Looking forward to Sunday’s big NFC Championship game between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers, it should be known that Packers are favored… at least from a domain perspective. Hey, I was born and raised in Chicago so I’m a Bears fan by default. The Bears and Packer fans have an unprecedented rivalry. But the official Packers site can be found at Packers.com. If you go looking for the Bears at Bears.com, you’ll end up with some cute tee shirts on a Zazzle backed site.
Alright, so someone beat them to Bears.com. Understandable, it happens. The official site is ChicagoBears.com, so not a bad second choice. But if I was an NFL team, I might want to look into acquiring that sweet Bears.com domain, and maybe a few other related names. How about TheBears.com? That’s currently a parked page with a “this domain may be for sale” link at the bottom.
Some people say that those from Chicago have an accent. While that’s not true, and no one from the Midwest has an accent, everyone else does, sometimes the team is referred to as Da Bears. That said, DaBears.com is also owned and operated as what appears to be a fan site, with whois privacy in place.
Good luck to the Bears on Sunday, I’ll be rooting for ya.
