I took this photo one Sunday evening in January of 2007.
This photo of a Chicago Sun Times newspaper vending machine, was taken at the Elmwood Park Metra commuter rail station. This was two weeks before Superbowl 41 in Miami Florida, and the Bears had just won the playoffs.
There was excitement all over the greater Chicagoland area, as the front page of the newspaper proclaimed that the Chicago Bears were going to be in Superbowl 41. Many people thought that the windy city would experience the same magic Chicago did in 1986 when we won Superbowl 20 against the New England Patriots.
It wasn't meant to be in 2007. The Indiannapolis Colts were the team that was victorious in a very rainy Superbowl 41.
Chicago Bears superbowl fever. It was nice while it lasted.
