Bears Hall of Fame running back will be remembered in 2 segments Monday
Jarrett Payton is planning a "Remembering Sweetness" radio programs from 9 a.m. to noon and 7-10 p.m. Monday, the 11th anniversary of the death of Bears Hall of Fame running back Walter Payton.
Among those scheduled to call in to http://www.chicagolandsportsradio.com to share stories are Jim Brown, Emmitt Smith, Barry Sanders, Jim McMahon and Ahmad Green.
"It is going to be really special," Payton said.
Word on the street: Bears defensive tackler Anthony Adams was named the team's recipient of the 2010 Ed Block Courage Award, presented to one player on all 32 NFL teams who best exemplifies a commitment to sportsmanship and courage and serves as an inspiration in the locker room.
Sights seen: The Blackhawks had a team Halloween party and forward Viktor Stalberg said the best costume was that of defenseman Jon Scott, who dressed up as Frankenstein. "He had these big heels on and at 6 feet 8 he looked like he was 7-4," he told WGN-AM 720. The worst costume, according to Stalberg, was Patrick Sharp's. "I think he just wore whatever his wife told him to wear," Stalberg chuckled.
