Alright, I brought hats down to Florida to show support of my teams. That would be Northern Illinois, Notre Dame, Da Bears and Da Pack.
I had several NIU hats (not to mention tee shirts and sweat shirts), and one each for the others. I've just got to let others see who I'm backing. Plus, it's a great way to get into a discussion with other folk. Talking with other people is a highlight of any trip in my opinion.
On the way down, Dec. 30th, the Bears won, but a Packer loss in the final game of the season. That loss by the Pack also ended Bear hopes for the post season. So, we'll count that as a half loss.
Then, on Jan. 1st, Northern gave Florida State a good run for three quarters before getting blown out in the 4th. Why, I even had my "lucky" NIU hat that I had worn for all our victories this year and going back to last year's Go-Daddy Bowl. To no avail.
Then, Jan. 7th, Notre Dame forgot to show up for the NCAA Championship game against you-know-who. If someone had told me 40 years ago that I would ever be pulling for Notre Dame I'd have said they were crazy. Guess I have been living in the Midwest too long.
Then, this past Saturday, the Packers played a good game for the first half against the 49ers, but couldn't figure out how to stop their q-back and he ran all over them in the second half.
