December 29, 1963, The NFL Championship Game against the NYG. As typical, the Bears defense ruled the day against a powerful NYG offense. We could not watch the game on TV, because someone in the family had just passed away (in those days it was considered inappropriate) so my Dad and I sneaked out to the car and listened to the game on the radio. My dad went nuts when Ritchie Petitbon intercepted a pass in the end zone with 10 sec left to seal the 14-10 victory. That's when I became a Bear fan, and it has been that way ever since.
