I remember both games very well.
I threw up after the 98 game.
My wife did not get it.
My kids were still young enough, and not quite brain washed by their mother yet as a bear fan, that they both crawled up on the bed with me, rubbed my back, gave me hugs and kisses, as I cried my eyes out.

I felt real good about winning the NFC Championship, but to be honest, Denver looked real good also in the Super Bowl.
I was happy to see Elway win, and would have loved to see us play in that game, but did not want to lose SB #5.
That would have been way to painful.
