Iranian nightmare wrecking our sleep
Rambo the Afghan - Jamal Udin - Someone You Should Know

Are You Ready for some Football?!!

I'm proving Uncle Jimbo right with this post about the Superbowl (see his post about Iran below).

Did you know that Elvis was a Bears' Fan?  Here's proof.  Somebody get him a jelly donut!


[I can hear my critics now (as they usually criticize us for taking political stances on a military blog) in feigned shock,  'Blackfive is not a military blog.  It's a sports blog!']

The following is a picture of my godson in his class here in Chicago.  I think Brett Favre is probably one of the best football players in history (he just played for the wrong team).  My brother and (now) his son, love the Pack.  Big lug that I am, I still love them, anyway.


I will probably wear my Bears number 4 jersey in honor of our kickass punter, Brad Maynard.  (Punter you say?!)

Anyway, Some Soldier's Mom, also a huge Bears' fanatic, sends along the above Elvis clip and the Bear's Prayer after the jump (from Pappa Bear Hallas) and some other goodies for the Bears' fans out there.  After the Jump...


And this little story about the oppositions QB:

Peyton Manning, after living a full life, died.

When he got to heaven, God was showing him around.

They came to a modest little house with a faded Colts flag in the window.

"This house is yours for eternity, Peyton," said God. "This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here."

Peyton felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a 3-story mansion with a blue and orange sidewalk, a 50-foot tall flagpole with an enormous Bears logo flag, and in every window, a Chicago Bears towel.

Peyton looked at God and said, "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have question. I was an all-pro QB, I hold many NFL records, and I even went to the Hall of Fame."

God said, "So what's your point, Peyton?"

"Well, why does Rex Grossman get a better house than me?"

God chuckled, and said: "Peyton, that's not Rex's house, it's mine."
