2. That must have been an AMAZING experience
Take ANY Dallas game (only been to one, back at the Vet, but it was great) with all the great fan animosity

Add in a dash of T.O. gloating and predictions of a little victory dance

Shake up with a last minute 102-yard interception run with just minutes left in the game

Has to equal a wild night at the Linc!!!!

4. way too much hype
it was like it was the only game on this weekend.

And I don't care a bit about the T.O. vs. the Eagles story.

The Bears are 5-0, THAT I care about.

5. T.O. aside, it was a damned good football game
Dallas was in it until :32 seconds before the end of the game, when Sheppard intercepted a Bledsoe pass which would have tied the game for Dallas, and ran it out 102 yards.

The lead kept switching back and forth - S.O. and I don't normally watch football, and we were mesmerized - the situation kept changing and you couldn't know what would happen next. Just a great game.

Hey and thanks for mentioning the Bears -- not being a football fan, I don't know how the other teams are doing (like I do with baseball). I have a Chicago client who will definitely want to hear "how 'bout dose Bears?"

6. yeah, the Bears are doing great this year
for the first time I can remember, in addition to a great defense, and a decent running game, they actually have a passing game! And a good one!
