Bears and their fans got what they deserved and what they did to our fans.

Hooray! The Colts won, and Muhammad and Gould outscored Reggie Wayne, which means I won $100 in our playoff fantasy league.

Somebody tell Adam Vinatieri to stop winning Super Bowls. It's getting sort of ridiculous at this point. I wonder how Belichick feels about that decision tonight.

Now that Peyton Manning has won a Super Bowl and there's no more "Can he win the big one?" talk to make, is the world going to end? That's surely one of the signs of the apocalypse, right? Then again, I guess we could just switch the talk to "Is he the greatest QB of all time?"

Also, why is it that seemingly nobody (okay, maybe nobody is a bit harsh) remembers that "Super Bowl" is two words? Probably my biggest pet peeve in all of sports.

Probably my favorite Super Bowl ever. I've waited since the 7th game of the season, when it looked like the Bears were the only serious contender from the NFC, for Grossman to fail miserably in front of 50 million people. He didn't disappoint

I was missing Madden and Michaels immediately. The game just highlighted (for me) the fact that NBC football is sooooo better than CBS football.
And is it just me, or do Fox and NBC turn up the crowd noise? CBS games always seem to be so quiet. It adds to the dullness.

I was watching the OTA digital feed in 5.1 and the crowd seemed pretty loud to me coming out of the left and right surround sound speakers.

I'd just like to thank Tony Dungy for eschewing the figgie with a couple of minutes to go, since it was 29-17 and I had my name on a "Colts 2, Bears 7"-square for $150.00.

I feel your pain, JJD. I also had Colts 2-Bears 7 and was already counting my money when the Colts suddenly decided to go for it on 4th down. Did you at least get a 3rd quarter payout for the 22-17 score at the time? It was a measly $20 for me, but at least I broke even on the night.

I was pissed about the lack of a field goal at the end. I had the 2-7 box, and would have won 2 quarters.

Ron Turner was the MVP of that game. His complete inability to adjust for Grossman's incompetence was the killer for the Bears.

If the Cowboys want Lovie Smith, I'm inclined to say a draft pick would get him would it were that I were running the Bears. His endless well of loyalty to Grossman proved to have only failure at the bottom of it.

I was going to mention Prince and his ability to wear hi heels and run around a wet stage without slipping. Granted, he did slow things down, to assure his footing, but DAMN, he was on fire.
Ad-libbing the crowd with the "standing here in the raid" bit was great. And, the shot from the blimp of a darkened stadium where all you saw was the glow of the Prince Symbol was a great, great visual.

I won a nickel on the game, myself. A nice elderly couple who comes into the store are huge Bears fans, and Mr. Grabowski tried to bet me $5 that his Bears would win. But I went down to a nickel instead, 'cuz anything more, in my superstitious little mind, is bad luck.

That nickel is gonna be taped up right next to my championship poster when I get it. GO COLTS!

I was at the game and we got SOAKED...even with ponchos.
I kept saying "It's not supposed to rain at the Super Bowl!" mudh like Tom Hanks "There's no crying in baseball".
I guess I can say I was part of Prince's halftime show, waving my little flashlight thingy during "Purple Rain". I wore my Brady jersey even though the Pats weren't there. I told people that going to the big game had become a habit in New England. Burger King must have had lots of leftover XBox games, because we got some in our take-home seat cushions.
We went to the NFL Experience Saturday and Sunday and I was very impressed. Lots of cool stuff to see and do-mostly geared toward kids though.
I wound up rooting for the AFC Colts, just because there were so many Bears fans there it felt like a Chicago home game.
