Simon who? Yep, you heard me, and no, the medication I'm on isn't affecting my thinking. For those who have decided against watching American Idol this year, (as I contemplated), I suggest you give it another look! The first thing that was obvious was the "fun" that I think we're all in for with the panel of judges, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson. The voices are what they are judging, not looks, weight, or anything else Simon made it a point to belittle and humiliate. Yes, he knew talent, no question, but was always turned by a pretty girl with big boobs... J.Lo has altered the way I thought of her, and unless it's all an act and changes along the way, I have to say she is a wonderful addition to the judges table... Always loving the wild and wacky Steven Tyler, I found myself smiling and just enjoying watching him watching the contestants and enjoying some of the very good voices that I heard already. We all know he will be *Bleeped* a few times a show, but it's what makes him fun and not at all offensive... Randy is probably the most negative of the bunch, but that is understandable because he's been there so long and isn't trying to fit in. He's also aware how many crash and burn in Hollywood and is making sure he's the choosiest... I admit, I'm a sucker for Underdogs and some of the stories and contestants that weren't "cookie cutter molds" caught my eye and ears and I'm already rooting for them to do well in Hollywood, but we still have a longgggg way to go before we get through all the other "stuff"... So, those of you who watched, what did YOU think? *** While American Idol may have been the big thing to watch on TV this week, it pales in comparison to the event that I am preparing for and that is the NFC Championship between my Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers for the chance to go to the Super Bowl... I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm "worried" because the Packers are good, tough, and may be hard to beat all the way through. Rodgers scares me and unfortunately, Cutler sometimes scares me more, if you get my drift! Defense is strong on both sides, but I give that edge to Da Bears and the weather, which is called "Bear Weather" is a wash since it's colder in Green Bay and could be called "Packer Weather." Home field advantage is a plus that may or may not have an impact. I'd like to think it gives a slight edge which is all they may need... Flyboy is bummed he has to work, but I will be hosting the NFC Championship party here with my two defensive ends, Moosie and Ginger. I will be taping up the rib that went from being bruised to cracked according to the last X-ray, because yelling hurts as much as coughing and I won't be able to stop either one during the game! Of course I will be wearing all the appropriate Bears clothing, and who knows, I may not even shave my legs for the full "Grizzly" affect...I know, TMI... Sorry for going on about Da Bears, but I love football soooo much and this is one of those rare occasions that we get to root for the team I love. I will wish the Packers fans good luck, but not too much of it, if you don't mind... :-) And for all my Bears fans, please join me in prayer... Our father, who art in Chicago, football be thy game. Let Forte run, another Superbowl won, on earth as it is in Soldier Field. Give us Sunday a playoff VICTORY and forgive us our penalties, as we defeat the Packers who play against us, and lead us not into the late season and deliver us to Texas. For thine is the D-line, Urlacher, Briggs, Tillman, Hester and Peppers forever...Amen! Pass it on Bears Nation!! Have a great weekend everyone! :-)
