    haha, thanks for replying OMC. At least I have one fellow animal lover on the board. Personally, I was disappointed that more folks didn't appreciate this ADORABLE Bears video!!!

    Cute and cuddly little cubs are adorable, but that's baseball. This is football season, and we want Da Bears to act like Bears, not cubs.

    Well, if it weren't for the Cubs, we would not have the Bears

    What TheBenjamin just stated is true. Halas intentionally piggy-backed on the popularity of the Cubs by selecting "Bears" as the new team name in 1922. Soooo, if the Cubs had been named the Chicago Bears, I assume Halas would have named us the Chicago Cubs! :002: ....hmmmm...perhaps he would have just selected "GRIZZLY Bears" as the new team name. Anyway, here is the relevant info/history:

    The Staleys moved to Chicago from Decatur, IL in 1921. Halas, who was given the team and $5000 by A.E. Staley to keep the name Staleys for another year, made the move. In the 1921 season, the Chicago Staleys finished first in the league and captured their first league championship.

    In 1922, Halas changed the team name to the Bears to reflect and honor baseball's Chicago Cubs, the city's most popular team AND his team's host at Wrigley Field.

    awwww...Benji...I was just being "cheeky" while dropping some historical knowledge on everyone. Not everyone has a PhD from Halas Hall in Bears History like we do, you know!:10 1 9[1]:
