Chicago remembers Walter Payton

Chicagoans at the Bears game against the Browns today saw a tribute to football legend Walter Payton on the 10-year anniversary of his death.

Twitterers commented on the video clip shown at half time and some are campaigning to make #sweetness, Payton's nickname, a trending topic on Twitter. Some were upset to see CBS only broadcast a short clip and not the entire video.

    PWSullivan CBS gives short shrift to Walter Payton ceremonies. We could've gone without the highlights and inane studio banter to hear Connie talk.

There will never be another one like #34 Sweetness, on or off the field.
