Timmy Tebow Takedown - Review of KC Chiefs loss - Ep 12

We talk about the atrocity of a game the Bears played against the Kansas City Chiefs, but remind fans that all is not lost...yet. This is the biggest test of the year for Tim Tebow against a very fast Chicago Bears offense playing at a high level, probably the game of the week. Oh and yes, we mention Jesus.

Ep 11 - Chiefs at Bears preview and Oakland Review

Gone but not forgotten! We cover a myriad of subjects including Jay Cutler's injury, Jay Cutler's engagement, and Jay Cutler's favorite nail polish color. Only one of those three is not true. We talk about the Bears performance in Oakland, and what we expect to be an easy win for the Bears this Sunday in Chicago against the Chiefs.

Call or text 708-23-BEAR-1 and tell us what you think the score of the next game against the Denver Tebows will be. If you get it right, we'll send you something, promise!

Ep 10 - Power Hour Bye Week Special

Here it is!  Let us just warn you...we didn't have much to talk about during the Bears' bye, so we flew in a special guest...our friend named Pete from Minnesota.  We cover some general Bears talk, but we also get to witness Nick after performing over 2 "Power Hours" by the time the show was over. Some of the random things we touch on: UTEP, Merril Hoge, Mike Adamle, Sweetness, Tom Skilling, Jeff Skilling, internet searching, AP, Hunter Hillenmeyer, Big Cat Williams, and more!

Ep 9 - Win vs Vikings and London Bucs Will Fall Down

In this episode we cover a tear of flatulence, Mike has a seasonal beer, we consider adding "Snow" aka "The Informer" as a weekly part of the show with his horrible betting "Locks of the Week", we sing the praises of the Bears victory over a lowly Minnesota Vikings football club, and a look forward at the Bucs game in London.

Text or leave us a voicemail at 708-23-BEAR1 to let us know how you think the game will go in London!  You'll be featured on next week's show.

Ep 8 - Lions Stinker and Vikings on Sunday Night

Before we delve into the embarassment in Detroit, we talk about The Gallagher brothers from Oasis, adult kickball, chili beer, an old "American favorite" brew, hipsters, lots of text messages to 708-23-BEAR1 about different Bears situations, then we hit the horrible performance by the Bears in Detroit -- trying to find a silver lining (there is none), and we preview the Vikings game.

Oh and Nick was right; hipsters drink PBR, not Schlitz, as evidenced by this "Hipster Trap" I saw on

This podcast was made before the announcement to bench Chris Harris and Brandon Merriweather, so we didn't get into that.  Give us your thoughts on the Bears moves, 708-232-3271 (text or leave a voicemail).
