    I have been a Bear fan since the early 50s and still remember Zeke Bratkowski and George Blanda as Bear QBs. I am also a Cub fan, love visiting Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio, and am a History buff big time. In three years , if I'm lucky, I will be 80 years old. Oh, I am a Chicagoan but now live in Kewanee Ill. I am a "product" of Angel Guardian Orphanage, and then of Lane Tech HS. class of '55. My favorite Bear is Gale Sayers, and of the current players it's Peanut.

    Yeah, I loved watching Sayers. I became a Bears fan during the glorious '63 season, and continued ever since. I joined this board about a month ago. I'm stayin' even if they won't let me get into their special bar for a cold beer.
