What a game last night! I'll admit it I didn't give the Bears much of a chance against the Packers who have dominated the series in Green Bay. However, in the battle of the backup quarterbacks, we had enough to win... the defense still STINKS! I'm totally pumped to do some tailgating this Sunday for the Bears/Lions game! So far after 9 Weeks of Football Picks this is where we stand:
How was your weekend?!? Had a chance to check out Thomas Rhett at Joe's Bar in Chicago Saturday night and it was fantastic! I wasn't sure what to expect, because I only know about 4 songs of his, but I left a big fan! If you haven't picked up his debut album, I totally recommend it!

JOSH BROLIN PICKS DRUNKEN FIGTH WITH BOUNCER, THEN HUGS IT OUT

In video obtained by TMZ, the actor can be seen brawling with the bouncers at O’Brien’s Irish Pub before one of the security guys convinces him to hug it out instead. At the end of the clip, the bouncer attempts to hail Brolin a cab as the wasted star tries to stumble away.
ALLIGATOR FOUND CRAWLING AROUND O'HARE AIRPORT
Officials in Chicago caught a foot-long alligator found crawling around Terminal 3 at Chicago O'Hare International Airport. Passengers spotted the animal Friday under an escalator and called police asking for help. "Figured somebody was messing with us," said Chicago Police Officer Anthony Oliver. Department of Aviation workers used a dustpan and broom to catch the animal and it was turned over to the city's animal control department. Police aren't sure how the alligator came to be at the airport, but suspect it may be the same one someone spotted being carried onto the Blue Line train. A photo of that animal on Twitter closely matches the appearance of the one caught at the airport. The alligator will be released into the wild after being held and receiving medical treatment for six months. It appears its owners didn't feed it properly.

Yesterday, had some fun at the house carving pumpkins with Mini Vinny, Rob, and Jager! I think I was the only one who enjoyed getting messy, the boys didn't like the slime! However, Jager did enjoy eating whatever Vinny dropped! Have you carved yours? Here are some tips on what to do with your pumpkins after the holiday:
TREAT THE BIRDS TO A SNACK – Attract feathered friends to your backyard by breaking the pumpkin into small pieces and setting it out in a bird feeder or shallow dish.
POWER UP NEXT SPRING’S PLANTS – Scatter chunks of pumpkin over your garden and cover with fall leaves – nutrients from the gourd will fertilize the soil, setting the stage for beautiful spring blooms.
HELP OUT A FARMER – OR YOUR LOCAL ZOO – Lots of animals love pumpkins. Contact local farms and zoos to see if they accept donations, and you’ll delight horses, lions, bears, gorillas and more.
