The sign is still there

As of a few minutes ago, the big "Go Bears/praytostjude.org" sign is still up outside the Claretian Publications Building on West Monroe. I wasn't sure it would be.

I mean, it was one thing when the Bears were playing the Seahawks. But on Sunday -- it's the Saints.

Update -- January 17

A new visitor, "The Awkward Epiphany," left this comment: "Do you think the Saints have a monopoly on the spirits of all past saints?"

Well... no. It may have been a weak attempt at humor, but I'm not the only one having some fun with this.

Sneed's column, in this morning's Chicago Sun-Times quotes our own "pigskin prognosticator extraordinaire," Sr. Jean Kenny (a Sister of Providence if you keep track of these sorts of things) as predicting:

"Blustery Bears sideline Saints (even on a Sunday) 27-24."

Now, if Sr. Jean can make this little joke, so can I.

Twice now.
