What Are You Doing During The Bye Week?

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Nov 2, 2007 12:24PM

2006_09_sports_kyle_orton_jd.jpgThe Bears have their bye week this weekend, which means a weekend off for Lovie Smith's players. We imagine Kyle Orton will end up in some embarrassing photos taken in some college-town bar. We suspect that Brian Urlacher will stay home to rest his aching back... unless some starlet want to hang with him in Vegas. And perhaps Lance Briggs will use the free time to finally test drive some new rides.

It also means a weekend off for all of us Bears fans, who can now make other Sunday plans without worrying that we're missing the game. Because we all know the first time we have to miss a game for our buddy's wedding is the time they'll win by four TDs... and we'll have forgotten to set the Tivo.

So with the Bears off this weekend, what do you plan to do with your extra free day?
