In today's Chicago RedEye (To the Chicago Tribune what Readers Digest is to the Complete Annotated Works of William Shakespeare), a list of things that have happened since Jan. 8th, 1989, the last time the Bears were in the NFC Championship Game.
Among the favorites...and more improbable.
--Ten, yes, ten Will Smith movies have grossed more than 100 million dollars in the United States.
--The Bulls have won 6 championships, the White Sox have won one. The Cubs have lost 1,474 games.
--Mayor Daley was elected, and has since served almost five terms, without ever having been indicted.
--All 18 seasons of "The Simpsons."
--Britney Spears won a Grammy.
--Arnold Schwarzenegger went from starring in "Kindergarten Cop" to governing the State of California.
--Likewise, and perhaps most improbably, most of the YCS staff managed to somehow graduate from kindergarten.
