    This is yet another reason why Long is my favorite current Bears player.

    A parent contacted Kyle Long on twitter talking about how his kid is bullied on the school bus.

    Long offered to ride the bus to protect the kid (if he got permission of course)

    What a draft pick this man has been. He is fully on his way to being beloved by Bears fans.

    How cool would that be if he did that for the kid !
    Bullies cowering in the back of the bus for sure.

    It's not in the article but, the parent responded that their looking into whether Long will be allowed to do it or not so it might actually happen.

    The story is fantastic already and how great would it be if Long actually went through with it?

    There is actually an organization that does this for abused children. Some very cool (and touching) stories.

    But back on topic ... It looks like Kyle will be a long term good character member of the team. Seems to be a real stand up guy.

    Cool move by Long... be a nice vote of confidence for the kid. Long is an interesting follow on twitter.

    And my struggle to decide whether to buy a 75/Long or 69/Allen jersey continues.

    Tough choice right there. Long is well on his way to becoming a big-time fan favorite and I honestly believe that Allen will also be a fan favorite too.

    If it was me and I could only choose one, I'd go with #75 for sure.

    But why not buy both?

    These guy are awesome. They get thorough background checks before being allowed to become a member. They may resemble 81's, but they are a very safe group for kids to be around. One of the safest.

    I have a friend that is a very active part of their group in Arizona. He's also retired USN Officer, part of Sheriff Joe's "Posse" and a Patriot Guard Rider.

    I found a bunch of stories about these guys (and girls) on a blog site. What they do for the abused children is possibly more valuable than years of therapy. These kids are deprived of any concept of safety and security and this group restores that sense of security for them.

    I have this vision in my head of the looks on the bullies faces when this gets on the bus holding the little guys hand.

    It'd be like a scene right out of a movie. LOL

    I had a co-worker come back from China with a $15 Urlacher knock off jersey for me with the Super Bowl XLI patch on it. BUT it was a white jersey (they wore navy in the game) and had GSH on both sleeves.

    Good stuff. I'm sure of a few things about Kyle Long:

    1) He has an '85 Bears personality

    2) THIS is the type of attitude the line has needed since '06

    3) He needs to be a Bear for life.
