Many many moons ago, the great psychic Nostrildameooze predicted the birth of a being which would cause many catastrophic events. She said his (or her) reign of chaos would be tyrannical but clumsy and comical..
Nostrildameooze could not pin point what year he (or she) would be born but my research has uncovered the shocking truth. He (and yes, it's a HE) walks among us. Or, among people in his country anyway cuz I'm way over on the other side of Lake Michigan..
I decided to do more research and find out what horrible repercussions his presence has brought to our world or more importantly, my little place in it..
I am now going to take you back to February 4, 2007.
I have to warn you, this event was very traumatizing for us Chicagoans. Specifically to my brother Dan who made us swear never to speak of this day ever again (I'm sorry Dan)..
You see, on that day, the Chicago Bears went to the Superbowl. On that day we held our hearts in our right hand and our joy in our left. Uh... except for me, the only thing in my left hand was a scrumptious slice of cheese pizza.
Anyway, after so many years of remembering what the Bears did in 85/86. After years of Ditka being on a pedestal, our City had another chance to prove to the country that Chicago kicks ass.
Sadly, this was not to be. The Bears lost that day. Nobody knew what happened. What had gone wrong? The stars were aligned, everybody had showered, we had our chips and dip ready for snacking. What went wrong? There were no answers.
We can now blame this heart breaking loss to that person born oh SO MANY YEARS AGO on this day.
Thanks allot Brian! Dan might want to have word with you!
HAPPY 78th BIRTHDAY BRIAN!!
Chicago does kick ass!
