In honor of the Chicago Bears’ historic playoff game this weekend against their long-time rivals the Green Bay Packers, I’d like to recall what Arthur Daley of the New York Times said in December of 1941 before the Bears took on the New York Giants in the NFL Championship game:

What the Monsters of the Midway figure to do to the New Yorkers is enough to make women weep and strong men shudder

The Bears won the game 37-9 (and just the week before had vanquished the Packers at Wrigley Field, 33-14).

Calling all Cheeseheads: prepare to weep and shudder on Sunday! (link)
