Bears Cowboys fight

I watched a good portion of the Dallas-Chicago game last night, and I was very pleased with the outcome. The Bears lost, first and foremost, and the players that I had a vested interest in for fantasy football reasons (Alshon Jeffrey, DeMarco Murray) had good games.

These fans? Not so happy.

Per the Chicago Tribune:

Two Bears fans were stabbed during an alcohol-fueled fight with Cowboys fans in a parking lot outside Soldier Field after the game, police said.

The fight started around 10:45 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of East 18th Street when four men began yelling "the Bears suck" at two men from Oak Lawn, according to a police report.

“The victims yelled back 'Cowboys suck,' " and someone from the group of Cowboys fans threw beer into the eyes of one of the Bears fans, the report said. The Cowboys fans then jumped on the Bears fans and cut them, the report said.

Oh, and then the best part. 

Police said both groups appeared to have been drinking.

Not that anything like this is really justifiable, but the Cowboys fans have a point. The Bears do suck. I've chanted "The Bears Still Suck" on plenty of occasions. I now feel fortunate never to have been stabbed.
