It’s a bye week for the Bears. And after losing 3 of their last 4 games, the boys in blue and orange could use some old-school, ’80s-like karma to kick ’em in the pants.
So to re-ignite the fire within Bear Nation, I decided to share my awkward photo with Mike Ditka.
When a recent trip to the Windy City led to the once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity with Da Coach, I took advantage of the moment…even if the legend wasn’t as enthused about the encounter as I was.
- My way ‘too-close-for-comfort’ lean into Ditka.
- That ‘Da Coach’ appears to be growling something.
- The strategically placed $20 bill in Ditka’s pocket…which believe it or not, was NOT a bribe on my part to get him to pose for the photo.
While we barely exchanged a word, the picture is a dream for a now grown-up kid who’s fanatically followed this man and his team for 25 years of his life.
