My father raised me to enjoy watching football – no sons. However, this football season has been such a disappointment for me. The Bears are not worth the effort of pressing the television ON button, there have been more points scored against the Illini this year than any other Big Ten team. The only upside for me is that I don’t have to try to watch football and build baskets at the same time.
That said, there are still die-hard Bears fans out there. Chicago seems to breed die-hard fans. Maybe it has something to do with the weather – we have to be able to take a beating to live here! In any event we have a great new Tailgater basket – pictured above. And for the saner football fans, who perhaps are rooting for a winning team, this is available in all team colors.
PS. My gorilla blog is now on HuffPost, here. If you liked it, a like there will help it reach more folks.
PPS. I was so excited about being on HuffPost that I was bouncing in my seat all day like a 4 year old waiting for birthday cake.
