    Well, having just seen a twitter post by an old classmate about something Mitt’s ex-sister-in-law posted on facebook.

    I just want to say thanks this election season for you all and the generally rational (and highly rational vs most of the world) political discussions we have here.

    Anyway I plan to flip between football and baseball.


  2. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:04 pm:

    Thanks, Rich.

    This should be a treat, a virtual “bar stool”.

    Should we get appetizers?

    What Cardinal would make a good Bear? and vice versa……. I like Matt Holliday as a Chicago Bear and I bet Peanut Tillman could roam the outfield pretty well.


  5. - Ted - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:15 pm:

    I’ve already voted. Made sure my family did, too. I think I’ll forgo the games AND the debate and go for SpongeBob this evening.


  6. - amalia - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:19 pm:

    keep it clean,….the rain washed away lots but left bad traffic behind.


  7. - Just Me - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:21 pm:

    I can’t recall an election season that I wanted to be over with so badly as this one, and we don’t have a statewide race this time around either.


  8. - Angry Chicagoan - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:22 pm:

    What happens to ratings when scheduling a presidential debate against Monday Night Football and then having a Game 7 baseball playoff suddenly fall in everyone’s lap?


  9. - Anonymoose - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:22 pm:

    Wow! All on the tube (flat screen)at roughly the exact same time…..

    When I get in the office in the morning, I may have to break out the company defibrillator after all this. Chest compressions tonight to unblock my aorta…Da Bears!


  10. - cover - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:24 pm:

    Wouldn’t it have been great to hear Bill Swerski say “Urlacher” on the Superfans sketch?

    “Urlacher against Matthew Stafford. Bears 42, Lions minus 5.”


  11. - Six Degrees of Separation - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:25 pm:

    Angry C…I think I’d wager the mortgage that the debate will lose would-be viewers to MNF and Game 7 of the NLCS. And that the sky will be either blue or gray tomorrow morning.


  12. - Liandro - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:27 pm:

    O-HO, you felt guilty and included the Cards, eh?


  13. - Arthur Andersen - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:30 pm:

    Willy, I’ve got the cannoli.


  14. - Draznnl - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:32 pm:

    Since I’m a Bears fan who’s rooting for the Giants tonight, am I safe commenting on San Fran’s win tonight or will I earn your eternal wrath Rich?


  15. - LevivotedforJudy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:33 pm:

    I may not make it to half-time, the 7th inning or the point where Romney and POTUS slap fight (whichever comes first). This is my kind of evening.


  16. - Wensicia - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:40 pm:

    ==I can’t recall an election season that I wanted to be over with so badly as this one,==

    Neither can I. The Bears will provide a welcome, and less bloodthirsty, diversion.


  17. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:49 pm:

    ===Willy, I’ve got the cannoli.===

    Excellent, AA!

    “Bar Keep, I would like a tall glass of milk ..uh, .. in a dirty glass!”


  18. - 1776 - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 5:57 pm:

    Predictions…

    The San Francisco Giants will score more runs than the Detroit Lions score points!! And they will both score more points than Obama and Romney combined who will circle without landing any serious blows.


  19. - Give Me A Break - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 6:29 pm:

    Wonder what Albert Pujols is doing tonight besides counting his money and telling his family and friends, “it was not about the money”.


  20. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 6:49 pm:

    ===Wonder what Albert Pujols is doing tonight besides counting his money and telling his family and friends, “it was not about the money”.===

    I was watching SportsCenter and thought that same thing. the Cardinals made the best decision for them as a ball club, and I now hope the fan base will think twice when questioning other moves …

    On the North Side, you overpay, underperform, and aploogize to no one … Alfonso Soriano, anyone?


  21. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 7:33 pm:

    Bears kickoff … I am guessing the Cards fans are getting edgy … 1-0 Giants, Top of 2… starting the “timeline” of events …


  22. - circularfiringsquad - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:02 pm:

    Bears up. Fox set for Trump wednesday presser. Cards down 2-0.at least getting runners on


  23. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:05 pm:

    7-0 Bears, 1st Quarter …2-0 Giants, top or 3rd … Debate begins…


  24. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:06 pm:

    Insta-poll … whose Tie is more “presidential”?

    BTW, if POTUS does something, does it automatically BECOME “presidential”?


  25. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:07 pm:

    Romney - Red tie

    Obama - Blue tie

    Conspiracy???


  26. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:14 pm:

    Detroit, another Personal Foul … a shocker … Romney “holding his own” … very “wonky” …


  27. - Wensicia - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:16 pm:

    10/zip Bears.


  28. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:17 pm:

    Schieffer - “Ok, fellas, who wants pie?”

    Bears 10, Lions, Zero … nearing the end of 1st Qtr …big trouble for STL … 5-0 Giants, no outs, man on 2nd … Bottom of 3rd … yikes!


  29. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:19 pm:

    Quick-Poll …

    Trump Presser - Important to Voters, or Imprtant to Trump?


  30. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:21 pm:

    Obama looks like he is facing an IRS Audit … tough to debate policy … when it’s your policy. Are you going to go against yourself?

    Romney seems comfortable, but I say that … does he have a cold?


  31. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:23 pm:

    Bases loaded again … still No outs …horrible play to try to get the force @ home … 6-0 Giants. Rule of thumb, if no play at home, “turn 2″ or take the easy play & get an out!


  32. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:26 pm:

    Yea! Pitcher Ks … one out

    Bears nned to catch passes that are “put where they need to be put.”

    Obama trying to go on the offensive ….


  33. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:33 pm:

    Bases loaded AGAIN! Two outs, bottom of 3rd … 7-0 Giants…

    Obama seesm angry, and probably aggrivated being on defensive so much …

    Bears deep in their own territory …


  34. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:39 pm:

    Cards finally get out of the inning .. thru 3, 7-0 Giants….

