Funny Thing About Memories… #Truth #FutureProvesPast

On an uber ride I was talking with a passenger about the Bears and the playoffs. One game came up, the 2006-07 NFC Championship game against the Saints. Both of us had different memories of the game, but after analyzing the overview and stats of the game, we both turned out to be right. He first stated that the Bears blew out the Saints. Well, if you only look at the score it did show the Bears won 39-14–Definitely a blow out. However, if you dig into the game analysis you would see that the Saints made the score 16-14 after an 88 yard touchdown by Reggie Bush from Drew Brees. The Bears ended up scoring 23 unanswered points to close out the game. For some reason I remember the final score being a lot closer, yet he didnt recall the game being that close in the 2nd half. The whole reason that game was brought up was because we disagreed about the impact the weather would have on the game. He thought a dome team couldn’t compete in the elements but clearly the Saints held their own for more than 2 quarters. It’s a funny thing about memories…
