Farewell Julius Peppers and Why I Think I Like You - No Football Involved

The Chicago Bears just gave the veteran defensive end Julius Peppers the ax. However, it was the friendly ax…thank you for all you’ve done for the Bears …however you’re getting too old (34)…there’s the money issue…and you haven’t been that “good in the sack” department (football reference only).

Brian Urlacher Jerseys Saved From The Goodwill Pile

Ever since Brian Urlacher began his negotiations with the Bears, I have been duly concerned about the fate of the Brian Urlacher #54 Jerseys owned by tens of thousands of Bear’s fans. If you are at Soldier Field, or for that matter, at any sports bar in the city on a Bear’s game day, what... Read more »
