So, this college kid wrote an essay for an English class attempting to prove that the 1985 Chicago Bears were the best football team ever, with the next closest team being the 1972 Miami Dolphins. He put most of it online. More than a year later, the editor of a newspaper in Alaska reads it and writes a column defending his favorite team, the 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers, as best ever. Boy, team allegiances run deep.
