Allison,
Thanks for the link. Went out to fill up on 7-11’s new Dark Mountain Roast Coffee (ZINGZING) and picked up a copy of the REAL Chicago Newspaper the Sun-Times.
The back page has a deliberately infuriating page-wide picture of some schmoe with a yellow ‘fro wig, GB sunglasses and yellow tigerstripe face paint.

Also mentioned within is the book Mudbaths and Bloodbaths: The Inside Story of the Bears-Packers Rivalry by Gary D’Amato and Cliff Christl. I borrowed it from the library about 2 years ago or so. Have to say it might be one of the best sports books I ever read. Even if you are not a Bears or Packers fan, this book excels in giving even the most unfamiliar reader an idea of the ethics and history involving the game. Being the fact these two teams have faced each other since the dawn of the sport, many ties and references to the evolution of the game are interwoven within the details of the rivalry. A must-read.

Tom
