I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. If you’re a resident of the Chicago area, the weather was more like “Bear weather” than the kickoff to the summer season. On with the links:
In case you can’t get enough Brian Urlacher coverage, we’ve got you covered:
Urlacher ranked his top five games and the top three shouldn’t surprise you.
Peter King with an excellent piece on the retiring Bears legend and the game that epitomized his play.
The Bears website has a “best of Urlacher mic’d up“. I can’t wait for the Xfinity bloopers reel.
The Sun Times and Adam Jahns take you back to Urlacher’s New Mexico roots. No, Urlacher is not Mexican.
ChicagoNow’s Da Bears Blog’s Jeff Hughes was moved to create an Ode to 54. He’s a poet and he doesn’t even know it!
In non-Urlacher news, Moon Mullin talks about a durable Bears offensive line. Yeah, I don’t believe it either.
ESPN Insider and all over the place analyst Matt Bowen projects Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery to have a breakout season in 2013. Phil Emery hopes he’s right. So does Jay Cutler.
Shea McClellin summed up the other news on the Chicago sports scene with the Tweet of the Day:
Game 7! #Blackhawks
