I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. This holiday was easily one of the most memorable for me, as I got to spend it with some of my best friends and family. The holiday only became sweeter, like my sister’s homemade cherry pie, when my beloved Chicago Bears upset the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau on the night they retired Brett Favre’s

I know the Super Bowl was this week. I know DeflateGate dominated the headlines. But I’m not here to talk about those. After a week-and-a-half, it’s time to talk about watching the Packers-Seahawks NFC Championship game as a die-hard Packer fan.
