Bear down, pregnant woman

Thought I’d put a spin on the day’s rally cry.

I just watched a “mooks a-poppin’” video on the news of fat guys in blue and orange yelling “Baersss!” (spelled to reflect the charmingly raw Chicago dialect). Why does every bit of fan footage have to zero in on the guys who look like the “Sportsfans” on SNL? Is that really the face of Chicago? Furthermore, “Ditka, sah-sedge, Baerss”–is that really the voice of Chicago? Why do the city’s sports fans voluntarily reduce themselves to a stereotype?

Screw it. I’m on my way to Soldier Field to grill some brats and drink some Old Styles in the parking lot. Go Baerrs. We will destroy the Saints today, my friend.
