The Chicago Bears captured the NFL championship yesterday, rolling up the most lopsided score in the history of the Super Bowl to defeat the New England Patriots, 46-10, in Super Bowl XX in New Orleans. Quarterback Jim McMahon and an intimidating defense led the Bears to victory before a crowd of 73,818 at the Superdome and a national television audience estimated at more than 110 million, and they touched off a celebration among Chicago's long-suffering fans. McMahon, who was in the news more than any other player during the preceding week, rushed for two touchdowns and set up several other Chicago scores with his passing.

There was quite some hulla-Belew raised by The Bears at the Chestnut Cabaret on Tuesday night. This unassuming quartet, led by one of rock's pre- eminent guitarists, Adrian Belew, demonstrated aggressive and accomplished musicianship. Belew, who is best known for his work with Talking Heads and King Crimson, has primarily confined himself to arty realms. His union with these little- known former members of Cincinnati's The Raisins finds him entering full- force into mainstream rock.

CHICAGO - Jay Cutler threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall and Robbie Gould kicked field goals of 39 and 21 yards as the Bears defeated the Detroit Lions, 13-7, on Monday night. The 5-1 Bears solidified their spot atop the NFC North, while the last-place Lions (2-4) lost for the fourth time in five games. Cutler completed 16 passes in 31 attempts for 150 yards. He also sent a scare through the Bears when, midway through the second quarter, he was slammed to the ground on a sack by Ndamukong Suh. Cutler was on the ground for a few minutes and was attended to by a team trainer before jogging off the field.

What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of the spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts soon happens to man. - Chief Seattle, 1853 In the 1980s, poachers trafficking in bear parts illegally killed about 310 of the 500 black bears that roamed the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Operation Smoky, a joint federal-state undercover operation, put a stop to the slaughter - at least temporarily. The grizzly bear is even more at risk from its interactions with man: Where about 100,000 once roamed the American West, only 1,000 remain south of the Canadian border, threatened not just by illegal hunting but by the encroachments of mining, logging, ranching and recreational activities.

The Chicago Bears took another step toward leaving town, suspending negotiations over the city's proposed $156 million renovation of Soldier Field. Talks scheduled yesterday to discuss personal seat licenses at the aging lakefront stadium, an arrangement that would require fans to pay for the right to buy tickets, were canceled. Mayor Richard Daley's plan would not give the team enough revenue and would not provide an "NFL-caliber stadium," Bears vice president of operations Ted Phillips said.
