You may remember a time just a little more than two short weeks ago, a bright time, a hopeful time.
The time before the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship Game.
During those halcyon days, Patch arranged a friendly wager between the mayors of Darien, IL, and Oak Creek, WI.
If the Bears won, Oak Creek Mayor Dick Bolender would wear a Bears jersey. But if Green Bay won, Darien Mayor Kathleen Weaver would don a Packers jersey during the next meeting.
“So here I am,” Weaver said during Monday night’s meeting as she made good on the bet by wearing a Brett Favre jersey.
Thanks to Weaver for being a good sport about the bet. And I guess the Packers deserve a little bit of congratulations since they did win the Super Bowl and all.
Until next year, here’s one last GO BEARS!
