The Fog Bowl – 20 years later

I thought I’d take little field trip while breaking down the disappointing 2008 Bears and go back to the good old days.  Old Doc Brown is at it again.  The Delorean takes us back 20 years ago today to the Bears-Eagles playoff game, known simply as The Fog Bowl.  I remember trying to watch this game and being so frustrated because I didn’t know what was happening.  I heard that the  flying saucer shape of the new Soldier Field was designed to prevent this from happening in the future.  Time will tell.

Check out this video from YouTube with some of the highlights.

The good news is the Bears defeated the Eagles and former coach Buddy Ryan 20-12 to go on to the NFC Championship Game.  The bad news is they got pasted 28-3 by the San Francisco 49ers.   Another year of disappointment.  I guess it’s true what they say, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

BEAR DOWN!!!
