One year ago today, the impossible became a reality. The Bears landed a franchise QB. Regardless of what anyone says I still believe that he is. His numbers are similar to many great QB's in their fourth year, like Peyton Manning. I think you'll see him look great this year, sort of like he did in the last two games last year. In commemoration of this great day I'd like to reminisce for a little bit on where I was when the trade happened:
I had just come back from I cannot remember where. I had been constantly refreshing webpages to see if there was any news. After all, there were rumors out there that we were a suitor. So, I walked up to my computer after coming back from where ever I was and as I hit refresh on KFFL.com's "Hot of the Wire" page and I see breaking news: Bears Trade for Jay Cutler. I pull out my phone to text everyone I know. Immediately as I pull out my phone Steve, our fellow ACSS poster, texted me something along the line of "Bears trade for Jay Cutler." Then my brother, then my cousin (who isn't even all that into football). Then I knew I had to run to call my now fiancé, Annette (who I post as on here sometimes... oops). As I ran I had to go to the bathroom real bad. Keep in mind I'm in my law school's library. So, I'm running, and I'm farting out loud with each step I take. Of course I ignore it. I call Annette, and she already knows... dang. I spent the rest of the day getting texts from people I forgot to text and celebrating with Steve the day we traded for Jay Cutler! 4/2/2009 Will Always have a place in my heart!
