Since the Super Bowl started, only two have featured the Chicago Bears. The 44 other Bear-less bowls have created a quandary for Chicago fans. Who the heck do we cheer for?

They knocked the Packers out of the playoffs. Let's face it. Watching the Bears lose to the Pack four times in the 2011 calendar year was not fun. Watching them win the Super Bowl was painful.
