    List your reasons in this thread, fellas. Mine are, in no particular order:

    Buddy Ryan and the 46 Defense
    The GSH on the sleeves of the jerseys
    The fact that we play in Soldier Field
    The Fact that Soldier Field USED to look so BADASS with those DORIC Columns before it turned into an enormous spaceship after the renovation
    The classic "C" logo.
    The fact that the 1985 shall forever stand as the most DOMINANT single-season team in the history of organized sport.
    The fact that no team can match our history, YET we do NOT have a bandwagon, national following like the Steelers, Cowboys, Packers, etc.

    Okay, guys, I got you started...so what are some of the reasons that YOU LOVE the Bears?!

    Because they continually give us hope that "this is the year", only to break our hearts, balls and minds on their inevitable fall to failure each year. I'm sure there's a negative psychological connection between being a Bears/Cubs fan. Add in my Jets fandom, and it looks like I WANT teams that will never win a championship.

    They're those "lovable losers" like the Cubs. :D

    I'm a Cubs fan too. Both the Bears and Cubs, find ways to break your heart. :(

    I was born with Navy blue and orange skin ... all of society rejects me except BEARS fans who want to touch me.

    Because neither me nor them ever win anything. We were meant for each other.

    I like them, because they are usually polite enough to let us all know at a relatively early point in the season, to not get our hopes up, for football in February.

    Because they are THE CHICAGO BEARS ... case closed.

    Y'know ... you could have been born a jacksonville fan.

    Yep. And the difference is this year that the usual late season collapse started about 4 weeks early.

    Everything around me tells me I'm a Bears fan (or Blackhawks - Cubs). When I'm out hunting and the sun comes up in the morning (or during a nice sunset) I see bears orange. During autumn the trees turn myriad shades of Bears orange and remind me that it's Bear weather. When it snows at Christmas, everything is Bears white. I look at the veins in my arms and I see Bears navy blue coursing through them.

    When I get injured I bleed blackhawks red. When I get depressed I feel Cubby blue (fitting isn't it?).

    When I see puddles of dog piss on the kitchen floor or green mold in the fridge I'm reminded of how much I hate the packers.

    Why do I love the Bears? It's nature.
