A little Chicago Bears History

                               

The Chicago Bears are in Philadelphia tonight for their game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Mitchell & Ness welcomes the Bears to Philadelphia. Below are some facts about the team that you may or may not know. And of course we couldn't leave out the Super Bowl Shuffle!

The 1940s was a fabulous decade for the Chicago Bears. How many NFL Championships did they win during that time?

The Bears won 4 NFL Championships in that decade. In 1940, the Bears beat the Redskins 73-0. In 1941, they beat the Giants 37-9. In 1943 versus the Redskins 41-21, and in 1946 versus the Giants 24-14. The Bears were in the championship game in 1942, however, they were defeated by the Washington Redskins 14-6.

From 1919-2002, which stadiums did the Chicago Bears call their home field?

Staley Field was home for the Bears from 1919-1920, Wrigley Field from 1921-1970, Soldier Field from 1971-2001. The Bears played at Memorial Stadium for the 2002 season while Soldier Field was being renovated. 

                                            

Who led the Bears in receptions in 1986?

Willie Gault. Willie Gault was the first wide receiver to lead the Bears in receptions since James Scott in 1977. 

Which Chicago Bear player was NFL Rookie of the Year in 1961?

Who was the first Chicago Bear to score more than 1000 points in his career?

Kevin Butler. Butler achieved this with his first quarter field goal against the New England Patriots in December 1994.

Which team recorded the "Super Bowl Shuffle"?

The 1985 Chicago Bears!  We've posted this video in the past, but it is just so great, we had to post it again.

R.I.P. Bob Forsch

Unfortunately we have to do another R.I.P. post today, this time for Cardinals pitching legend Bob Forsch.   Forsch died suddently yesterday at the age of 61. 

Forsch made his major league debut in 1974 with the St. Louis Cardinals.  He spent 14 1/2 seasons in a Cardinals uniform and 1 1/2 as an Astro.  Forsch was a 15 game winner twice in his career ('75 & '82) and won 20 games in 1977.  He is best known as being the only Cardinal to throw two no hitters.  His first came in 1978 against the Phillies and the second was in 1983 against the Expos.  Both no hitters were thrown at Busch Stadium.

 He was a key member of the Cardinals teams that went to three World Series' in the 80's,  winning it all in 1982. Forsch finished his career with a 3.76 ERA and a very impressive .213 career batting average.

You may have seen Bob last week when he threw out the first pitch in the game seven of the World Series.

R.I.P. Bob.

R.I.P. Matty Alou

Matty Alou, a former MLB batting champion, passed away yesterday at the age of 72.  Alou played in the majors from 1960 - 74, primarily with the Giants and Pirates.  He had a career batting average of .307 with his strength being as a singles hitter.  Starting his career with the Giants, Alou was primarily a bench player.  Matty and his brothers Felipe and Jesus made history with the Giants when in 1963, all three brothers played in the outfield at the same time.

Alou was traded to the Pirates prior to the 1966 season.  In his first year in Pittsburgh Alou finished the season with a .342 batting average, which was enough to win the batting title.  Alou's brother Felipe finished second to his younger brother with an average of .327After five successful seasons in Pittsburgh, two of them being All Star years ('68 & '69), the Pirates sent him to St. Louis before the 1971 season.  He played for four more years before finishing his career in 1974 with the Padres.

R.I.P. Matty.
