roaring start for da bears
While the Chicago White Sox
flounder in their efforts to snatch the wild card entry
in the play-off's and attempt to retain their 'world series' title, another famous sporting franchise in the windy city are looking like champions elect in their opening games of the season.
Okay, I say that a bit tongue in cheek, but the Chicago Bears
have swept aside both opponents in their first two games of the new NFL season and people around me are getting buoyed by two explosive performances at the old enemy Green Bay
last week and at home to Detroit Lions
The Bears should stroll to the NFC North title but will come across plenty better teams in the play-off's namely the NY Giants
and the Seattle Seahawks
. Interestingly to a novice like me both early season favourites Miami Dolphins
and Carolina Panthers
lost their first two games.
Meanwhile the White Sox have a massive week ahead of them
starting tonight at home to the Detroit Tigers
, just a game ahead of Minnesota
, before playing a 4-game series also at home to lowly Seattle
. The champions finish the 162-game season with a series against fellow rivals Minnesota. It is to coin an expression 'all in their own hands' and I will be at US Cellular Field on Wednesday to catch up with their progress.
