It might be just fun to some. It may be annoying to others. But there’s something more.
I mean, I’m here for any touchdown/turnover celebration. I think they should start taking suggestions from fans on Twitter or something. Fun is good. But it’s more than that.
People in this town should know just what a loose and enjoyable atmosphere can do for a team. Look no further than the 2016 Cubs, who stared down a 108-year championship drought with a goofy grin and a disco ball. Being relaxed is a weapon at pressure times.
These Bears have fun. They have swagger. And while swagger only comes from winning and productivity, that doesn’t mean it can’t aid it and feed off each other going forward.
These Bears want you to know how much fun they’re having, and how much better they think they are than you. These wins are hard to get no matter who you are, and the Bears are going to enjoy every moment of getting them. And it goes straight to the coach as shown in the previous slide.
These kinds of things bring a team together, and that can’t be discounted either. You may not get this again.
And the fans should take the cues from the players. These Bears know they’re onto something special here. They have at least and probably better than a puncher’s chance against any team they’ll see come January. It doesn’t have to make sense. The Bears aren’t going to shrink from the chance that’s before them. They’re going to dance and strut right into it, because you don’t know where the next one is.
Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. Take today and dance. The Bears are. We should too.
