I've been pretty much ignoring all the SuperBowl hysteria going on in Chicago. Sports radio beats the topic to death with the 24/7 coverage; fair weather fans are coming out of the woodwork to jump on the bandwagon; and, it seems that every business in the Chicago area is desperately trying to any way they can to associate themselves with the Bears so they can cash in on the excitement.
However, I do get a kick out of putting Bears helmets on the two venerable lions in front of the Art Institute.
Also, I got this e-mail from the Lyric Opera of Chicago today. They made a short video of one of their singers doing a rendition of the Bears' fight song. Check it out!
