Bears Fan Shows Up to Gloat

September 29, 2010 12:53 PM

Less than 24 hours after their embarrassing defeat of the Green Bay Packers, the nation's First Chicago Bears Fan travelled to Madison to gloat over the victory. I tried to head it off, suggesting when I met him at the airport that he confine his football-related remarks to the Wisconsin Badgers trouncing of lowly Austin Peay last Saturday. But he's a Bears fan, and so he couldn't help himself.

The guy from Illinois made other remarks. You might enjoy reading the attached story from the front page of today's New York Times, which puts Madison and the UW in a pretty nice national spotlight: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/29/us/29land.html?_r=1&adxnnl=1&ref=todayspaper&adxnnlx=1285772529-bkBwFWzSI1koftnjD4ooxw.
