When the offense, the defense, and the coaches all say Jay did a great job then Jay must've done a great job. Jay looked sheepish and frustrated but he wasn't arrogant or annoyed. Jay did his job with great gusto while his teammates were sluggish. Everyone else ate chili with beans and cut-up hot dogs, extra-large malts, and double orders of fries drowned in ketchup while Jay obviously ate nothing that would make him play like a giant child. Wah wah wah, y'all. If I am complimenting Jay Cutler, then the rest of the team and the coaching staff need to get it together and play like for-real adult pro football players. Congrats to Jay (and, of course, to Robbie Gould who always holds up his part of the bargain).
The Lions maul the Bears so badly we can't recognize them: Detroit 24, Bears 13.
Next week I'll yammer on about the game tonight against the Vikings and next week's WTF game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in London, England. Seriously, the NFL doesn't ask me about these things ahead of time so don't blame me for them.
This weekend, the Chicago Architecture Foundation worked with dozens of buildings and companies to allow visitors to stroll through all day for two days, October 15 and 16. Called Open House Chicago, my sister, brother-in-law, and I took advantage of the opportunity to go inside buildings we either didn't know about or would not have been able to otherwise access.

This is called a compact Prarie House for good reason: the rooms are eensy by today's standards (the kitchen was just a slice) and the closets are either tiny or nonexistent. The ceilings are low but, bottom line, if someone handed me the keys and advised that this was now my home, I would have to think about it. The neighborhood is sketchy, public transportation is not terrible but the commute would be long, and there are no grocery stores nearby.
