Vito Stellino's picks

November 28, 1991

On "Da Bears" segment on the most recent "Saturday Night Live," da Bears' fans celebrated Thanksgiving with a real Bears feast -- pork chops, ribs, kielbasa, strip steak and home fries (you expected turkey?) -- and then they gave thanks.

Da Bears fans said, "On Thanksgiving, it's important to remember there are other places, gentleman, in the world that have things, well, some of the things they don't have that we take for granted. For example, Indianapolis, the Colts, a terrible team, with a really bad coach. Makes you want to shed the tears."

Baltimore no longer is the only place where lampooning the Colts is a cottage industry. It's now a national phenomenon.

Bears (+3) 21, Lions 17 -- Maybe da Bears won't mind playing indoors this week because they couldn't handle the snow Sunday.

Cowboys (-6 1/2 ) 23, Steelers 20 -- Are the Steelers going to work on defending the Cowboys' "Hail Mary" pass this week?

Last week's record: 6-8. Against the spread: 4-9-1 (I'm obviously choking down the stretch). Best bets: 2-2.

Season record: 114-55. Against the spread: 84-79-6. Best bets: 28-22.
