I just picked my 13 year old son up from a friend's house, where he was watching the Chicago Bears lose an NFL playoff game. He is really bummed out.
The entire way home I heard about poor play from the Bears' cornerback, missed calls by inept refs, and the unfortunate interception near the end of the game. And then he told me the worst part: "Now the Bears are going to be rated low in Madden 2007." "Why does that matter so much?" I asked. "Now when I want to be the Bears they won't win very often."
