Chicago Gets Ready For Another Super Bowl
For the last two weeks, I have been substitute teaching at a local high school. On Friday, I was telling the students about the 1986 Super Bowl. They looked at me with a blank look on their faces and I suddently realized that none of my students were even born when the Chicago Bears went to the Super Bowl in 1986. What a reality check. I remember the 1986 Super Bowl like it was yesterday.
My friend Tena, who was a Honey Bear cheerleader during that Super Bowl, is probably taking a similar reality check today, except she looks just as good today as she did in 1986. You go, Tena!
We are heading over to a deaf party tonight and I look forward to cheering on the Bears and sharing this piece of history with my kids.
On another note, Karen Meyer, ABC reporter, had a feature on a Bears player this morning:
