Detroit Free Press Lions Beat Writer Dave Birkett [AUDIO]

Amazingly the Bears have played on only THREE of the first SEVEN NFL Sundays. Since the last preseason game there have been three 10+ day gaps between games. It's led to me filling a lot of column space with tee shirt sales and contest posts.

No such problem today. Today we preview tonight's Bears v. Lions match-up with Free Press beat writer and friend of the blog, Dave Birkett. Dave's great. Give it a listen.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Stafford sporting a fear boner? check.

    Is your wife a bears fan, Willie? If so, you may not want to let her watch the game. I can only imagine what a stressful bears game would do to a woman on the brink of labor. Just have her wait unitl the 2nd quarter when we go ahead by three scores.

    God I can't wait.

    Tick-Tock. Tick Tock.

  • She is, Docsta! She even said, "I better not get too excited, that could induce!"

    She gets louder and more angry than me... She currently has an extreme hatred for Carimi. The penalties put her over the edge. I hear a lot of "we should have 7 more points right now!"

    Problem is, if she doesn't watch... we don't do too well (see: Jacksonville first half).

  • I plan on Stafford blowing a wet kiss out of his south mouth.

    On national TV.

    FUCKING DEAD.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    that made me giggle

  • It has to be the best pants-shitting euphemism of all time.

    We can all thank fellow Chicagoan Kyle Kinane for that nugget of wisdom.

  • Oh my! Do we have no more post lag?

    Testing testing.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Woo!

  • Hey guys, the commenting lag should be fixed. If it's still happening let me know. jgreenfield@tribune.com.

    Thanks for your patience.

  • In reply to Jimmy Greenfield:

    We're good Yimmy!

    Who's a good boy?!

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Easy big fella.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Yeah Willie. That was a misgnomer.

  • Rimshot!

    He's no longer persona gnome grata.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Rimshot?

    Answer: What Stafford is looking for from the D-Line tonight.

    HAY-OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH

  • In reply to Jimmy Greenfield:

    Looking good.

  • TOTO CATS = MUERTOS!!!!!!!

  • Ill be out in the elements tonight boys, personally watching paula poundstone simultaneously suffer south mouth bleeding and a poo boner (an erection that is caused from using the muscles in your butt to not poop in your pants) at the hands of Pep, Melt, Woot, and Chicken Din. It's gonna be nasty!! Bear down gents!!!

  • In reply to Crown:

    Hmm, never heard of that one before. Perhaps that's the state in which one enjoys a blumpkin?

  • charles woodson is out for the season

  • In reply to Dmband:

    He's alive!

    (DMB, not CW)

    Stick around, we'll be having punch and pie around 7pm.

  • In reply to Dmband:

    Dick Rash?

  • In reply to Dmband:

    woodson out for 6 weeks due to broken collar bone.

    So I guess the football gods gave me a b-lated bday dessert.

  • 2 collarbone breaks in 3 years? he gone.

    That's what you get for hurting Forte on purpose you fucking piece.

  • Odd's that Jimmy owns a big white van that is frequently seen near grade schools? Pretty good.

  • Alright! FINALLY. TGM? (thank god it's monday)

    It was my BDAY yesterday, and while the Vikes and Pack didn't lose, all will be ok if the Bears demolish the Meows on national tv.

    I did end up going to this club in Hollywood with barely dressed women though, so that was nice.

    And now the Gnome has fixed the code. The Matrix is restored.

    Bear Down!

  • Happy birfday maings, how many does that make for you now?

  • Happy B-Lated B-Day! Hope it was a good one.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Thanks dudes. I'm now 35. My great aunt just turned 100 though, putting me to shame.

  • Chris Williams a Ram.

  • Tend to think this is a solid move for St. Louis. But if they're looking for the next franchise left tackle, I feel for the entire Bradford family.

    Williams is a decent left guard, particularly in the running game. If a team figures that out, he's still young enough to have a nice career.

  • Giving a test in Calc III right now. Just had to throw some motherfucker out for cheating. He had the study guide that I made for them, sitting right on his lap. When I saw, I motioned for him to come up. At which point he slowly and nonchalantly let said study guide slip to the floor. I told him he's done and that he should leave. I told him to give me the piece of paper on his lap, not knowing at the time what it was exactly. He said, "I didn't use it, I just had it out". Yeah right dude. You're done.

    Jebus H Christ. Now I'm pissed. Few things piss me off like having to eject some motherfucker for cheating. Heart's beating fast. Palms sweaty. Goddamn it, I wish I could go strap on some pads and hit someone. Fuck.

    I fucking hate that shit.

    Sorry, had to get that off my chest.

    BEAR DOWN

  • Might I suggest drinking heavily?

  • Who does that kid think he is, a Kennedy?

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/politicians/tedkennedy.asp

    Sorry, Doc, when you throw a low hanging curveball, I have to swat.

  • I know that feeling Doc. It happens every time I have to fire someone. Had to fire a motherfucker this spring who had worked for me for 6 years for stealing gas. I figured it out after he stole well over 100 gallons, and who knows what else.

  • Willie -

    You need to incorporate The Skunk and South Mouth into a sentence... soon.

    Hester will be taking it to the house tonight.
