A salute to Bears fans stationed abroad

While you’re at home/the bar/friend’s pad/in-law’s place with your pregame beer and brat firmly in hand, take a minute to salute our military men and women overseas. Especially these Bears fans currently stationed in Afghanistan (click photo to view larger version).

There are thousands more like them across the globe who’ll be watching Sunday’s game, hoping the Bears can deliver a historic win that plays out like a 3-hour video postcard from home.

To all our military men and women at home and overseas (Bears fans or not), we salute you. Bear Down!

    Good morning. In less than 5 hours, Fans from here will join others from around the Country, and we will be launching the largest Fan expression in the history of Football… Football, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences any more with Green Bay. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the 23rd of January, and we will once again be fighting for the NFC championship. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to XLV, to exist and should we win the day, the 23rd of January will no longer be known as NFC Championship Day , but as the day when Chicago declared in one voice, ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on, we’re going to survive.’ Today we celebrate George Halas Trophy Day!!!!
