There is Your Dagger!

Published on: 1/23/2011

The first dagger was B.J. Raji's interception for a fourth quarter touchdown. 

Then the Bears' Lance Briggs intercepts a ball that ricochets off of the foot of Donald Driver.  The Bears have the momentum with minutes left to play. 

I'm thinking - This is the way it's going to turn out.  The dang Bears are going to tie the game and the Pack will lose in overtime.  The Bears lead a charmed life and we'll never hear the end of it.

Anybody else as nervous as we were?  Come on - admit it.

Then Sam Shields intercepts the Bears and it's all over.  The double dagger!

And not a moment too soon.

The sixth-seeded Packers are going to the Super Bowl.  Road warriors.

All the stops were pulled-out in last week in an effort to keep the good Ju Ju flowing.  Talismans were unpacked.  Packer Mardi Gras beads were hung from the Packer Tree.  I wore my Packer jacket all week long to the day job.  My 1995 Packer shirt was brought out of retirement and worn today.  Jill donned her LeRoy Butler jersey.  Brother-In-Law had left the hats and ball in the same place following last week's victory

Even Saint Vince was gazing-upon us with approval,

And Sister-In-Law's G-Force apple-cranberry victory pie was enjoyed by all.  

The Packer tree will remain on the porch until the Lombardi Trophy is returned to its rightful home in Titletown, USA.
