The Chicago Bears are hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football and they traded shots early. Then the Bears began to run away with it and had a solid 24-14 lead at the half.
During the break the Bears honored Mike Ditka and retired his jersey. He braved single digit temperatures to stand at midfield and address the crowd.
He didn’t rush it either and stood and talked for a bit before saying “thank you” repeatedly and eventually yelling “go Bears” before running off the makeshift stage to go back indoors.
“Thank you, thank you and thank you and GO BEARS!” – Mike Ditka
