Chapter 1

I died in the second half of the Bears versus Vikings game. The one when the Bears beat Minnesota. Of course I didn’t learn the score until much later. Had to look it up. But I’ll get to that. It was supposed to be a monumental game. The Packers’ quarterback had defected to the Vikings and that meant Wisconsin fans were rooting for the Chicago Bears, which was unheard of. So my sudden change in color to blue and my slumping back on the couch probably went unnoticed for a few minutes. That’s my best guess anyway. A little warning would have been nice. But no. A lethal arrhythmia is apparently a silent event. My wife and I, we were over at a friend’s place in the city and I think that’s when it happened. What happened after that, well, it’s a long story. I’ll tell you what I remember.
