Something just feels right when I see that. They should play once a year on either Sunday or Monday night.
You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling towards you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
Being a Bears fan, I just assume NOT play the Packers on Monday night. We don't do well on Monday night as it is, and add the fact that it is against the Packers and you can almost go ahead and put that one in the lost column.
Maybe our Monday night performances will improve this year.
I would love to get tickets to that game. Hopefully there will be some available to us poor college students. I heard, unfortunately, that there was only like one weekend where the Illini and Bears both played at home. Of course I am too lazy to check their schedules to see if that's the case. I have season tickets to the Illini, hopefully there will be single-game tix left for the Bears.

Packers OWN Da Bears, especially on Monday night. (Although not as strongly as during the Holmgren Era.)
Y'know, it's kinda funny...being in the Bears' locker room at Lambeau after last year's game up here (being in the media rules, BTW), Chicago players pretty much blamed their hometown media for repeated attempts to ruin team chemistry.
Uh, guys...I was there, and we photographers moved up and down the field more than Jim Miller did.
And for you non-cheeseheads...wait 'till you see the new Lambeau Field. The outside looks more like Camden Yards now than the old bowl of green sheet aluminum you're used to...weird.
Go Pack Go!
