Just wanted to give a shout out to my Chicago Bears who made it to the Superbowl. We are rooting for you and we even are praying for you.
This is me and Tommie Harris #91 on Da Bears. He came to Village Church of Barrington two years in a row to talk to the kids about how he lives his faith on and off the field and if he can live his faith around so many who are not Christians, then we can too. It was really neat to meet him. He took time to talk to each group, sign some autographs and take pictures. He is really sweet. He is #91 because that is his favorite Psalm. Read it, it's a good one. He got injured this season so he will not be playing in the superbowl. My favorite Christmas gift was a Harris jersey from Jordan, Kelly and Lynn.
My other cool Bears fact is that this fall I worked at a School as an aide for a little boy and the son of Alex Brown #96 goes there. I would play catch with him at recess. One day I asked him who taught him how to throw a football and he said, "The Bears." He was four at the time and could throw a perfect spiral every time and no matter how I threw it he could catch it. I saw him on the news this past week when they were covering the kids of the players. He predicted the game 38-14. We'll see how his prediction goes.
I don't think I have any other personal Bears stories, oh yeah, I played a half time show at the old soldier field, during preseason, when I was in highschool and got in big trouble cause I was cheering for the Raiders. I wanted to be different, but didn't realize at the time how rude that was to our hosts. Oh well, you live and learn.
Have a great day and . . .
