Sunday 10/9 10:00AM – Game 5: Chicago Bears @ Minnesota Vikings

From Ronnie:

Hello Bears Fans!

That was a frustrating game to watch, we coulda and shoulda won! The play selection cost us that game, they always say you have to establish the run game to open up the pass game but it works both ways. We can’t be so predictable if we are going to beat our division rival, Minnesota Vikings, this Sunday. They are coming off a win in London after a double-doink missed game tying field goal against the Saints. The Vikings have a solid run game, like the Giants, with Delvin Cook at running back, so our Defense can’t give up as many yards as they did last week. They also have a decent pass game with Cousins at QB. Our O-line is going to need to protect Fields better this week, he was sacked 6 times on Sunday and now we are reshuffling the O-line after Cody Whitehair was injured and put on the IR. Tevin Jenkins played well which was a positive sign. I want to see more of Justin, Mooney and the other receivers this week – we have to put points up in this one in order to win. Division games are the ones we really need to win, so come on down to Windy City Pizza, home of The Bay Area Chicago Bears Fan Club this Sunday and cheer on Da Bears as we go on the road to Minnesota. We’ve got to keep pace in our Division and get this win!

Game time is 10:00am so get here early. Our next two games after the Vikings are night games, first one is a short week on Thursday night, October 13th against Washington at home and then a Monday night game against New England on the 24th. Now all Thursday night games are on Prime Video TV only but Windy City will have the game on so plan for it. And we will be here for the Monday night game, as usual. See all of you this Sunday morning.

Let’s Go Bears! Bear Down!

Thanks, Ronnie D.


From Trish:

Vikings game was depressing enough that I ordered fries with my hot dog!
Was pretty happy when Dan said that he brought in his guitar to accompany the fans in belting out the Fight Song – not to be. Great having Carol and family at Windy City to celebrate her birthday and Dan text’d on Monday to say he quickly re-learned “Happy Birthday.” So we’ll have musical accompaniment in the house for whatever celebration comes our way. Thanks to the fans for always showing up and keeping everyone’s spirits high, regardless of the score.

Let’s go Bears – see you Sunday.

Bear Down! Sunday 9/18 5:20PM – Game 2: Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers

Hello Bears Fans!
Our Bears weathered the first half storm against the 49ers and took over the game in the second half to get the big win…they made my week! Bears looked like they were having fun at the end too, great energy! The message Ryan Poles had for the Bears when he arrived was “And the last thing, the most important piece is we’re gonna take the North and never give it back!” It starts Sunday night against the Packers, time to own Rodgers now! I know it’s on T.V. but come on down to Windy City Pizza so we can all enjoy this one together. I’ve got a good feeling we are going to go into Green Bay and kick some bleep and get it done!

It was great seeing everyone again after two long years. Thanks to Trish and Bob for hosting us since 1998. Wow – time flies! We all appreciated the breakfast foods for the opening game. Always great to see new faces in the house and sad to see fans move away, but the Bears club is going strong and I’m excited to see where our Bears go from here. I look forward to enjoying the season with all of you.
We beat the Niners. Yea! now let’s take care of The Packers Sunday night at 5:20pm.

See you all at Windy City Pizza.
Let’s Go Bears! Bear Down!

Thanks, Ronnie D.

Thanks to all the fans who showed up for the opener – nothing like all being together to see the Bears beat the Niners!

In our fans’ typical generous spirit of camaraderie, we had many great prize additions to the raffle table on Sunday. Big thanks to Cathy (who was at Soldier Field on Sunday), Virgine & Gio (who drive in from Turlock!), and Mario, for donating those terrific prizes. Dan told me last week he was donating the #1 shirt and wanted to raffle it off with proceeds going to the house to help with Windy City’s NFL Sunday Ticket fee (the commercial fee is way more expensive than residential.) No wonder we’ve missed this mid-Western spirit for the past two seasons! So Dan arrived with shirt and his own raffle tickets – ready to go! This is Dan’s project and he’ll be selling tickets at all Sunday morning games for the next several weeks. Please take a photo of your ticket for when we do the drawing. And thanks, Dan, for this great idea.

Go Bears!
Thanks, Trish
