockey to tide me over until then, it’s starting to be a very long off-season. We had the draft party a month ago which helped but we had no first or second round pick.

Thank goodness the weekend after next is the Bears 100th Year Celebration weekend! It will be Friday night, ALL DAY Saturday, and Sunday morning of nothing but BEARS talk!!!

Many of the past Bears, including my all-time favorite player, Gary Fencik, as well as many of the current players, will be there. Looking so forward to all the seminars.

I’m excited for the season to start not only to celebrate 100 years of Bears football but to see if we can continue and improve upon last season’s 12-4 record.

What’s getting you through the off-season?

July 25, 2016 -The Tail of Two Passions – Part One

As I mentioned in my previous blogs, I have two passions. Football and animals. I love both for similar yet different reasons. They each serve a different purpose, yet the same purpose. My love of football is for fun and entertainment. It fulfills my need for competition. My need to win. My need for victory. Sports can take me to the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. When my teams win, a part of me wins. When they lose, I lose. As a die hard fan, and I think I speak for many, I feel a part of the team. I often, when talking about the team, refer to them as “my” team and say “we.”  It’s like I had something to do with them winning. Well, I think I did. I mean all that cheering and yelling. I had to make a difference in the outcome right? I mean that’s why I go to the game. That’s why I watch it on TV. It matters. Right?
