Cool Bears Pic – Day 33 – Superbowl!

Featured Flickr Phins Picture

This is a little something different, every now and then I’m going to feature a random photograph from Flickr.com that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a great way to highlight other people’s creativity, whether that is photography, painting, drawing, or some other kind of flickr-applicable art.

I just think it might be a fun way to be a unique Chicago Bears Blog

Hope you fans enjoy it!

Day 33 – Superbowl!

Continuing another great American tradition – 240 pound men piling into each other with 300 pounds of force, running at full speed and crashing helmets – that’s right, FOOTBALL!

When I first got to Chicago, I had no idea why people watched football. I grew up in the tradition where football was a game where 22 grown men chased an inflated bladder around the field (I’m a Liverpool Fan). And when I was first introduced to a game where 250 pound men threw themselves at each other with such fervor, I was certain the guy who invented football was a maniac with no sense of personal safety.

I remember the Bears were in the Superbowl 2 years ago, and I remember celebrating the Giants win with my NY roommate. And I truly enjoyed the inane commercials. That’s when I realised, the Superbowl was a great American tradition – you could get pissed drunk and enjoy watching grown men (in the case of LBs, FAT grown men) bump into each other.

So here’s my tribute to Superbowl XLIII and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Incidentally, I won the Superbowl in Madden NFL 2009 with the Colts and Peyton Manning.

P.S. I counted 23878646 Canon 1Ds with L lenses and plenty of backup 1Ds with 70-200 f/2.8 L lenses after the game ended. That was the best part. (Along with the 100 yard interception and the Fitzgerald 64 yard touchdown reception.

Go Bears!
