Brad Biggs is reporting that the Chicago Bears will add a sponsor patch to their practice jerseys for their upcoming training camp, which is set to open in just 10 short days.
Just in time to get their practice jerseys sewn up before reporting to Olivet Nazarene University for training camp, the Bears have struck a sponsorship deal with North Shore University Health System.
Part of the contract calls for the Bears to wear a sponsorship patch on their practice jerseys. So, get your cameras ready for the new look starting July 31 in Bourbonnais, Ill.
Let me go on record saying I don’t like this. Sponsored by a bunch of hospitals? Are you asking for injuries? It just seems like bad mojo to me. How about getting Chico’s Bail Bonds or Marconi Foods to sponsor the practice jerseys? Anything but a chain of hospitals!?!?!
