My dad was a Bears fan,and so I always watched the games with him as a boy (beginning late 1950s), but I would say I became an avid fan during the 1963 championship season. Then came the Packers dynasty, but at least we had the great Butkus and Sayers to watch. Then came the Dark Ages -- you young guys missed those years, but you didn't miss much. Then, after suffering many years of mediocrity -- the glorious 1985 Bears. What was sad for me was that my dad died in 1983,so he never got to see that team. I hope to see Bears win another Superbowl. I'm in the 4th quarter of life now, but there's still some time on the clock!