    Bears getting out of the deep hole the punt had them, over midfield …

    The “wonky” talk continues … most used phrase by both men …”which leads me to what I want to talk about, ‘X’ …”


  35. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:42 pm:

    So far … BEARS … that simple … Bears.


  36. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:43 pm:

    My Bad … I jinxed Robbie Gould!


  37. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:49 pm:

    On to Iran … getting pretty intense …we will see if this gets “less civil”

    Bears defense … Good … or Great?

    Looks like Giants BP (batting practice) … need a “quiet” inning to cool the Giant bats …


  38. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:52 pm:

    Suh is the Dirtiest Player … EVER!


  39. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:54 pm:

    Cutler is the toughest guy who gets the least respect. FACT!


  40. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:57 pm:

    Giants crusing … Bears breathe a bit easier with Cutler … Obama on sanctions and his administration’s toughness.

    2nd most use phrase …”Let me be clear” … no, please be foggy or cryptic, voters like that.


  41. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:00 pm:

    Cards go quiet in the 5th … Bottom of 5, Giants up.


  42. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:06 pm:

    Pakistan and Afghanistan … Romney begins ..


  43. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:08 pm:

    “The ruling on the field stands … Fumble”

    Quick-poll … Bears defense … Aggressive or Opportunistic?


  44. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:11 pm:

    Cards - top of 6 … need some hits, need a rally, start one with HBP.

    Bears - Half … 10-0. Cutler goes in locker room early, worried?

    Pakistan discussion continues on Philosophy …


  45. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:15 pm:

    Cards - 2 on, 1 out …”this visit to the Giants mound is brought to you by Capitol Fax …”


  46. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:16 pm:

    China trade and “China” jobs…


  47. - Cheswick - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:17 pm:

    For a minute there, I thought Schieffer was going to ask, “what would you do for a Klondike bar?”


  48. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:17 pm:

    “This Giants Pitching Change is brought to you by …”


  49. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:20 pm:

    This Just In …

    Bears still leading … and it’s still halftime.

    China trade war … “Econ” wonks are salivating


  50. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:23 pm:

    Quick-Poll … eTrade “Baby” cute … funny …”spooky”


  51. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:24 pm:

    Shouldn’t Ferris Bueller’s “Teacher”, no, not the real Ben Stein, but the character, shouldn’t that teacher be moderating the China Trade part of this debate?


  52. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:25 pm:

    Cards “end” the Inning, Giants start the bottom of 6 up 7-0.


  53. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:26 pm:

    Cutler huddles up the Bears … good sign. Cutler looks gimpy and tender … no, I am not commenting on his persona.


  54. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:28 pm:

    Quick-Poll … Whose is better ….the Giants “Beard”, or Cutler’s Beard …


  55. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:29 pm:

    Romney’s lecture … makes me squirm in my chair and I ain’t be lectured! Not a political comment, just the style … the lecturing made me squirm.


  56. - Arthur Andersen - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:32 pm:

    Rally Cards, Bear Down, Mitt Fumbles.

    The Valve?


  57. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:33 pm:

    Romney goes “promises” and visions of Romney Admin…


  58. - Draznnl - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:34 pm:

    Bears extend their lead over the Giants to 13-7


  59. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 9:36 pm:

  74. - amalia - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 10:13 pm:

    Brandon Marshall on the pregame was as he has been on Sunday nights on WMAQ, smart, measured, a pleasure to listen to. here’s hoping that keeps up. isn’t he from Vanderbilt? what’s with our offense….Vandy, three players(?), plus one from Tulane….the new silk stocking Bears.


  75. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 10:13 pm:

    “This pitching change is brought to you by …”

    Bears … clock keeps ticking …no change in score.


  76. - amalia - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 10:15 pm:

    Lions still getting shut out. fumble city.


  77. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 10:16 pm:

    “The Lions begin on their own 13 Yard Line …”

    “It’s Raining, it’s pouring ….” The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in SF … or something to that effect.

    amalia, glad you’re here.

    Your company eliminates the possibility that Willy (or his evil
    twin Wily) will post something that would get us both banned.

    Willy, I didn’t get food under the door. I got, “Dad, could you shove $20 under the door?” Love those teens.

    AA, you have more sense then both me and the evil twin Wily …

    “The play is being reviewed. The call in the field is an interception by Chicago”

    I am done … catching the train downtown tomorrow, early morning.

    Nite all.

    AA, and amalia, thanks for keeping ME from being banned … and that evil Wily too.

    How about that Charlie Tillman, Bears fans?

    Can you dig it?

    Shutout? In the NFL? Mr. Julius Peppers, I like the way you do your business.

    Hey, Scwhartz, you can’t score with two No. One picks like Stafford and Johnson?

    My momma could score twice with Calvin Johnson (that doesn’t sound right, but you know what I mean; seriously, my mom was cool).

    Charley Tillman is, and has been, the most underrated player in the NFL for quite some time.

    I have no idea why. The dude is a hammer at corner, and he would be like Troy P or Ed Reed at safety.

    Old School Dan Hampton, one of my favorite players of all time, really digs on Charley. Me, too.


  128. - Southside cubs/gop fan - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 11:17 pm:

    53 Chicagoans tried forcing the Detroit offense into bankruptcy, unfortunately they came up a little short. I wouldn’t say Detroit came Roaring back by any means though..


  129. - unclesam - Tuesday, Oct 23, 12 @ 12:03 am:

    Biggest take-away from debate — Obama admitting that he/his administration has “neglected our economy and education.”

    Biggest take-away from Bears game — Urlacher goal line strip and recovery.

    Game over!
