It's good to see the Packers and Bears game matter this year. It's even better to see it matter early in the year. Add on top of all that goodness that the game is on MNF. It's just a refreshing thing, and it allows me to get into this game in a way that many of our meetings have not had over the past few years.
Not too long ago there was a post here about who our main rival is and there was some discussion between the Vikings and the Bears. My thought is simple though, in the end it's Da Bears. There is no other. This rivalry defines both of our teams. Halas bailed out the Packers when it looked like we were going to go bankrupt. The bitterness and respect between Lambeau and Halas. The ownership of Farve for so many years. The thuggishness of the Forrest Gregg squads. These are things that no other rivalry in sports can match. And you know what? This week we can enjoy a nice hype around it and the game will matter to boot!
I CAN'T WAIT!!
