Roast Duck For Dinner?

Wonderduck has thrown down the gauntlet. It’s the “Big C” vs. the fleur-de-lis, and our front pages as the prize!

Hey, Ubu! Yeah, you Saints fan, I’m talkin’ to you!

You’ve got to drag your gold-clad arses up to Chicago next week so the Bears can kick ‘em ’round Soldier Field. “Who Dat?” The BEARS, dat’s who!***

Wanna put the front page of your blog up as a bet? When my Bears win, you put a big ol’ Bears logo as the top post for a few days. If the Ain’ts somehow pull a miracle out of their socks, I’ll put a Frenchy-style fleur-de-lis up here on The Pond.

Whaddya say? Gonna stand by your team?

***(The Duck Sez: I’m not really as confident as I sound. I see the two teams as being basically even, more or less, with a slight advantage going to the Bears because of home-field and weather.)

Well, actually, I think it’s better than a slight edge to Chicago, but paradoxically, I was pulling for them to win over Seattle, since A) Historically, the Saints and Bears have played great, entertaining games against each other, going back to Walter Peyton’s days, and B) We couldn’t let Steven’s team get any further in the playoffs, now could we? ;)

Oh wait, he’s in Portland–wrong state. Oh well, it’s still the closest NFL team to him, so it’s his by default. :-P

    That Orange-and-Blue “C” is gonna look SO nice on here…

  2. For whatever it’s worth, as far as I’m concerned the only sport worth watching is baseball, and I don’t even watch that very often (nor am I a fan of any particular team). I don’t remember how many years it’s been since I last watched a football game, but it’s been since high school that I actually found it very interesting (and was a fan of the LA Rams — remember them?).

    I’m a huge baseball fan (go Cubs go!), always have been. There’s nothing I like more than going about my daily/nightly activities with the radio on, listening to the WGN/Cubs announce team of Pat Hughes and Ron Santo.

    I’m not that much of a football fan… but I AM a Bears fan, and the Aint’s are goin’ down next Sunday.

    Hmm… Maybe I should say something pertinent being that I’ve lived in south-central Louisiana for the past few decades… Yeah, I grew up as a Saints fan. Not fun times.

    But since I’ve started ignoring the Saints, they seem to start doing well. I start paying attention to them, and they suck. So, I’ll be a good fan of the Saints and continue ignoring them. Seem to work well, and less pain for them, their fans, and me. ;)

    Enh, do what everyone else did back in the day. Be a fan, but wear a paper sack over your face. Ah, memories. I remember back then, when Flash Gordon hit the theaters just after the Jets did something no other football team managed to do in 1979: lose to the Saints in their 1-15 season.

    Opening night at the theater. Flash introduces himself loudly (to the professor or Ming? I forget.) “Flash Gordon, Quarterback, New York JETS!” The (Louisiana) movie audience falls out laughing so hard, the next few lines are inaudible.

    Good times. Bad team, but good times.

    Yep, Steven. Cubs fan, I’m a duck that bleeds blue. I fully expect to see the Cubs win the World Series sometime this century.
