    WEIRD NEWS: Bears Help Unpackers!(Posted 3:00 AM, 9/13/2006)


    If Brett Favre had bought a La-Z-Boy at the World Furniture Mall near Plano, Illinois over Labor Day weekend, it might help explain why the Green Bay Packer quarterback took such a beating Sunday from the Chicago Bears. The furniture store promised that if the Bears shut out the Packers in the season opener in Green Bay, Labor Day weekend shoppers would get their furniture free. Sure enough, the Bears posted a staggering 26-to-nothing victory, handing Favre his first career shutout and ending the Packers' 233-game streak of always putting something on the scoreboard. Store owner Randy Gonigam sat agog Sunday evening as the Bears pulled off the unthinkable -- a feat worth about a quarter-of-a-million-dollars to his customers.
