Where were you 35 years ago today? Super Bowl XX and our Bears were there to meet (and eat) the New England Patriots. A game for the ages and what we thought was the start of a dynasty. Sadly that part didn’t come through but The Bears did for this afternoon. I was a Bear season ticket holder and had been at every game at Soldier Field including the two playoff games against the Giants and the Rams. Truly an amazing season and now here we were in The Super Bowl. I was on the air that afternoon on The Loop (watching while I rocked) and then at 7 when I got off I headed to My Cheers Twin Anchors Ribs to watch the rest of the game. That feeling of complete domination and total satifaction is one I will never forget. The Bears had done that to teams all year and now here they were doing to The Patriots in The Super Bowl. We were the champs.
Remember how the scoring went:
