Mea Culpa...Latin for "My Bad"

Can you still say "Dabbearse"?

Sorry for the bad tip last week about the potential for the Bears-Seahawks game. As it turned out, Chicago annihilated Seattle by an official score of umpteen to very little. I dunno, but when you go cruising past an unbeaten team even this early in the season without looking like you're even trying, well, it might be time for Chicagoans to get those 1986 Superbowl sweatshirts out of mothballs and make sure the television works on game days.

...And they still have Kyle Orton on the bench.

Dood, that was the 85 Bears. The best team in NFL history!

You betcha. This might have been an uninteresting game to non-Chicagoans but every second was a treat to us. I live within eye-shot of Soldier Field and I have to say that the place had a Super Bowl atmosphere. People were tailgating by 4:00 pm.

It's awfully early in the season but I'm digging out my 1985 championship hats and shirts.

Right, who won Superbowl XX on Jan. 26th, 1986.

What else does "my bad" mean?

I'll admit the Bears looked pretty tough (Sorry, I don't know the Latin equivalent) but there are a lot of games left. Personally, I thought the Seahawks had a terrible showing but a lot of that was the result of a stingy Bears defense.

In this context, "my fault" seems to imply that it's your fault that the Bears won...

No, it's my fault the Shiites can't get along with the Sunnis. Or didn't you read the piece?

Gero vultus pervalidus?

I was in Illinois on business a couple of weeks ago. It sounds like they are already planning the Superbowl parade. I think they might have even filed for a permit.

I think I would welcome that JUST so they would stop talking about 1985.
