Word came out that my favorite player on the Chicago Bears team.. Brian Urlacher is retiring. Growing up in Omaha, Nebraska w/ no pro team to cheer for, Nebraska Cornhuskers were close, but I decided on Da Bears when I was in grade school. I was born in Chicago, but grew up in Omaha. I figured it made sense. BRIAN IS THE DEFENSIVE POWERHOUSE, and it's going to be hard watching the Bears play without him. I wish him well in his retirement, if that is really what he'll do. Could Brian pull a Bret Favre?
One of my favorite Urlacher moments...
THANK YOU BRIAN FOR PUTTING IN ALL YOUR BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS PLAYING FOR DA BEARS FOR SO MANY YEARS! YOU WILL BE MISSED ON THE FIELD! YOU ROCK BRIAN!!
