85 Bears: Best Ever

At least according to Illinois lawmakers. The Illinois General Assembly unanimously decided last week to designate the 1985 Chicago Bears the greatest football team of all time. The Chicago City Council passed a similar law last month. That will sure end the debate.

This is the kind of thing that is really going to piss off Nick Buoniconti and the 1972 Dolphins. Look for members of the two teams to rumble during the pregame show of Super Bowl XL. The winner gets a bottle of chamagne.

House Minority Leader Tom Cross was the lead sponsor and said, "Of course they were the best, didn't you see the Super Bowl shuffle?"

And here we thought only sports editors had that kind of time to waste.

Who was the greatest team of all-time? Talk about it in the Hater Nation Forums, voted too hot for the Internet by the Association of Humorless Poopy Pants.

Zach -- You didn't hear it from me, but word over at the water coolers is that some Dean Wormer-type, humorless, choad sports editor with too much time on his hands is pissed off at the existence of this site and the fact that it's better-written and more entertaining than his stodgy newspaper. But that's only what I heard over at the water cooler.

I like the fact that the book you pulled the photo from is 40% off. I mean, come on... "20th Anniversary Collector's Edition"? Didn't people stop collecting shit on the 85 Bears after Jim McMahon signed with the Saints?
